Sample text

The antigenic characteristics of the parasites upon which immunological differentiation of strains is based, are evidently firmly fixed and retained through an indefinite number of passages through the definitive and intermediate hosts’ (Boyd, 1940a). Huff, however, argued that with ‘parasites which are distinguishable only on immunological grounds . . whether they constitute separate races, possibly incapable of cross-breeding or whether they are simply manifestations of variations within a variety or species due to sexual reproduction can only be guessed at the present time .

The concept of multiple concurrent, superinfecting, interacting strains had implications for epidemiology and control as well as for clinical and immunological understanding. For an individual, the presence of ‘an unknown number of strains without any cross-immunity to speak of among them [implied that] only by chance is he infected twice in succession with the same kind of parasite, and his individual malaria season draws to a close only when he has solidified anew his resistance to the principal strains which are in the air around him every night.

Strain Theory of Malaria: The First 50 Years 19 Wilson (1936) would likely be astounded by the level of genetic diversity that is now known to occur within P. falciparum. Diversity is linked to levels of malaria endemicity, such that parasites from unrelated patients in Africa or New Guinea are likely to represent different strains whereas parasites from unrelated patients in South America have a higher chance of belonging to the same strain. Species-specific and strain-specific immunity is believed (although far from being formally demonstrated) to be due to (allelic) polymorphism of genes encoding the major surface proteins of each stage of the parasite, such that antibodies raised to one form of the protein bind less efficiently to heterologous forms present in other parasite species or strains.
