Malaria-resistant red blood cells for malaria patients?
Infectious disease docs, Do you recommend transfusion / exchange transfusion of malaria-resistant RBCs for Plasmodium falciparum malaria patients (especially now that parasites are becoming drug-resistant)? Some background for those unfamiliar with malaria: Type O RBCs (universal donor RBCs) are malaria-resistant along with sickle trait RBCs and many others. Evolution selected for type O RBCs and sickle cell trait RBCs due to a survival advantage with Pf malaria. These RBCs are found... Malaria-resistant red blood cells for malaria patients?

Malaria Chemoprophylaxis Mode of Action
Hi, Apologies if this is a dumb question, but 1) What is the mode of operation of malaria chemoprophlaxis (it seems to me, the drugs are the same as those used to treat malaria, so is the mechanism of action just to have your body filled with drugs which will destroy any plasmodium which comes into the system?) 2) Why do you have to start prophylaxis a week or so before going into the malaria area Thanks in advance (Source: Student Doctor Network)

International Work Question
I'm currently doing international work and I noticed some people are afraid of mentioning activities in case the adcom would view it as unethical/inappropriate. I've been involved in the wards of the hospital I have been working at, with direct patient contact, including pricking fingers for rapid malaria tests. Would this be considered appropriate? Also, where is the line between appropriate/inappropriate? I am being aided by qualified professionals while doing these activities, but I've...

How do you kill a malaria parasite? Clog it with cholesterol
by thomas.m (Posted Fri May 27, 2016 1:01 am)Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by Plasmodium parasites. After a person is bitten, the parasite invades the victim's red blood cells. There, it eventually divides into daughter parasites, which continue to destroy each red blood cell they infect.There are several drugs under development that interrupt this life cycle, including a class of compounds discovered in 2014 by Akhil Vaidya, PhD, a professor at Drexel University College of Medicine. In their 2014 study, Vaidya and his research team found that these drugs increase levels of sodium within the parasites' cells, ...
