Table 4 Differential susceptibility of An. albimanus and An. pseudopunctipennis mosquitoes to two related P. vivax genotypes

From: Plasmodium vivax CSP-Pvs25 variants from southern Mexico produce distinct patterns of infectivity for Anopheles albimanus versus An. pseudopunctipennis, in each case independent of geographical origin

P. vivax (cspVk/Pvs25-130) n Prop. infected Median oocyst number (IQR)
  An. albimanus
Vk210/Pvs25-B 466 0.075 7 (3–17)
Vk247/Pvs25-B 1542 0.132; P = 0.001 4 (1–14); P = 0.100
  An. pseudopunctipennis
Vk210/Pvs25-B 393 0.56 18 (7–39)
Vk247/Pvs25-B 979 0.784; P = 0.011 36 (16–62); P < 0.001
  1. Notes: The median number of oocysts was calculated only considering the infected mosquitoes. Statistical significance was estimated by using the Jackknife coefficient variance estimator at 95% confidence interval
  2. Abbreviations: n, total number of mosquitoes examined; Prop. proportion, IQR interquartile range
