Coatney has devoted his life's work to research on malaria, beginning with birds and ending with man, first as a zoologist, then as a chemotherapist, and throughout, immersed in all aspects of malariology.

Collins has devoted more time than, probably, any other worker in the Cited by: “Random mutations much more easily debilitate genes than improve them, and that this is true even of the helpful mutations. Let me emphasize, our experience with malaria’s effects on humans (arguably our most highly studied genetic system) shows that most helpful mutations degrade genes.

We report a phylogenetic analysis of primate malaria parasites based on the gene encoding the cytochrome b protein from the mitochondrial genome. We have studied 17 species of Plasmodium, including 14 parasitic in our analysis, four species were used for rooting the Plasmodium phylogenetic tree: two from closely related genera (Hepatocystis sp.

It has served as a foundation for subsequent investigations on these parasites, their primate hosts, and their mosquito vectors. The Ten-Thousand Year Fever: Rethinking Human and Wild-Primate Malarias (New Frontiers in Historical Ecology) View larger image.

[Loretta A Cormier] -- "Malaria is one of the oldest recorded diseases in human history, and year relationship to primates can teach us why it will be one of the most serious threats to humanity in the 21st.

The macaques, Old World primates, when infected with simian malaria parasites make excellent models for the biology of the human malarias. These nonhuman primate hosts of human and simian malaria parasites also offer faithful models to investigate mechanisms and treatments for severe pathology associated with malaria infections such as anemia.

Plasmodium knowlesi is one of the simian malarias that causes human infection (1,2).All 6 published reports of naturally acquired P.

knowlesi infection were in rural settings with the largest case series being reported from East Malaysia (3–8).

malaria, infectious parasitic disease that can be either acute or chronic and is frequently recurrent. Malaria is common in Africa, Central and South America, the Mediterranean countries, Asia, and many of the Pacific islands.

In the United States it was found in the South and less frequently in the northern and western parts of the country. These and other simian malaria parasite species have been informative as model parasites and complement research on P.
