Abstract

Lincoln Timinao investigated the transmission of malaria parasites between Anopheles farauti mosquitoes and symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals in Papua New Guinea. He found out that there were variable immune responses from symptomatic individuals to serum replacement experiments and also confirmed that asymptomatic individuals are transmitting malaria within a community.
