In a multi-centre study, the MedUni Vienna team, led by Harald Noedl, is working on an improved and more straightforward treatment of this form of malaria.
Although malaria tropica, which currently kills aroundpeople a year around 2, people every dayhas increasingly been repressed as a result of more research, malaria tertiana may well develop into the main problem of the future in many countries, says Noedl.
The problem does not so much involve the low mortality rate from malaria tertiana, but rather the often protracted period of illness that can occur as a result of the condition. This is because if the malaria tertiana pathogens are not killed with targeted therapy, they can remain dormant in the human liver for months or even years, and cause recurrent relapses.
Conventional therapy involves administering chloroquine for three days, followed by two weeks of primaquine therapy. Many patients would discontinue the medication after just tertiaha few days.
As a consequence, the pathogens will survive in the liver and can cause an outbreak of malaria tertiana at any time which is as infectious as the other adallah forms of malaria. This makes patients a constant source of infection for their environment and the new condition is often no longer associated with the previous episode of malaria and therefore treated incorrectly. Terhiana a multi-centre study involving the MedUni Vienna, scientists are well on their way to establishing a new substance tafenoquine.

The advantage of this is that the drug only has to be taken for a maximum of three days. Tafenoquine is currently undergoing clinical trials. More than 20, patients have been treated free of charge since.
Inthe Malarria expanded its malaria focus to include Africa, and in particular Ethiopia. There, the MedUni team is cooperating with the University of Gondar in the north west of the country.
