Chmi

 

a group of archaeological remains dating from the Bronze Age, the early Iron Age, and the late Middle Ages, located near the settlement of Chmi on the left bank of the Terek River, 22 km south of the city of Ordzhonikidze. Among the finds was a large burial ground from the sixth to ninth centuries belonging to the ancestors of the Ossetians—the Alani. The site was excavated beginning in 1882 by various archaeologists, including D. Ia. Samokvasov. The catacomb burials yielded weapons (swords, axes, arrows, and chain mails), gold, silver, and bronze ornaments, Byzantine and Arabic coins, beads, and clay and glass vessels. The burial inventory at Chmi is similar to that of other Alani burial grounds (seeSALTOVO-MAIATSKOE CULTURE) and reflects the process of social differentiation among the Alani.

Soon after the debut of CHMI, a second mosquito-biting-humans method was developed, in which volunteers were exposed to hundreds or even thousands of bites from mosquitoes infected with attenuated parasites.
Every aspect of producing infected mosquitoes, from obtaining enough blood and serum to rearing enough mosquitoes to having the tools and infrastructure to safely handle so many infectious mosquitoes, was reexamined and retooled to meet the needs of CHMI.
Exponentially greater numbers of mosquitoes are prepared for QA/QC and to ensure mosquito availability is not a limiting factor for CHMI success.
