Sequencing was separated by chromosome among three centers: The project work in the USA was funded by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund , the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases , and the US Department of Defense. The project work in the UK was funded by The Wellcome Trust All of the P. falciparum genome sequence data generated within the Malaria Genome Consortium is available at PlasmoDB .

Extractions: Roll Back Malaria Department The Roll Back Malaria Partnership is a global initiative made up of more than 90 partners whose goal is to halve the burden of malaria by 2010. RBM was launched in 1998 by the World Health Organization, UNICEF, UNDP and the World Bank to provide a coordinated international approach to fighting malaria. The RBM Partnership website features the global strategy and programmatic approaches of the Partnership, issues surrounding country-level implementation of malaria control, malaria news and events, and information about the structure and operations of the Partnership, including thematic Working Groups. The WHO Roll Back Malaria Department is responsible for malaria policy and strategy formulation, operations support and capacity development, and coordination of WHO's global efforts to roll back malaria. The Department establishes and promotes based on evidence and expert consensus WHO policies, normative standards and guidelines for malaria prevention and control, including monitoring and evaluation.

Extractions: La malaria es por mucho la enfermedad parásita tropical más importante en el mundo, y la enfermedad contagiosa que más muertes causa a excepción de la tuberculosis. En muchos países desarrollados, y en África especialmente, la malaria cobra muchas vidas, costos médicos, y pérdidas en días de trabajo. Los parásitos se transmiten de persona a persona por el mosquito hembra anofeles. Los machos no transmiten la enfermedad ya que sólo se alimentan de los jugos de las plantas. Los parásitos se desarrollan en el intestino del mosquito y se comunica por la saliva del mosquito infectado cada vez que lleva a cabo un nuevo alimento de sangre. Entonces, los parásitos son transportados por la sangre al hígado de la víctima, donde invaden las células y se multiplican. La propagación de la enfermedad está ligada con la construcción de caminos, la minería, aserraderos y nuevos proyectos de agricultura e irrigación, especialmente en áreas de nuevo desarrollo como el Amazonas. En otras partes donde hay desintegración de servicios a la salud, conflictos armados y movimientos masivos de refugiados se empeora la situación de la malaria.

Extractions: Communicable Disease What is malaria? Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by any one of four different blood parasites, called Plasmodia. The disease is transmitted to people by the Anopheles mosquito. This disease is a leading cause of debilitating illness, with over 200 million cases each year from around the world. Almost all of the cases reported in New York State each year are acquired in foreign countries. However, a few locally acquired cases have occurred on Long Island and in Queens. Who gets malaria? Any person residing in or traveling to a country where malaria is prevalent is at risk for contracting the disease. Malaria is currently a problem in tropical or subtropical areas of Asia, Africa and Central and South America. Most black Africans show a natural resistance to some species of malaria. Otherwise, susceptibility to malaria is universal. How is malaria spread? Malaria is spread by the bite of an infected Anopheles mosquito. With certain malaria species, dormant forms can be produced which may cause relapses of malaria months to years later. Malaria may also be transmitted by transfusion of blood from infected people or by the use of contaminated needles or syringes. What are the symptoms of malaria?

Extractions: Overview This disease in humans results from infection with a protozoan blood parasite transmitted by a species of the mosquito genus Anopheles . The human clinical condition known as malaria is caused by infection with one of four species of the genus Plasmodium Plasmodium falciparum P. vivax P. malariae , and P. ovale . The first two are the most common and most important, and P. falciparum infection often can be fatal in the absence of treatment. Natural History The Plasmodium species are blood parasites, although some also invade liver cells where they lie dormant until later release brings a relapse with fevers associated with the destruction of red blood cells. The vector mosquitoes imbibe the parasites with the bloodmeal, and the sexual stages unite in the mosquito gut to create a stage which invades the gut wall and forms a cyst, which in turn releases many infective stages (sporozoites) which invade the salivary glands, and are injected into a new host when the mosquito feeds. The sporozoites invade liver cells and later developmental stages of the parasite invade red blood cells which they disrupt (causing fever), form sexual stages and the cycle is completed.

Time.com People Fortune EW InStyle Business 2.0 WASHINGTON (CNN) U.S. military officials at Guantanamo Bay are treating two detainees for malaria but said that none of the detainees has contracted tuberculosis. An initial chest X-ray of four detainees showed some indications of TB, but further testing indicated they were not ill, officials said. An additional detainee underwent surgery Wednesday for an infected wound, the officials said. A Navy mobile hospital at Camp X-Ray has been completed and is capable of treating 36 patients. There have been no serious security incidents, officials said. The disciplinary procedures for detainees begin with verbal commands from security guards, an official said. If that does not work, the detainee is shackled in his cell. If further measures are needed, they are taken to a separate isolated area. The next step is removal of privileges such as recreation time. A detainee recently spit at a guard and was taken to solitary confinement for one hour, officials said.
Extractions: The Malaria Clock: A Green Eco-Imperialist Legacy of Death In April 1972, after seven months of testimony, EPA Administrative Law Judge Edmund Sweeney stated that DDT is not a carcinogenic hazard to man. ... The uses of DDT under the regulations involved here do not have a deleterious effect on freshwater fish, estuarine organisms, wild birds, or other wildlife. ... The evidence in this proceeding supports the conclusion that there is a present need for the essential uses of DDT.* Two months later, EPA head [and Environmental Defense Fund member/fundraiser] William Ruckelshaus - who had never attended a single days session in the seven months of EPA hearings, and who admittedly had not even read the transcript of the hearings - overturned Judge Sweeneys decision. Ruckelshaus declared that DDT was a potential human carcinogen and banned it for virtually all uses.** Since Ruckelshaus arbitrarily and capriciously banned DDT, an estimated cases of malaria have caused immense suffering and poverty in the developing world.*** Of these largely avoidable cases

April 25 th is Africa Malaria Day, commemorating the African Summit on Roll Back Malaria in Abuja, Nigeria that took place 4 years ago. The Abuja Summit brought together 44 African leaders and donor organizations who committed to systems reform and a massive scaling-up of funds to fight malaria in Africa, and set five-year targets for reductions in malaria infections and deaths. With one year remaining to reach the 2005 targets, there is little to celebrate. Many African countries are still administering ineffective drugs, and less than 2% of African children are sleeping under ITNs.
