Description: Transmission of Plasmodium parasite from  females Anopheles  mosquitoes to human. Rapidly multiply in the liver and then in red blood cells (RBC) of the infected person.


Suitable for: Pharmacy and Medical Students (UG and PG)


Learning outcome: Pathophysiology of malaria parasite. How the malaria parasite spread from mosquito to human and infected the liver and RBC.




Description:Malarial illness is caused by the infection of the red blood cells by the asexual forms of the malaria parasite and the involvement of the red cells makes malaria a potentially multisystem disease.


Suitable for: Pharmacy and Medical Students (UG and PG)


Learning outcome: Understanding the pathophysiology of Malaria parasite from mosquitoes to human involvement of RBC and understand their symptoms such as fever.

3.(E Book)



Description: Vector bone diseases are transmitted from infected arthropod species such as mosquitoes to human and their Safety measures and prevention. Malaria:etiology,pathology,diagnosis, prophylaxis and treatment.



Suitable for:  Pharmacy and Medical Students (UG and PG)


Learning outcome:  How the malaria parasite spread from mosquito to human and How to stop mosquito bites by the use of  mosquito repellent creams, liquids, coils, mats etc.

4.(Data Base)



Description: Both parasite and host-related factors contribute to the pathogenicity of the severe forms of the malaria disease and  contribute to the vascular damage and the consequent excessive inflammatory/immune response of the host. 


Suitable for:Pharmacy and medical Students (UG and PG)


Learning outcome: How the malaria parasites spread from blood to different part of body and their  severe effect on RBC and immune system.






Description: Reduction of malaria prevalence after introduction of artemisinin-combination-therapy (Hybrid therapy) and development of new drug by combination of two drugs.

Suitable for:Pharmaceutical students (M. Pharm and Ph.D.)


Learning outcome: Drug design and  development  of new drug by the combination of two drug molecules, to reduce the drug resistance and learn the advantage of combination therapy.
