Excerpt
INTRODUCTION The eradication of malaria is still based primarily on complete interruption of transmission for a period long enough for natural disappearance of previously existing malaria infections, More definite information on the course of this untreated malaria to its disappearance would be helpful in guiding eradication programmes and indicating their success or failure. It is particularly important to know if new infections can be identified or an estimate made of time since infection took place, Unless some estimate can be made of the probable date of infection, adequate epidemiological investigation cayot be made to determine the source of infection or the factors which led to a breakdown in eradication procedures. Of equal importance is knowledge of the length of time untreated infections may last of sufficient intensity to be identified by the usual examination of a blood smear. There are several reports on the duration of infections with P. falciparum, ) . An experimental infection untreated was found patent up to 567 days by Jeffery (1954). Observations have been reported of positive blood smears 19 months following the removal of the individual from the area where infection was acquired (Waiters, 1960) , The entire subject has also been reviewed by Cove11 (1960).
