Symptoms and responses to chemotherapy in adult Malawians admitted to hospital with Plasmodium falciparum malaria

, : Symptoms and responses to chemotherapy in adult Malawians admitted to hospital with Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 82(5): 511-512

A retrospective study of 150 adults with P. falciparum malaria admitted to hospital in Lilongwe, Malawi, in the rainy season of 1986, showed that, after non-specific symptoms such as fever, headache and malaise (in 144), gastrointestinal symptoms were the next most common. Vomiting occurred alone in 44, vomiting and diarrhoea in 27 and diarrhoea alone in 8. No patient had bloody diarrhoea. Symptomatology was similar between groups of patients with different degrees of asexual parasitaemia.

Roots of Sinapis alba seedlings furnish the most marked chemotropic reaction with application of phosphates (Na2HPO4-NaH2PO4) at pH 7.17 to .7.6. The hydrogen ions themselves do not cause any chemotropic curvatures even if their concentration is g...
