Part Description

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
