Disease due to Plasmodiidae

A protozoan disease caused in humans by four species of the PLASMODIUM genus: PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM; PLASMODIUM VIVAX; PLASMODIUM OVALE; and PLASMODIUM MALARIAE; and transmitted by the bite of an infected female mosquito of the genus ANOPHELES. Malaria is endemic in parts of Asia, Africa, Central and South America, Oceania, and certain Caribbean islands. It is characterized by extreme exhaustion associated with paroxysms of high FEVER; SWEATING; shaking CHILLS; and ANEMIA. Malaria in ANIMALS is caused by other species of plasmodia. [from MeSH]

Congenital rubella syndrome

A condition, whose clinical manifestations include intrauterine growth restriction, petechial rash, jaundice, generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, peripheral pulmonary stenosis, cataracts, and sensorineural deafness, that is caused by fetal exposure to the rubella virus during the first trimester of pregnancy.(NICHD) [from NCI]

Schizonticides

Substances that inhibit the SCHIZONTS stage of protozoa. There is particular interest in them as ANTIMALARIALS. [from MeSH]

Concept ID:
C1720748
Pharmacologic Substance
5.

Antimicrobial substance

Generically, any agent that destroys microbes. However, usage of the term is increasingly being confined to agents that prevent or reduce the transmission of SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES. [from MeSH]

Concept ID:
C1136254
Pharmacologic Substance
6.

Disease caused by parasite

Infections or infestations with PARASITES. They are often contracted through contact with an intermediate vector, but may occur as the result of direct exposure. [from MeSH]

Falciparum malaria

Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM. This is the severest form of malaria and is associated with the highest levels of parasites in the blood. This disease is characterized by irregularly recurring febrile paroxysms that in extreme cases occur with acute cerebral, renal, or gastrointestinal manifestations. [from MeSH]

Electrolyte

Substances that dissociate into two or more ions, to some extent, in water. Solutions of electrolytes thus conduct an electric current and can be decomposed by it (ELECTROLYSIS). (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed) [from MeSH]

Antiprotozoal agent

A pharmacological agent that can kill or prevent the reproduction of parasitic protozoans. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
1988
Concept ID:

Antimalarial agent

Agents used in the treatment of malaria. They are usually classified on the basis of their action against plasmodia at different stages in their life cycle in the human. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p1585) [from MeSH]
