    What is Malaria?
    Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease that causes over 2.7 million deaths per year according to estimates by the World Health Organization. Scientists in the Life Sciences Division and the Center for X-Ray Optics (CXRO) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are working with the newly developed x-ray microscope at the Advanced Light Source to study this disease. Malaria: A Mosquito-Borne Disease of the Blood Malaria is a potentially fatal blood disease caused by a parasite that is transmitted to human and animal hosts by the Anopheles mosquito. The human parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, is dangerous not only be cause it digests the red blood cell's hemoglobin, but also because it changes the adhesive properties of the cell it inhabits. This change in turn causes the cell to stick to the walls of blood vessels. It becomes especially dangerous when the infected blood cells stick to the capillaries in the brain, obstructing blood flow, a condition called cerebral malaria. Scientists using the x-ray microscope are hoping to learn more about the how the parasite infects and disrupts the blood cells and the blood vessels of an infected host.

    Malaria researchers take closer look at pathogen inside red blood cell
    October 27, 1995
    By Lynn Yarris, The Advanced Light Source is providing a revealing look at one of the oldest and most persistent of all human diseases malaria. Cathie Magowan, a parasitologist in the Life Sciences Division (LSD), is using the x-ray microscopy beamline at the ALS to obtain never before seen views of the malarial parasite inside a red blood cell. According to the World Health Organization, each year 300 to 500 million people living in the tropics and subtropics become infected with malaria, suffering burning fever and severe pain. Nearly three million mostly children die. Medical researchers have been unable to stamp out a scourge described in 4 B.C. by Hippocrates, Magowan says, because the parasite's complex life-cycle makes it an extremely tough opponent. Malaria is caused by the plasmodium parasite, which is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected female anopheles mosquito. The parasite enters the bloodstream and travels straight to the liver, where it is safe from any counteraction. "When the parasite is introduced into the bloodstream, there is less than 30 minutes of vulnerability before it gets into the liver," says Magowan, who has been studying

    A child with early symptoms of malaria may be irritable and drowsy, with poor appetite and trouble sleeping. These symptoms rapid breathing.

    Parents Infections Parasitic Infections (Worms, Lice, etc.)
    Signs and Symptoms:
    A child with early symptoms of malaria may be irritable and drowsy, with poor appetite and trouble sleeping. These symptoms are usually followed by chills, then a fever with rapid breathing. The fever may either gradually increase over one to two days or may rise very suddenly to a high level of 105 degrees Fahrenheit (40.6 degrees Celsius) or above. Then, as fever ends and body temperature quickly returns to normal, the child has an intense episode of sweating. The same pattern of symptoms - chills, fever, sweating - may repeat at intervals of two or three days, depending on which particular species of malaria parasite is causing the infection. Other symptoms of malaria include headache, nausea, aches and pains all over the body (especially the back and abdomen), and an abnormally large spleen. When malaria affects the brain, a child may have convulsions or lose consciousness. If malaria affects the kidneys, the amount of urine produced by the child may be abnormally low. In falciparum malaria, the episode of fever and chills is especially intense, and this variety may be fatal in about 20% of cases.

    Malaria kills roughly twice as many people worldwide as AIDS, drugs no longer work against some strains, and mosquitoes in diverse parts of the United States now carry the disease. Why aren't we doing more to fight it?
    by Ellen Ruppel Shell

    EPENDING on one's perspective, the struggle to gain dominion over malaria can be seen either as a primer of the possible in infectious-disease control or as classic tragedy. All but obliterated in the developed world half a century ago, and suppressed in the Third World in the 1950s and 1960s, malaria has since returned in full force to North Africa, India, Southeast Asia, China, South America, and the Caribbean. Worldwide incidence of the disease has quadrupled in the past five years, and resistance to available drugs for prevention and treatment is growing rapidly. Nearly 40 percent of the world's population lives in regions where malaria is endemic, and millions more live in areas that are encountering the disease for the first time in decades. Europe has had outbreaks, and in the United States 1,000 to 1,200 cases annually have been reported in recent years. But the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that cases reported in the United States represent only about half the actual incidence. Every year approximately seven million American tourists and business people spend time in regions where malaria is endemic, as do military personnel and foreign visitors to the United States, and it is likely that thousands arrive here with malaria parasites in their bodies. As a consequence

    Malaria kills three children per minute. This amounts to a quiet global catastrophe. Quiet, because it has been taking place for millennia and become a fact of everyday life. Its impact is especially felt in Africa. In Mozambique, which I recently visited, malaria patients occupy 40% of the nation's hospital beds. And these are just the people fortunate enough to make it to a health centre. As the G8 countries continue to deliberate a new blueprint for lifting African nations out of poverty, and as the 14th international Aids conference gets under way in Barcelona today, leaders must look beyond the standard fare of discussions on increased aid and trade issues. They must also seriously consider the impact that infectious diseases like malaria, Aids and tuberculosis have on African economies.

    General Concepts
    Clinical Manifestations
    Initially patients have fever, chills, sweating, headache, weakness, and other symptoms mimicking a "viral syndrome." Later, severe disease may develop, with an abnormal level of consciousness, severe anemia, renal failure, and multisystem failure.
    Plasmodia are protozoa. Only the species Plasmodium falciparum P vivax P malariae, and P ovale are usually infectious for humans. Of these, P falciparum is the most dangerous.
    Structure and Life Cycle
    In nature, uninucleate sporozoites in the salivary glands of infected mosquitoes are injected into a human host when the mosquito feeds. The sporozoites rapidly invade liver parenchymal cells, where they mature into liverstage schizonts, which burst to release 2,000 to 40,000 uninucleate merozoites. In P vivax and P ovale infections, maturation of the schizont may be delayed for 1 to 2 years. Each merozoite can infect a red blood cell. Within the red cell, the merozoite matures either into a uninucleate gametocyte-the sexual stage, infectious for Anopheles mosquitoes-or, over 48 to 72 hours, into an erythrocyticstage schizont containing 10 to 36 merozoites. Rupture of the schizont releases these merozoites, which infect other red cells. If a vector mosquito ingests gametocytes, the gametocytes develop in the mosquito gut to gametes, which undergo fertilization and mature in 2 to 3 weeks to sporozoites.

    Know before you go!
    Infectious diseases not necessarily common in Canada can occur and may even be widespread in other countries. Standards of hygiene and medical care may differ from those at home. Before departure, you should learn about the health conditions in the country or countries you plan to visit, your own risk of disease and the steps you can take to prevent illness. The risk is yours
    Your risk of acquiring a disease depends on several factors. They include: your age, gender, immunization status and current state of health; your itinerary, duration and style of travel (e.g., first class, adventure) and anticipated travel activities (e.g., animal contact, exposure to fresh water, sexual contact); as well as the local disease situation. Risk assessment consultation
    Health Canada strongly recommends that your travel plans include contacting a travel medicine clinic or physician 6 to 8 weeks before departure. Based on your individual risk assessment, a health care professional can determine your need for immunizations and/or preventive medication (prophylaxis) and advise you on precautions to avoid disease. We can help you locate a travel medicine clinic closest to your home.
