Abstract:

During the period covered by this report, a series of studies was done on the cell physiology of the malaria parasite. The studies were outgrowths of previous studies that we had done on the basic physiology of the parasite, and focussed particular attention on problems with an applied approach. Studies were done on the in vitro culture of a the sporogonic stages, with the aim of culturing sporozoites in vitro, b the exoerythrocyticstages, with the aim of testing potential prophylactic drugs in vitro, and c the erythrocytic stages, with the aim of testing potential suppressive antimalarials that act by inhibiting merozoite invasion of red cells.
