Figure 7

The temporal dissociation in falciparum malaria between changes in gametocytaemia and effects on infectivity following primaquine administration. Individual data from studies of mosquito infectivity following anti-malarial treatments of falciparum malaria with plasmoquine or primaquine in which oocyst assessments were made in mosquitoes which fed ~24 hours after drug administration [10]. Oocysts were assessed typically in 10-20 mosquitoes 6-7 days after feeding. Each pair of circles or diamonds represents a studied patient.
