The protozoan parasite Plasmodium falciparum is the causal agent of human malaria. This parasite has a very complex lifecycle, involving vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. Infective forms (sporozoites) are transmitted to the human host during the mosquito Anopheles' blood meal. Malaria is a devastating parasitic disease; it infects 300 More...
