This report describes a microtiter system that should be useful for making preliminary determinations of which components of plasmodia may be useful as vaccines. The system is based on antigenmediated blockage of inhibition of plasmodial growth in culture by immune serum. The necessity for a quantitative approach to the analysis is emphasized if reproducible results are to be obtained.
