NotesC.A.Gerhardt. From Jaramillo-Arango's 1950 book, Conquest of Malaria: Gerhardt "first achieved direct transmission of malaria by the subcutaneous injection into a healthy individual of blood taken from a patient suffering with tertian fever. Some of the experiments Gerhardt performed on himself. Although at the time unaware of Laveran's discovery, with this experiment, so to say, Gerhardt corroborated the parasitical nature of the disease."
