Preventing malaria: To take Lariam or not?
December 27, 1999 Web posted at: 9:49 AM EST (1449 GMT) In this story: Safe and effective Use with caution RELATEDS By Kathleen Doheny (WebMD) Chills, malaise and headache could signal the flu. But in some parts of the world, those symptoms bringing with them the possibility of kidney failure, coma and even death usually mean one thing: malaria. No vaccine for malaria is on the market yet, so people traveling to high-risk areas must make do with taking whatever precautions they can like wearing long sleeves and long pants to guard against mosquito bites, a common route of infection. Travelers are also usually advised to take antimalarial drugs such as chloroquine, just in case. But some strains of the parasite Plasmodium falciparum, which causes the most serious form of malaria, have grown resistant to chloroquine. In recent years, one antimalarial drug, mefloquine, sold under the brand name of Lariam, has increasingly been prescribed.

Relapsing Malaria
Symptoms may develop many months after travel
Although uncommon, it is possible to develop a relapsing type of malaria months to even years after traveling to a malaria infected country, even if you were taking the appropriate malaria medications to prevent the illness. Any returning traveler who develops a fever that lasts more than a few days requires prompt medical attention to screen for a malaria infection. While malaria medications such as chloroquine, doxycycline, or mefloquine (Lariam) can prevent symptoms of acute malaria from developing by suppressing the infection in the bloodstream, they do not prevent relapses of infection caused by certain strains of the parasite that have a persistent liver phase. Fortunately, the most common type of malaria is the

Located in pristine surroundings, the tranquility and splendour of Kariega Game Reserve , in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, is beyond doubt awesome.
Sanctuary to abundant game and wildlife such as lion, elephant, leopard, rhino, hippo, giraffe, zebra, eland, wildebeest, waterbuck and a variety of antelope, as well as a myriad of bird species, including nesting Martial, Crowned and Fish Eagles, this 5000 hectare private game reserve is a must, for those seeking the retreat and the thrill of the great outdoors and an African Safari vacation of a lifetime.
Set high above the spectacular Kariega River Valley , you cannot get closer to nature than in this wondrous African wilderness, in the heart of the 1820 Settler Country, with its rich historical heritage. The golden beaches of Kenton-on-Sea are less than 15 minutes away.

KÖSTER and GUDRUN GUT stepped from the smoldering ashes of their previous band MANIA D shouldering the yoke of a feverish new project they called malaria!.
"Malaria!" in April that year, the fever spread.
The band filled out to include MANON P. DUURSMA, NL ("O.U.T." an early Nina Hagen project), CHRISTINE HAHN, USA (Static, Glen Branca) and SUSANNE KUHNKE, BRD (Die Haut) absorbing their diverse backgrounds and personalities and grew.
A first European tour followed during which they appeared on a John Peel session for the BBC and later recorded the single "How do you like my new dog?" for the Belgium label Les Disques du Crepuscule.
Malaria toured the US next appearing with The Birthday Party, John Cale, and one unforgettable gig together with Nina Hagen in New York`s infamous Studio 54 night club. This tour was the first that promoted New German Music in the United States. Meanwhile Malaria recorded the 12" "New York Passage (Your turn to run)" for Cachalot records which went on to reach the independent top 10 in the U.S. as well as in Europe.
During another tour of Europe the band gave birth to "White Water" a 12" long player including "Kaltes Klares Wasser"

WHO finds TB, malaria return as killer diseases
DHAKA, Bangladesh (Reuters) Tuberculosis and malaria, once believed under control, are killing millions of people in Southeast Asian countries, a World Health Organization (WHO) official said Monday. "TB and Malaria, which were once considered to have been brought under control, are (now) rampant ... in developing countries and specifically in our region," Dr Uton Muchtar Rafei, WHO regional director in Southeast Asia, told a Dhaka health conference.

Malaria kills over a million people a year and is second only to tuberculosis in its impact on world health.
The parasitic disease is present in 90 countries and infects one in 10 of the world's population - mainly people living in Africa, India, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Colombia and the Solomon Islands. There are four main types of malaria, all spread via moquitoes. Ninety per cent of all malaria cases are in sub-Saharan Africa where it is the main cause of death and a major threat to child health. Worldwide, a child dies of malaria every 30 seconds. Pregnant women are also particularly vulnerable to the disease, which is curable if diagnosed early. The economic impact of the disease is immense, causing many lost days of work and loss of tourism and investment. What are the symptoms? Most people survive a bout of malaria after a 10-20 day illness, but it is important to spot the symptoms early. The first is high fever, followed a few hours later by chills. Two to four days later, this cycle is repeated. The most serious forms of the disease can affect the kidneys and brain and can cause anaemia, coma and death.

Malaria kills a child every 40 seconds
New ways of tackling malaria - the infection which kills a million people a year - are likely to be developed as a result of a new scientific milestone. A hundred years after the discovery that mosquitoes transmit the malaria parasite, the complete genetic codes of both the human malaria parasite and the mosquito that spreads it have been deciphered by an international team.
Knowing the mosquito genome may help researchers identify genes involved in the insect's ability to host the parasite
Don Kennedy, Science "It will be a little while before the knowledge provided by the genome projects is translated into practical tools but this will happen and malaria will finally be brought under control," commented Professor Brian Greenwood, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK. "Current attempts to control malaria with drugs and insecticides are in danger of failing because of the problems of resistance and there is no immediate prospect of a vaccine.

La malaria da falciparum, se non trattata in tempo, può determinare insufficienza renale, coma e morte. Il rischio
La Malaria
E' una malattia causata da protozoi del genere Plasmodium.
I principali Plasmodi sono: Pl. falciparum, Pl. vivax, Pl. ovale, Pl. malariae.
Tali protozoi vengono trasmessi da malato a sano attraverso la puntura della femmina di zanzare del genere Anofele. A volte la trasmissione si verifica con la trasfusione di sangue e, occasionalmente, da madre a feto durante la gravidanza. I sintomi della malattia sono molto variabili: essi dipendono dal Plasmodio responsabile (la forma più grave è la malaria da falciparum) e dalle condizioni del soggetto. In genere è presente febbre, a volte preceduta da brividi, mal di testa, dolori muscolari e simil-influenzali; a volte si aggiunge anemia ed ittero . I sintomi però possono essere molto lievi e non destare apprensione nel viaggiatore. Gli episodi febbrili si ripetono a vari intervalli. Le recidive si possono verificare anche dopo anni dall'infezione primaria. La malaria da falciparum, se non trattata in tempo, può determinare insufficienza renale, coma e morte. Il rischio di contrarre la malaria è molto variabile in relazione al Paese a rischio che si visita, all'area (urbana o rurale) in cui si soggiorna, alle condizioni degli ambienti in cui si vive. La gravità della malattia è in relazione al Plasmodio responsabile (

Prevention: You cannot depend on medications alone to prevent malaria so avoidance of bites is the best plan. Consistent use of the measures below will also prevent other mosquito spread diseases particularly dengue (A daytime biting mosquito disease), as well as other insect or fly spread diseases. Early diagnosis and treatment of malaria
Since few can escape mosquito bites during their travel and no preventative drugs are completely effective we need to accept the fact that you may contract malaria. Hence early diagnosis and treatment is essential.
Any fever occurring whilst away or after return from a malarious area, even if still taking preventative drugs, may be due to malaria, and you should consult a doctor, tell the doctor where you have been, voice your suspicion of malaria, and ask for a blood film to be done. You should do so within 48 hours of onset of fever, or earlier if you are very unwell.
(The very dangerous falciparum malaria usually occur within 3 months of return, but may be longer) Minimisation of exposure to mosquitoes
Stringent measures to prevent mosquito contact reduce the risk of contracting malaria by ten fold.
