“The awkward fact with which US policy wrestles is that

People flee the world’s Haitis for a combination of motives.

All are deserving of some compassion but how much?”

Newsweek, Dec. 4 1991

“Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me”

Inscribed at base of Statue of Liberty, by Emma Lazarus

As you know

in the developing world treatable

infectious diseases remain big killers

Leading causes of death in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia for persons age

0-44 (World Health Organization)


Slide3 l.jpg

Now it’s time to look at number 3:

Malaria

Leading causes of death in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia for persons age

0-44 (World Health Organization)


Slide4 l.jpg

That’s right:

300 million new cases per year

making it the most prevalent serious infectious disease!

Slide5 l.jpg

  • 2.1 billion people live in MALARIOUS areas


Slide6 l.jpg

  • Like HIV and TB, malaria is

  • unequally distributed, even in the tropics


Slide7 l.jpg

  • In areas of Africa with high transmission

  • there are 2700 deaths per day = 2 per minute

It’s especially hard on kids


Slide9 l.jpg

It’s especially hard on kids

75% of the deaths are among African children

What is malaria l.jpg

What Is malaria?

  • A mosquito-borne infectious disease caused by Protozoan parasites of the genus Plasmodium


What is malaria12 l.jpg

What Is malaria?

  • Transmitted only by Anopheles Mosquitoes

    (>60 species!)

What Is malaria?

  • The Disease can be Acute or Chronic


Acute symptoms l.jpg

Acute Symptoms

  • Classical features include cyclic symptoms

    • Cold stage: chills and shaking

    • Hot stage: fever, headache, vomiting, seizures in children

    • Sweating stage: weakness

    • Feel well for period of time, then cycle repeats itself

In fact it is several different diseases l.jpg

Each disease has a distinct course l.jpg

Each disease has a distinct course


Each disease has a distinct course18 l.jpg

Each disease has a distinct course

“Tertian Malaria”

(P.falciparum, P.ovale and P.vivax)

fever occurs every third day.

“Quartan Malaria”

(P. malariae)

fever occurs every fourth day.

Each disease has a distinct course19 l.jpg

Each disease has a distinct course

P.ovale and P.vivax

can cause chronic malaria,

reappearing after months or years

due to latent parasites in liver

Malaria damages the body in a number of ways l.jpg

Malaria damages the bodyin a number of ways

  • Red blood cell destruction -> anemia

  • Waves of parasites bursting red blood cells

    Lead to classic cycles of fever and chills


Malaria damages the body in a number of ways25 l.jpg

Malaria damages the bodyin a number of ways

  • Changes adhesive properties of infected

    Red blood cells -> blocking blood vessels leading to Tissue hypoxia


Malaria damages the body in a number of ways26 l.jpg

Malaria damages the bodyin a number of ways

  • If this happens in brain it is cerebral malaria

    which is often fatal

    Blocking blood

    vessels can also

    cause kidney failure

Malaria damages the bodyin a number of ways

In severe cases 20% of patients can die,

even with the best care

DIAGNOSIS

  • Gold standard: Multiple thick and thin smears


Malaria is not currently a serious threat in the us l.jpg

Malaria is not currently a serious threat in the US

  • 1300 cases in US per year

  • Essentially all “imported”

  • Also transfusion related malaria

Slide38 l.jpg

Let step back and lookat the parasites that cause malaria


Slide39 l.jpg

It was discovered more than 100 years ago

A French army doctor in Algeria observed parasites inside red blood cells of malaria patients and proposed for the first time that a protozoan caused disease

So just who

is this

Plasmodium?

www.columbia.edu/itc/hs/medical/pathophys/parasitology/2006/PAR-05Color .pdf


Slide42 l.jpg

It’s not a

bacterium or

virus but a

eukaryote

like us

www.columbia.edu/itc/hs/medical/pathophys/parasitology/2006/PAR-05Color .pdf


Slide43 l.jpg

However,

unlike us

it lives a

solitary life

as a single

cell

Slide51 l.jpg

Consistent with this,

we now know Plasmodium

and its relatives have a

remnant of the chloroplast

called the apicoplast

which may help it digest

heme and other things

it harvests from red blood cells

Consistent with this,

we now know Plasmodium

and its relatives have a

remnant of the chloroplast

called the apicoplast

which may help it digest

heme and other things

It harvests from red blood cells

We don’t have this sort of organelle

How might we use that fact??!


Slide53 l.jpg

Plasmodium and its relatives

also have a specialized

Structure at one end of the cell

Involved in invading other cells

Plasmodium’s closer relatives

Include parasites causing

Babesiosis, Toxoplasmosis,

And Cryptosporidiosis

Plasmodium has a wildly complex life cycle

Slide60 l.jpg

Now we get to the troublesome stage

Cycles of replication inside red blood cells

Lead to cycles of fever and chills

And aggregated blood cells block blood vessels

We also need to get back to the next mosquito to complete the cycle
