Of the entire parasitic ailments that beset guy within the hotter components of the realm, malaria remains to be the most important reason for morbidity and mortality. even with extensive efforts to interrrupt its transmission malaria nonetheless threatens over 800 million humans, greater than one-fifth of the world's inhabitants. Malignant tertian malaria brought on by Plasmodium Jalciparum most likely kills one million each year. Vivax malaria briefly incapacitates thousands extra. the quest for antimalarial medicinal drugs, either common and syn. thetic, has been and is still essentially the most difficult and, from time to time, lucrative routines ever undertaken through ;:;hemists and biologists. The significance of the hassle is mirrored by means of the truth that, within the final 15 years, good over 250000 compounds were screened for antimalarial task in precisely one programme, that performed below the auspices of the Walter Reed military Institute of analysis, let alone sporadic stories undertaken through different examine staff and firms. whereas most folks engaged within the look for new medicinal drugs agree rational technique according to wisdom of the intimate biochemical pathways of the objective cells will be excellent in addition to intellectually pleasing, such a lot are reluctantly obliged to concede that, as much as the current time, the probabilities of luck following a roughly empirical seek were some distance higher. impressive advances in molecular biology and biochemistry lately, notwithstanding, are speedily altering this situation.

Unfortunately the life history of none of them is completely known, and it was not until 1970 that the sporogonic cycle in sandflies was discovered (AYALA 1970 b). In view of the paucity of data relating to malaria in lizards, it has only been possible to provide a tentative and arbitrary division of the parasites into two subgeneric groups, based on size, Sauramoeba for the larger and Carinamoeba for the smaller (GARNHAM 1966). A third subgenus was created for the sole malaria parasite of snakes, Plasmodium (Ophidiella) wenyoni.

1977), where a decrease in the labelling 34 1. W. SHERMAN (by galactose oxidase/tritiated borohydride after pretreatment of cells with neuraminidase) of band 3 in P. knowlesi-infeeted monkey erythrocytes was described. WALLACH and CONLEY (1977) found a decrease in PAS-l and the iodinatable component of band 5 (50000 mol. ) in P. knowlesi-infected cells, new Coomassie blue staining bands (120000-200000 mol. ), and a parasite-specific glycoprotein (PAS-lp, 125000 mol. ). Band 2 decreased while band 4 increased.

The hypnozoites remain unchanged throughout, but a proportion apparently became reactivated at various times, accompanied by a decline in number of the hypnozoites. The hypnozoite cycle is shown diagrammatically in Fig. 1 (H, aHl, a:H 2 , aH 3 ). The reactivated forms (= "relapse forms") resemble those described by SHORTT and GARNHAM (1948) and later by other workers. Their dimensions varied from 16-38 ~m. Hypnozoites have now been seen in P. cynomolgi cynomolgi, P. c. bastianellii (Fig. 4), and P.
