Malaria is an infectious disease, which spreads through a bite of infected female Anopheles mosquito, transferring parasites into the human body. Furthermore, these parasites lodge into liver cells where they multiply and grow. They then move to red blood cells to reach a stage called merozoites. These merozoites grow inside the red cells and destroy them which further cause symptoms such as fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headache. In addition, the drugs that are used to treat and prevent malarial infection are called as antimalarial. There are different type of drugs, such as quinine, chloroquine, proguanil, mefloquine, pyrimethamine, and others, available in the market for the treatment of malarial infection. Malaria has affected the tropical regions in the world including Africa and Asia, Central and South America, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, some parts of Middle East, and some Pacific islands. The increasing cases of traveler’s malaria is one of the factors contributing to growth of the market. Every year, thousands of people worldwide travel to such malaria affected regions, which is expected to increase the risk of infection.

Malaria is common infectious disease caused by the protozoan parasite, Plasmodium parasites. The bite of an infected female Anopheles mosquito transmits a parasite to the person’s body, which then enters into the person’s liver where the production of parasite occurs. Human malaria are generally caused by five types of plasmodium parasites, including P. falciparum, P. malariae, P. ovale, P. vivax, and P.knowlesi. Among these, P. falciparum and P. vivax are the most dangerous species of parasite causing highest number of malaria mortality. Early diagnosis and efficient treatment are crucial measures to control malaria. Different types of drugs such as quinine, chloroquine, mefloquine, proguanil, primaquine, and others are used in the treatment of malaria. Moreover, some combination drugs such as Pyrimethamine & sulfadoxine, Artemether & lumefantrine, and others are also prescribed for treating the disease.
