Abstract:

The objective of this program is to develop a mosquito repellent which is effective when given internally, preferably orally, in order to afford better protection than the conventional surface repellents presently available. Development of a bioassay technique for testing candidate agents using mice as bait and radioactive albumin as an indicator and the repellent properties of several chemical compounds were previously reported. The present report describes further progress on this program. Author
