Abstract:   (8340 Views)
Malaria is one of the most important protozoal infections that afflicts almost 100,000 people with 1% mortality rate in over 100 countries. Unfortunately, effective vaccines have not been developed and most of preventive modalities have focused on carriers, as well as prompt diagnosis and treatment. In Iran, the carrier insect in these provinces has shown resistance to routine pesticides. A. fluviatilis threatens other regions. Thus, along with controlling the carriers, it is necessary to apply other methods such as controlling the larva, and prevention of contract with the parasite. This article presents the application of rapid and accurate techniques of diagnosis such as PCR and new therapeutic modalities.
