Abstract

In Malaysia, the study of blood parasites on non-human primates especially Plasmodium sp. and microfilaria was still lacking. This study aimed to detect the presence and calculate the prevalence of Plasmodium sp. and microfilaria. It was also to see the pattern of grouping the infected individuals based on locality, gender and species of non-human primate using cluster analysis. A total of 59 blood samples out of 191 samples from five states were positive with Plasmodium sp. and microfilaria. There was one sample being infected with both Plasmodium sp. and microfilaria. Both locality and species of nonhuman primates showed to be the factor of prevalence for both blood parasites. This study helped to reveal the infection of those blood parasites in non-human primate that may transmissible to human as they are zoonosis.
