Malaria is endemic over a wide area of the earth's surface. Although popularly associated with tropical or subtropical countries, it occurs as far north as the south of Sweden and Lake Ladoga in Russia and as far south as Bechuanaland, Swaziland and Natal in South Africa and the Argentine in South America. Though most frequent in low-lying districts it may be found at altitudes as great as 6000–9000 ft.

, At present at least, quinine cannot be produced synthetically. Yet it is estimated that some 800 million persons are attacked every year in the tropics by malaria, and according to Sir Ronald Ross

The Action of Plasmoquine on Mosquito-induced Malaria of Birds

The experiments described show that plasmoquine is very effective in preventing or delaying attacks of malaria in birds infected with P. relictum by direct blood inoculation, but has little or no

The Growth and Sporulation of the Benign and Malignant Tertian Malarial Parasites in the Culture Tube and in the Human Host.

Researches on the cultivation of the parasites of malaria in Liverpool were commenced some time ago at my suggestion by Dr. Sinton, and then, with better success, by Drs. J. G. Thomson and McLellan,

New Knowledge of the Life-Cycle of Malaria Parasites

An interesting result is focused on the malaria parasite of the domestic fowl, which Prof. Brumpt found and described in 1935 and gave the name Plasmodium gallinaceum.

Susceptibility of English Culex pipiens L. to Infection with Bird Malaria

In the course of the experiments 393 mosquitoes gorged on birds heavily infected with malaria (Plasmodium relictum, Grassi and Feletti) and the infected mosquitoes readily transmitted the malaria parasite to healthy canaries.

The Identification of the Avian Malarias

Summary The different species of malaria for which the evidence seems reasonably good have been classified according to their morphological characteristics and their behavior in the canary so that

How Many Species of Avian Malaria Parasites Are There?1

Since the discovery of a number of avian malaria parasites forming elongate gametocytes, often closely resembling Haemoproteus, it is very likely that in many cases these two types of blood protozoa were mistaken one for the other—and that they still are.

The duration of Plasmodium relictum infection in canaries

Experiments upon the duration of chronic infections of Plasmodium relictum in canaries prove that parasites may persist in the peripheral blood, as ordinary schizogonic stages, up to 8 years and 3


It was found that with mixed malaria infections in the same experimental animal sulfanilamide eradicates a virulent P. knowlesi infection, leaving the animal with a milder chronic P. inui infection.

Effect of Atebrine on Avian Malarias.∗

The purpose has been to discover whether clearly marked specific differences, such as those already demonstrated by the author 2, 3, 4 for plasmochin and quinine in the case of these 3 species and 2 others could be demonstrated for this drug also, and to determine as accurately as possible how the latter compared in effectiveness withQuinine and plasmchin.
