1), as there is always a chance that localised breeding is temporarily taking place if the weather is suitable, and there is potential for propagated outbreaks if gametocyte carriers are present in the local community.
Asymptomatic cases provide a fundamental reservoir of parasites and they might become gametocyte carriers, contributing to the persistence of malaria transmission [13].
Thereby, the approach used during the last two to three decades to design a malaria vaccine has been based on identifying "subunits" of the parasite, such as complete antigens or their fragments, which have been mainly produced as synthetic peptides and recombinant proteins derived from sporozoite, merozoite, or gametocyte stages.

Gametocyte of Plasmodium falciparum was seen along with ring forms (double as well as single), which was suggestive of double infection (Plasmodium falciparum with Plasmodium vivax).
As a measure of transmission rates, peak gametocyte density was assayed.
