A geographic information system applied to a malaria field study in western Kenya

Hightower, AW, Ombok, M, Otieno, R, Odhiambo, R, Oloo, AJ, Lal, AA, Nahlen, BL, Hawley, WA
The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 58(3), 266-72. (1998-03)

This paper describes use of the global positioning system (GPS) in differential mode (DGPS) to obtain highly accurate longitudes, latitudes, and altitudes of 1,169 houses, 15 schools, 40 churches, four health care centers, 48 major mosquito breeding sites, 10 borehole wells, seven shopping areas, major roads, streams, the shore of Lake Victoria, an...

The potential for Anopheles egg survival in dry soil from larval development sites was investigated in western Kenya. A total of 230 dry soil samples collected in 1987, 1988 and 1989 yielded 126 first-instar Anopheles gambiae s.l. larvae from 2 to 5 days after flooding with water. These larvae were from dried animal hoofprints along streams (57.9%)...

Antibody responses to repetitive epitopes of the circumsporozoite protein, liver stage antigen-1, and merozoite surface protein-2 in infants residing in a Plasmodium falciparum-hyperendemic area of western Kenya. XIII. Asembo Bay Cohort Project

The present study was initiated to characterize antibody responses to repetitive epitopes of the circumsporozoite protein (CSP), liver stage antigen-1 (LSA-1), and merozoite surface protein-2 (MSP-2) of Plasmodium falciparum in infants residing in a P. falciparum-hyperendemic area of western Kenya. In this study, development and maintenance of thes...

Comparative determination of Plasmodium falciparum sporozoite rates in Afrotropical Anopheles from Kenya by dissection and ELISA

Adungo, N. I., Mahadevan, S., Mulaya, N. L., Situbi, A. P., Githure, J. I.
Ann Trop Med Parasitol 85(4), 387-94. (1991)

The Plasmodium falciparum rate was determined by microscopical examination of one salivary gland (three lobes) and by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of the other salivary gland in each of 1580 Anopheles mosquitoes collected from western Kenya during both the wet and dry seasons. The sporozoite rate in the wet season was much higher than ...

Detection of human antibodies against Plasmodium falciparum antigens in blood meals of anopheline mosquitoes

Contreras, C. E., Beier, J. C.
J Am Mosq Control Assoc 8(3), 252-5. (Sep 1992)

Human IgG antibodies against Plasmodium falciparum asexual stages, gametocytes and sporozoites were detected by indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) techniques in the blood meals of Anopheles gambiae s.l. from a malaria-endemic area of western Kenya. Field-collected mosquitoes, which had been stored dry for over 2 years, were screened first for huma...

Distribution, description, and local knowledge of larval habitats of Anopheles gambiae s.l. in a village in western Kenya

Mutuku, F. M., Alaii, J. A., Bayoh, M. N., Gimnig, J. E., Vulule, J. M., Walker, E. D., Kabiru, E., Hawley, W. A.
Am J Trop Med Hyg 74(1), 44-53. (2006)

A sampling census revealed 104 aquatic habitats of 6 types for Anopheles gambiae s.l. larvae in a village in western Kenya, namely burrow pits, drainage channels, livestock hoof prints, rain pools, tire tracks, and pools in streambeds. Most habitats were created by human activity and were highly clustered in dispersion pattern within the village la...
