Abstract

In order to obtain an overview on the recent situation of mosquito-borne parasitic infections, malaria and bancroftian filariosis, in Oriental Mindoro (Philippines), a sero-epidemiological study was carried out with sera obtained from 163 patients attending the Provincial Hospital in Calapan. Sera were examined on the prevalence of specific antibodies against Plasmodium and filarial antigens using an indirect immunofluorescence test (IIFT) with Plasmodium falciparum-antigen on one hand and an enzyme-linked immunoabsorbent assay (ELISA) with Dipetalonema viteae-antigen on the other. Seven out of 164 sera were positive in the P. falcifarum-IIFT, 30 sera showed positive reactions in Dipetalonema viteae-ELISA. A list comprising all species of Culicidae occurring in Mindoro (including those species acting as vectors of infectious diseases) is presented.
