DRAPER, C. C. et al. A parasitological and serological malária survey in Amazonas, 1971. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 1973, vol.7, n.4, pp.231-235. ISSN 0037-8682.

Thick blood films and malaria indirect fluorescent antibody test (P. falciparum and P. vivax) were done in four different regions in Amazonas. There was a very low prevalence of parasites anã the antibody rates suggest a small amount of transmission and that P. vivax was the predominant parasite. The calculation of probability of being infected per year was about 8% in Tefé. Coari, Colonia Fernanão Costa and Labrea and 0.8% in Anori.
