Synopsis

With the mosquito as its vector, malaria has troubled humans throughout history. While kept under control in most of the developed world, it continues to ravage parts of Africa and Asia, where the majority of cases occur, and where the simple means of protection from the disease are out of reach for the much of the population. Caused by protozoan parasites from the genus Plasmodium, malaria is a chronic disease, plaguing sufferers for many years. This revised edition of ""Malaria"" contains new illustrations and up-to-date information on this largely preventable disease, including the latest outbreak statistics, recent diagnostic and treatment breakthroughs, the findings of recent vaccine trials, and an examination of the impact global climate change may have on malaria outbreak patterns. Chapters of this title include: On the Wings of Mosquitoes; The Origin, Evolution, and Ecology of Malaria; The Discovery of Plasmodium; Attempts at Malarial Control; Preventing Malaria; and, Malaria Now.
