    What part of the malaria life cycle does chloroquine target


    In the blood, successive broods of parasites grow inside the red cells and destroy them, releasing daughter parasites (“merozoites”) that continue the cycle by invading other red cells. The blood stage parasites are those that cause the symptoms of malaria.

    Anopheles mosquitoes, which able to feed on humans humans, and in which the parasites can complete the “invertebrate host” half of their life cycle. Humans. who can be bitten by Anopheles mosquitoes, and in whom the parasites can complete the “vertebrate host” half of their life cycle. Malaria parasites. The plasmodium life cycle seems like such a horrid thing to happen to people who do not have the knowledge and/or the means to prevent the whole life cycle from taking place. I hope and pray that everyone in Africa, and other poverty stricken places, get the education and treatment to stop preventable and curable diseases like Malaria. In this stage the parasite can remain dormant for months or several years. These two species of parasite can therefore initiate a cycle of asexual reproduction causing clinical symptoms in the absence of a new mosquito bite, giving P. vivax infection the name relapsing malaria.

    After 10-18 days, a form of the parasite called a sporozoite migrates to the mosquito’s salivary glands. When certain forms of blood stage parasites (gametocytes, which occur in male and female forms) are ingested during blood feeding by a female mosquito, they mate in the gut of the mosquito and begin a cycle of growth and multiplication in the mosquito.

    For example, chloroquine targets the blood stages of the life cycle whilst primaquine removes the dormant liver stages. Because of this, drugs are often used in combination with each other to make sure the malaria parasite is removed from all areas of the body. For example, primaquine can be used along with chloroquine to treat Plasmodium vivax. Both adults and children should take one dose of chloroquine per week starting at least 1 week before. traveling to the area where malaria transmission occurs. They should take one dose per week while there, and for 4 consecutive weeks after leaving. The weekly dosage for adults is 300mg base 500mg salt. Although mefloquine is the mainstay for chemoprophylaxis in travelers to most areas with chloroquine-resistant malaria, when isn't it used? -resistance to mefloquine has been detected in parts of Southeast Asia, and travels to that area are now being advised to take daily doxycycline or Malarone
