LP14840-0   Plasmodium sp
A genus of coccidian protozoa that comprise the malaria parasites of mammals. Four species infect humans (although occasional infections with primate malarias may occur). These are PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM; PLASMODIUM MALARIAE; PLASMODIUM OVALE, and PLASMODIUM VIVAX. Species causing infection in vertebrates other than man include: PLASMODIUM BERGHEI; PLASMODIUM CHABAUDI; P. vinckei, and PLASMODIUM YOELII in rodents; P. brasilianum, PLASMODIUM CYNOMOLGI; and PLASMODIUM KNOWLESI in monkeys; and PLASMODIUM GALLINACEUM in chickens.

LP14840-0   Plasmodium sp
Plasmodium is a genus of parasitic protozoa. Infection by this parasite is known to cause malaria. The genus Plasmodium was discovered in 1885 by Marchiafava and Celli. Currently over 200 species of this genus are recognized and new species continue to be described.

Of over the 200 known species of Plasmodium, at least 10 species infect humans. Other species infect animals, including monkeys, rodents, birds, and reptiles. The parasite always has two hosts in its life cycle: a mosquito vector and a vertebrate host. Copyright Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License. See for details.

LP20149-8   Plasmodium
Malaria is a parasitic disease that is passed from one human to another by the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito with one of four protozoan parasites: Plasmodium falciparum, vivax, malariae or ovale. The parasites enter the bloodstream and infect red blood cells where they multiply and infect more red blood cells. Symptoms usually occur 10 days to 4 weeks after infection and include anemia, high fevers, shaking chills, muscle pain, and nausea. Antimalarial agents used to treat malaria include Quinine, Quinidine, Mefloquine, Chloroquine, and Hydroxychloroquine. The effectiveness of the agents depends on which phase or phases of the Plasmodium life cycle is interrupted. In most cases, treatment outcome is expected to be good except in cases of a p. falciparum infection. Adverse effects from antimalaria medications include vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, cardiac arrhythmias, EKG abnormalities, deafness, damage to liver and kidney and muscle weakness. Source: NMS labs
