Furthermore, it began to appear that ‘convalescents from artificially induced falciparum infections usually exhibit a distinct clinical tolerance when artificially reinoculated with a heterologous strain of this parasite, manifested by a shortened period of clinical activity .

A particular concern was that ‘returning soldiers with such infections may be responsible for the establishment in this country of epidemic or endemic foci for imported vivax strains’ (Watson, 1945).

But] the duration of the efficacy of the anti-parasitic element persists for a longer time than does the anti-toxic one’ (Sinton, 1940). As with ‘virulence’, and drug response, several authors asked whether antigenic features of a strain might change with time. Most concluded that, since observations ‘do not suggest that extensive sexual reproduction has altered the antigenic composition of one strain . . 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).
