Modelling knowlesi malaria transmission in humans: Vector preference and host competence

Abstract:

Background: Plasmodium knowlesi, a malaria species that normally infects long-tailed macaques, was recently found to be prevalent in humans in Southeast Asia. While human host competency has been demonstrated experimentally, the extent to which the parasite can be transmitted from human back to mosquito vector in nature is unclear. Methods. Using a mathematical model, the influence of human host competency on disease transmission is assessed. Adapting a standard model for vector-borne disease...
