Abstract : During the reporting period, 457 compounds were screened in the PCT and PMT. Of these 5 were designated confirmed or unconfirmed active and 23 were toxic. Nine compounds were tested in the SCT. Upgrading of research mouse colony facilities was begun. Mark and release studies of Anopheles darlingi at the Ituxi River Study Area are being conducted to determine dispersal patterns from possible larval breeding sites. Construction of an insectary is nearing completion at the University of Brasilia. Preliminary studies to Colonize An. daringi have been initiated.
