Malaria: Volume 2, Pathology, Vector Studies, and Culture is a collection of papers that deals with erythrocyte destruction mechanism in malaria, the pathology of malaria, colonization of laboratory mosquitoes, and their transmission of plasmodia. Other papers describe the culture of the invertebrate stages of plasmodia, of mosquito tissues, and also of erythrocytic and exoerythrocytic stages of plasmodia. One paper constructs a model to show the roles of the different destructive and regenerative processes in the mechanisms of erythrocyte destruction in malaria. Another paper describes the organ changes and physiopathological mechanism connected with Plasmodium infection. These organs concern the spleen, liver, heart, and vascular system. One paper reviews the procedures involved in malaria transmission by mosquitoes, as well as some specialized procedures unique in avian, rodent, simian, and human malarias. Another paper discusses the benefits and drawbacks of a culture medium based on the composition of adult anopheline hemolymph. This medium should lead to a rapid growth rate in primary cultures of mosquito cells and a shorter interval of adaptation for continuous cell lines. The collection can prove useful for pharmacologists, general medical practitioners, investigators, and laboratory technicians involved in mosquito borne diseases or tropical medicine research.
