Malaria is a fever disease caused by plasmodia, unicellular parasites. There exist five species which are pathogenic for humans and induce different forms of the disease: Plasmodium falciparum Malaria tropicaPlasmodium ovale and Plasmodium vivax Malaria tertianaPlasmodium malariae Malaria quartana and Plasmodium knowlesi — malarria species that was only recently recognized to be harmful for humans.

Here, the parasite subsequently proliferates asexually via different developmental stages. Through the bite of an infected mosquito, the parasite enters the human blood circulation and reaches the liver cells.

Within five to 18 days, depending on the respective species, the protozoon develops intracellularly into a schizozoite, a multinucleated cell which gradually fills up the host cell and finally dissociates into numerous cells called merozoites. Eventually, the host cell bursts and the merozoites are released and end up in the blood stream again, now attacking red blood cells. Within the erythrocytes, the parasite develops into new schizozoites.

With the destruction of the red blood cells, the resulting merozoites are released and infect more ada,ah see image. Those waves of erythrocyte destruction lead to the disease-characteristic fever teriana of the patients.

Approximately millions of them fall ill every year,people die, of whom most are children. As soon as a patient returns with an undefined fever disease from a stay in tropical regions, malaria is considered.

Diagnostic gold standard malarai the microscopic detection of plasmodia within blood samples of the individual. Experienced physicians may also differentiate the five species by means of their morphology.

However, the determination of specific antibodies may indicate a previous contact with the parasite or a chronic or kalaria infection. Thus, serological analyses may be of high importance in blood bank screening or in epidemiological studies.

If antibodies against one of these species are present within the serum, these will be detected with very high sensitivity. Your email address will not be published. Time limit is exhausted.
