It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.Basketball: A competitive team sport played on a rectangular court having a raised basket at each end.Football: A competitive team sport played on a rectangular field. This is the American or Canadian version of the game and also includes the form known as rugby.

Resurgence of blackwater fever in long-term European expatriates in Africa: report of 21 cases and review. (1/10)

Blackwater fever (BWF) is a severe clinical syndrome, characterized by intravascular hemolysis, hemoglobinuria, and acute renal failure that is classically seen in European expatriates chronically exposed to Plasmodium falciparum and irregularly taking quinine. BWF virtually disappeared after 1950, when chloroquine superseded quinine. We report 21 cases of BWF seen in France from 1990 through 1999 in European expatriates who lived in sub-Saharan Africa. All patients had macroscopic hemoglobinuria, jaundice, and anemia. Acute renal failure occurred in 15 patients (71%), 7 of whom required dialysis. The presumed triggers of BWF were halofantrine (38%), quinine (24%), mefloquine (24%), and halofantrine or quinine (14%). Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) activity was normal in the 14 patients who underwent this test. Low-level P. falciparum parasitemia was found in 8 patients. All 21 patients survived. Our data and 13 cases reported in the literature suggest a resurgence of classic BWF among Europeans living in Africa and a need to discuss attendant therapeutic implications.  (+info)

Relationship between plasma Interleukin-12 (IL-12) and IL-18 levels and severe malarial anemia in an area of holoendemicity in western Kenya. (2/10)

In this study, we investigated whether levels of interleukin-12 (IL-12) and IL-18 in plasma are associated with severe malarial anemia outcomes in an area of holoendemicity in western Kenya. We compared plasma IL-12 and IL-18 levels in six groups of children grouped into the categories aparasitemic, asymptomatic, mild malaria, high-density uncomplicated malaria (UC), moderate malarial anemia (MMA), or severe malarial anemia (SMA). IL-12 levels were significantly reduced in children with SMA (P < 0.05) but not in other groups compared to children in the aparasitemic control group. IL-18, a cytokine known to be critical for the induction of gamma interferon along with IL-12, was produced more frequently (70%) in children with UC (P = 0.06) than in children in the aparasitemic control group (32%). However, in the SMA group the IL-18 response rate declined to 30%, which was similar to that in the aparasitemic control group, which showed a 32% response rate. This finding suggests that the IL-18 response may be impaired in children with SMA. In summary, the results from this study support the hypothesis that impairment of IL-12 and/or IL-18 response may contribute to the development of severe malarial anemia in areas of holoendemicity for malaria.  (+info)

Age-related changes in red blood cell complement regulatory proteins and susceptibility to severe malaria. (3/10)

Severe malaria-associated anemia and cerebral malaria are life-threatening complications of Plasmodium falciparum infection. Red blood cell (RBC) complement regulatory proteins (CRPs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of both. We sought to determine whether there are age-related changes in the expression of CRPs that could explain the susceptibility to severe malaria-associated anemia in young children and the susceptibility to cerebral malaria in older children and adults. In cross-sectional surveys in malaria-endemic and -nonendemic areas of Kenya and in Reims, France, the level of RBC CRPs was lowest in young children and increased into adulthood. In case-control studies, patients with cerebral malaria and matched control subjects had higher levels of RBC CRPs than did patients with severe anemia and matched control subjects, especially during convalescence. We conclude that RBC CRP levels vary with age and that the lower levels of these proteins in young children in areas of high transmission, such as western Kenya, may place these children at greater risk of severe malaria-associated anemia than cerebral malaria.  (+info)

The treatment of malaria. (8/10)

At least four doses of quinine followed by a single dose of mefloquine or by a single dose of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine are two highly effective regimens for chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria. Mefloquine alone is valuable in ambulant patients. Chloroquine-sensitive falciparum malaria can be treated with a course of chloroquine. Vivax and all other types of malaria should be treated with sequential chloroquine and primaquine. Quinine, by intravenous infusion, is the most effective drug for severe falciparum malaria. The optimum intravenous dose varies between 5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg administered over four hours. Intravenous or oral quinine should be administered about every 12 hours and the total daily dose of quinine should rarely exceed 20 mg/kg. Intravenous fluid input should be controlled in falciparum malaria to prevent pulmonary oedema. Established renal failure is best treated by dialysis. The value of adrenocortical steroids for falciparum coma has not been established. Fresh blood transfusion may be helpful in small doses for severe anaemia and to replace clotting factors. Anticoagulants, such as heparin, should not be used in falciparum malaria.  (+info)

SUMMARY Hemolytic anemia is a prominent part of the clinical presentation of patients infected with organisms such as the Plasmodium sp., Babesia, and Bartonella, which directly invade the erythrocyte. Malaria is the most common cause of hemolytic anemia on a worldwide basis, and much has been learned about how the parasite enters the erythrocyte and the mechanism of anemia. Falciparum malaria, in particular, can cause severe and sometimes fatal hemolysis (blackwater fever). Other organisms cause hemolytic anemia by producing a hemolysin (e.g., Clostridium perfringens), by stimulating an immune response (e.g., Mycoplasma pneumoniae), by enhancing macrophage recognition and hemophagocytosis, or by as yet unknown mechanisms. The many different infections that have been associated with hemolytic anemia are tabulated and references to the original studies provided.. ...

The objective of this study was to determine the role of malaria in the etiology of fetal malnutrition in Nigeria. This study took place at the Neonatal and Maternity Units of the Wesley Guild Hospital, Ilesa, Nigeria. This is a prospective study of 304 consecutive, singleton, term live births delivered between January and August 2002. Anthropometric and clinical data were recorded. Fetal malnutrition (FM; failure to acquire adequate quantum of fat and muscle mass during intrauterine growth) was diagnosed using clinical assessment of fetal nutritional status (CANS) and the score (CANSCORE) adapted by Metcoff. The placenta tissues were examined for malaria pigments and parasites, and placental and cord blood smears were examined for parasites. Babies were followed up in the neonatal period for clinical malaria. Babies were grouped into those with malaria-infected placental and cord blood specimens and those without. The two groups were compared with regard to the proportions with FM and complications of

Background: Severe malarial anemia is a major cause of mortality from malaria. Although of enormous relevance, its pathogenesis is largely unknown. Interestingly, the extent of anemia greatly exceeds the loss of erythrocytes due to direct destruction by the pathogen Plasmodium falciparum. Immune response against the parasite is partially mediated through the Fc receptor for immunoglobulin (Ig) G IIa (FcγRIIa, CD32). The presence of an arginine instead of a histdine residue at amino acid position 131 (H131R) in the extracellular domain of FcγRIIa reduces the affinity of the receptor for IgG2 and IgG3 isotypes but increases the binding activity for C-reactive protein (CRP). Methods: In Ghana, West Africa, 2504 children with severe malaria and 2027 matched healthy controls were studied for the FcγRIIaH131R polymorphism in order to ascertain its influence on major manifestations of the disease. The study group included patients with partly overlapping symptoms of severe malaria, among them 1591 ...
Severe malarial anemia (SMA) is a leading cause of mortality among children in sub-Saharan Africa. Although the novel cytokine, interleukin (IL)-23, promotes anemia in chronic inflammatory diseases, the role of IL-23 in SMA remains undefined. Since IL-23 and IL-12 share the IL-12p40 subunit and IL-12Rbeta1 receptor, and are down-regulated by IL-10, relationships among these cytokines were explored in Kenyan children with varying severities of malarial anemia. Children with malarial anemia had increased circulating IL-23 and IL-10 and decreased IL-12 relative to healthy controls. Enhanced anemia severity and elevated parasitemia were associated with increased IL-10 relative to IL-23 and IL-12. Further exploration of the relationships among the cytokines using an in vitro model in which peripheral blood mononuclear cells were treated with synthetic hemozoin (sHz, malarial pigment) revealed that IL-12p35 and IL-23p19 transcripts had a sustained induction over 72 h, while IL-12p40 and IL-10 message ...
Like most studies comparing and contrasting viewpoints of employers and their employees, there exists a gap that, if understood and addressed, can guide employers to make impactful decisions to better design and communicate assignment packages that more adeptly address the needs of their employees abroad and increase their satisfaction," Kenton said.. About the Survey. Similar to the 2001 study, the "Expatriate Trends Study 2013" was conducted though a web survey instrument. No self-identifying information was captured, keeping all individual responses anonymous and confidential. This chosen method of anonymity encourages more candid feedback from respondents. Data Collection occurred by The Marketing Audit over eight weeks from August 2 to September 30, 2013 with a sample sizes of 1,511 in 140 countries and a confidence rate of 95 percent, with margin of error at +/- 2.3 percent.

BACKGROUND: Hyperlactataemia is often associated with a poor outcome in severe malaria in African children. To unravel the complex pathophysiology of this condition the relationship between plasma lactate levels, parasite density, pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, and haemozoin-containing leucocytes was studied in children with severe falciparum malarial anaemia. METHODS: Twenty-six children with a primary diagnosis of severe malarial anaemia with any asexual Plasmodium falciparum parasite density and Hb | 5 g/dL were studied and the association of plasma lactate levels and haemozoin-containing leucocytes, parasite density, pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines was measured. The same associations were measured in non-severe malaria controls (N = 60). RESULTS: Parasite density was associated with lactate levels on admission (r = 0.56, P | 0.005). Moreover, haemozoin-containing neutrophils and IL-12 were strongly associated with plasma lactate levels, independently of parasite density (r = 0.60, P = 0

The disparities that we have identified in the statuses, roles, opportunities, and recognition granted to national, as compared with expatriate personnel, have multiple sources. Some of these originated in explicit policies of MSF-B in Russia and stemmed from the long-term nature of the projects in which the organization was engaged in this setting; others were inadvertent consequences of attitudes and behaviors that were not necessarily intended to produce the results that they did.25. To begin with, MSFs formal "policy for human resources in the missions" contained stipulations that a mission should not be administered solely by national personnel, and that a national should not occupy the post of Head of Mission. One of the cardinal factors involved here is what is sometimes referred to as the precept of "proximity," which is of great importance to MSF. It pertains to MSFs commitment to be "in the field" - that is, for its members to be physically "present" with the "people in precarious ...

Severe malarial anaemia (SMA) is a common complication of Plasmodium falciparum infections, resulting in mortality rates that may exceed 30% in paediatric populations residing in holoendemic transmission areas. One strategy for reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with SMA is to identify clinical predictors that can be readily recognized by caregivers for prompt therapeutic interventions. To determine clinical predictors of SMA, Kenyan children (3-36 mos., n=671) presenting with acute illness at a rural hospital in Siaya District were recruited. Demographic, clinical, laboratory and haematological parameters were measured upon enrolment. Since HIV-1 and bacteraemia promote reduced haemoglobin (Hb) concentrations, children with these infections were excluded from the analyses. Children with P. falciparum mono-infections (n=355) were stratified into three groups: uncomplicated malaria (Hb≥11.0 g/dL); non-SMA (6.0≤Hb,10.9), and SMA (Hb,6.0 g/dL). SMA was characterized by a younger ...

Regarding expatriate benefits, Lucent runs different systems in accordance with the terms of the expatriate contract. "Depending on each specific case, employees stay under their country of origins plan if they are transferred," Smit says. In this respect, he comments on the need for improvements in terms of employee mobility. "Pension arrangements are big handicaps restricting the mobility of workers," he says. As the situation is different in each country achieving a greater harmonisation is very difficult. "For instance, one of the problems we have right now is the UK which is becoming extremely expensive in pension terms," he says. Smits also highlights cultural differences between countries: "If you look at the Netherlands, I would say that people in general are not very investment-minded," he says, adding that this is now changing.

I am about to tread into controversial ground. In hunting boots. Anytime you bring up "meat" in sustainable circles, that single word brings to mind a hundred issues. First, it is the least environmentally-friendly food group as we currently produce it, and is too often associated with food-borne pathogens as a result of factory farm and industrial-scale slaughter practices.. But beyond that is a deeper issue, a vestigial primal instinct within that perhaps we civilized humans would rather not acknowledge. Meat must come from an animal. That animal is killed to provide it. Consumers are too far removed from this fact. We dont buy a cow. We buy sirloin in neat, sealed packages. Or, we get a double-cheeseburger in a box through a window.. How would we feel about meat if it were not so easy? What if the first step in that roast recipe was "Pull the trigger?" I decided to find out for myself.. Well, not all by myself. Each year, millions of hunting permits are issued, and 16 percent of those are ...
