The issues of traditional treatment of malaria;

What are the traditional remedies of Malaria?

The medical treatment of malaria; the hope is based on the presence of antibodies in the red blood cells in the blood of carriers, but see also how to fight against malaria.

Traditional remedies

1.    Consistent treatment with quinine;
2.    Chloroquine or Nivaquine.

The Quinine

1.    Quinine comes from the bark of the cinchona, trees that are native to the Andes;
2.    Quinine has long been the most important medical cure of malaria;
3.    But three times daily intake obligatory were considered too difficult and annoying;
4.    For fifty years, it is almost replaced by synthetic molecules.

Chloroquine or Nivaquine

1.    A daily dose provides the same protection as quinine;
2.    Access is usually intermittent treated for five days with high dose and for a few weeks at a low dose;
3.    But unfortunately, it was reported in serious consequences effects and risks of high doses and coma.

Other medications

1.    Ammodiaquine or Flavoquine;
2.    Fansidar;
3.    The Quinimax;
4.    The Arcequinoforme and antifolates as Paludrine;
5.    Daraprim are risky as well;
6.    The Flavoquine available in pharmacies, especially in the African markets is sometimes misused by self-medication.

Random remedies

1.    The pseudo-effective preventive or curative of these drugs addictive dangerous because they must be taken regularly;
2.    So this is a random solution, since not only mosquitoes resistant to insecticides, but some strains of Plasmodium falciparum resistance to drugs;
3.    Regular intake of Nivaquine is no longer a guarantee against pernicious it claims to be fighting.

New hopes of modern medicine

1.    Vaccine extracts of Artemisia;
2.    And Alophandrine.

The vaccine

1.    In front to the relative poverty of the medicine against malaria, research scientists are working to develop a vaccine against malaria;
2.    The hope is based on the presence of antibodies in the red blood cells in the blood of carriers;
3.    But vaccinating against parasites whose forms are varied according to their development stages seems to be a difficult and daunting task;
4.    It is possible instead to tackle the parasites injected by the mosquitoes into the blood which will colonize the liver.

The Artemisia annua

1.    Chinese medicine has successfully isolated from Artemisia crystalline substance the artemisine as powerful as quinine, faster action and non-toxic.
2.     Its effectiveness exerts against parasites of malaria that are resistant to existing drugs;
3.    This product is a marvel in the fight against plasmodium falciparum.

The Alophandrine

1.    Drug developed by an American laboratory and marketed for a little time, especially in Africa under the name of Alphan;
2.    The Alophandrine has been successful in acute attacks, but the price is still very high.
