surveys of simian malaria in japan.the survey of simian malaria in japan which had been conducted since 1965 showed that no japanese monkeys (macaca fuscata fuscata and macaca fuscata yakui) were infected with malaria parasites. most interestingly, however, babesia sp. was found in 4 (4.3%) of 93 macaca fuscata yakui which had been reared in a monkey park. as for the monkeys imported from abroad, plasmodium was only found in macaca irus from southeast asia, namely, p. inui (14.1-25.0%), p. cynomologi (0.6, 3.2%) and p. coatneyi ( ...1979116437
the prevalence of hepatocystis kochi in african green monkeys.the prevalence of hepatocystis kochi was studied in 178 african green monkeys from kenya and 61 from ethiopia. examinations of blood smears for gametocytes and examinations of the livers for merocysts were performed to determine the presence of infection in these animals. the overall prevalence of infection was 29%. no significant difference in infection rate was found between monkeys from the different geographic areas or between males and females.1978417213

entopolypoides macaci mayer, 1934 in the african baboon (papio cynocephalus l. 1766).entopolypoides maaci occurs in different populations of papio cynocephalus in kenya, but not in the same host with hepatocystis kochi. parasitemia may be greatly enhanced by splenectomy, but there is little effect on the host in spite of substantial alteration in hemoglobin and rbc counts, and transferability to other primates is erratic. descriptions are presented for differentiation of e. macaci from h. kochi.1975804557
