    Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites found in mosquitoes that carry an infectious disease. It is spread from the saliva through a bite of an infected female mosquito. Only female mosquitoes feed on blood, so this is why females are the carriers and spreaders of Malaria. Once you are bitten by an infected female mosquito then it releases the parasite into your blood where it moves to your liver and expands. This causes your liver to burst sending the infection back to your blood stream spreading

    The most common strain of malaria, falciparum malaria, must be treated in the hospital since it is considered a medical emergency. The mode of treatment including the type of drugs administered depends on the severity of the disease and the place in which the malaria was contracted. The basic treatment for all strains of malaria (except falciparum) is normally chloroquine, which is administered for 3 days by mouth. Since most falciparum strains are resistant to chloroquine, a combination of tetracycline

    Malaria (also called biduoterian fever, blackwater fever, falciparum malaria, plasmodium, Quartan malaria, and tertian malaria) is one of the most infectious and most common diseases in the world. This serious, sometimes-fatal disease is caused by a parasite that is carried by a certain species of mosquito called the Anopheles. It claims more lives every year than any other transmissible disease except tuberculosis. Every year, five hundred million adults and children (around nine percent of the

    Malaria There are a great number of diseases that are endemic in many of the poorer, developing nations due to the lack of sanitation and disease prevention programs in these areas. The steady increase of malaria epidemics in many of the African countries is a point of great concern, because this continent is home to 90% of the world’s total cases of this particular disease. Malaria gets its name from “mal aria,” meaning bad air, because patients used to blame the sudden illness on the poor

    Hispaniola is the only malaria endemic island in the Caribbean, with Haiti attributed most of the malaria cases. Tamar Carter has analyzed the genetics of both the human host and the parasite of malaria, specifically Plasmodium falciparum, in order to determine the impacts of malaria on Haitian population health. She has studied the genetic adaptations to malaria found in Haiti, two possible add-on techniques for RBCD screening, and the impacts of human intervention. Carter has determined poverty
