Literary evidence for malaria infection dates back to the early Greek period when Hippocrates described the typical undulating fever (1), highly suggestive of plasmodial
Sperm develop as disc-shaped, plasmodial
clones (=sperm morulne) 30-40 [micro]m in diameter consisting of 50-70 cells interconnected to a central, anucleate cytophore whose origin is unknown (Fig.
Since their amount and dimensions were not so obvious as in secretory tapeta, Tiwari and Gunning (1986b: 112) suggest "that in the plasmodial
tapetum the machinery for transferring tapetally-synthesized sporopollenin to the spore-wall is efficient enough to limit the extent of formation of orbicules as by-products.
The success of the parasite approach was, however, hindered by the advent and rapid spread of drug-resistant plasmodial
strains worldwide, thus, vector control remains the only viable approach to reducing malaria burden in the country (4).
En Turbo, en adultos con malaria por P, vivax no complicada, hallamos 8% con plaquetopenia (40) y en otros con malaria falciparum o vivax no complicada encontramos 71% con esta alteracion, sin diferencia por especie plasmodial
y estadisticamente mas frecuente en hombres.
Placental parasitemia was defined as any plasmodial
asexual form detected on a thick film.
Earlier investigations on Earth had shown that the effects of rapidly changing temperature (14 [degrees] to 30 [degrees] C at intervals of 2 [degrees] per minute or so) on plasmodial
contraction were completely reversible when contraction frequency was at least between 10 [degrees] and 28 [degrees] C (Wohlfarth-Bottermann, 1977).
In view of mixed plasmodial
infection, treatment was started with oral chloroquine (IPCA Laboratories, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India) 10 mg base/kg followed by 5 mg of base/kg at 12, 24 and 36 h, oral primaquine (Nestor Pharmaceuticals, Goa, India) 0.
Temporal regulation of plasmodial
genes may be important for protein-targeting in cells.
In addition, the compounds were also tested against two elongation enzymes from the plasmodial
FAS-II system, [beta]-ketoacyl-ACP reductase (PfFabG) and [beta]-hydroxyacyl-ACP deydratase (PfFabZ).
Though enough plasmodial
antigen circulate in the blood during acute stage of the disease, short duration of the disease process may not allow enough time for the development of appropriate antibodies for formation of circulating immune complexes of the right structure to be deposited in the kidney.
PCR should be accompanied by serologic tests and the elimination of actual or possible plasmodial
infection in the blood donor.
