Jul; 41(4)– Fradin MS, Day JF. Comparative efficacy of insect repellents against mosquito bites. N Engl J Med. Jul 4; (1)– The outlook for malaria control is grim. The disease, caused by mosquito-borne parasites, is present in countries and is responsible for over million clinical cases and 1 to 2 million deaths each year.

Inside the mosquito the parasites reproduce and develop. Malaria can be caused by several species of Plasmodium parasites, each of which has a complex life cycle (see illustration).Research in recent decades has shed light on many aspects of Plasmodium biology, broadening understanding of how parasites interact with the human immune system, cause human disease, and are transmitted by , in these fundamental areas and others, .

By July , he had demonstrated that mosquitoes could serve as intermediate hosts for bird malaria. After feeding mosquitoes on infected birds, he found that the malaria parasites could develop in the mosquitoes and migrate to the insects’ salivary glands, allowing the mosquitoes to infect other birds during subsequent blood meals.
