Overall, regardless of the different plasmodial
species, parasitemia was significantly higher in true positives than in false negatives diagnosed by RDT (p = 2.6 x [10.sup.-8]).
By the 1960 meeting, the organism had been provisionally identified by its plasmodial
stage as a haplosporidan, but the lack of a spore stage delayed species designation and the parasite came to be known as MSX for "Multinucleated sphere unknown." In 1966, the organism was officially described and named Minchinia nelsoni (Haskin et al.
La infeccion plasmodial
mixta (IPMx) es la presencia de formas sexuales o asexuales de dos o mas especies simultaneas de Plasmodium spp.

The presence of asymptomatic plasmodial
infections in Colombia has been explored in few studies, most of them conducted in Tierralta, Buenaventura, and Tumaco [19, 2225].
species were also confused in these two sites and parasite density estimation was largely different from the expert's assessment.
PCR test for the detection and differentiation of malaria parasites requires more time and cost yet it has been shown to be a more sensitive assay with the ability to differentiate plasmodial
species and detect mixed infections.

(26) Actomyosin is extracted by homogenizing Physarum plasmodial
cells in a high-salt buffer (pH 7.8-8.0) containing EGTA, followed by the removal of cell debris and slime by centrifugation at 50,000 x g for 30min (Steps 1 and 2).
Although rodents do not produce exactly the signs and symptoms observed in the human plasmodial
infection (Pedroni et al., 2006) they however, have been reported to produce disease features similar to those of human plasmodial
infection with P.
