Epidemiology and prophylaxis of malaria in France (author's transl)

La Nouvelle presse médicale
R Bastin, G Charmot

Abstract

A study of 100 cases of malaria in France, 98 of which were imported, shows the strong predominance (83%) of Plasmodium falciparum and of contamination in Africa (86%). The reasons why malaria is rare among tourists returning from Asia are given. The risk of re-introduction of the disease into France seems to be slight, especially for P. falciparum. Chemoprophylaxis is easy when aminoquinolines can be recommended, but much more complicated otherwise, the reasons for failure being the lack of effect of other drugs on pre-erythrocytic forms, resistance to chemotherapy and lack of information or carelessness.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.
