'• War Conditions Breed Malaria Among Soldiers and Civilians HY Dlt. THOMAS D. .MASTERS Written for NEA Malaria is probably the most common of all tropical diseases, and war has Increased Its incidence •xmong both military' jwrsonnel and :ivllinns who have moved into ma- arial districts or who arc forced to live in crowded and often temporary and unhygienic places. In practically all tropical anil subtropical areas, malaria is Ihe chief medicnl problem. And occasionally, in a year of Increased pre- cipilation sucu as this one, it extends well up into Ihe lemperale zones. Malaria is an acute infectious disease, caused by Ihe parasite known ns plasmodium, and conveyed Io man by the bite of cer- :ain mos(|Uiloes who are infecled with the parasite. The disease in nan is characterized by intcrmlt- :ent chills and fever. It tends to jecome chronic, and recurrences ire frequent. Anemia, exhaustion and enlargement of the spleen are usually associated wilh 11. Although there are Ihrcc distinct types of parasite and they produce somewhat varying symptoms, the episodes of chill and fever arc remarkably constant. FROM MOSQUITO TO MAN The malarial parasite iini!L>r(joes two phases of development, one In man nnd the other In the mos Quito. When the parasite Is introduced into the blood of man by the mosnuilo, it attaches itself Io the red cell of Ihe blood and. after a few days, enters the cell nnd begins to multiply. Finally, the red cell ruptures and discharges the small daughter parasites, which again attach themselves to other 'red blood cells, where llic process Is repealed. The release of the parasites from (lie red cells precedes Ihe paroxysm of chill nnd fever. The second phase begins when the female mosquito feeds on an infected man and ingests Ihe para- silc. The parasites then produce in the stomach wall of Ihe jnos- qullo, nnd the offspring make tlielr way to the InsccLs salivary gland, where they remain unlil the mosquito bites a susceptible human be ing, when the whole process repeats ilself. This extremely complicated and elaborate course of development of- fers numerous points of'attack on the disease.' The •'breeding; places of the mosquito should be ellml- nalcd by draining slagnniit .pods, by covering others • wllh oil anil kerosene. Access to- man' liy.,the mosnuilo can be prevented by the liberal use of sprays shown-to be effective against mosquitoes; 1 and by the screening of buildings, ana llio use of bed nets. The" mosquito is Inactive during the day, and precautions must be established from dusk to daylight, only. Tliose who inusl he about, at night should wear such clothing, h'endiicb;. and gloves llml the mosquito- cannot rciich the skin. Men Infected; wllh malaria should be treated anil' iso- Intcd from Ihe niosqullo, 'an, infected )>eople are dangerous to - their neighbors. NO VACCINE FOR DISEASE- NO successful vaccine exists for malaria. The recognized lirentment Is quinine, and the sources'of this drug arc now in the hands .of : thu enemy. Fortunately, there' are two synthetic drugs, atabrine and plas- mochin, which are nearly ns- satisfactory ns quinine. The army is doing an extraordinary Job In protecting itself against this disease, which has already decided many: battles and even the fnte of nations: The civilian popu- lallon has access to l\ie same techniques if'It will spend the time and money. • By KUTII MIM.KT A war wife followlnn her lius- ind from camp to cnmi> may Uo our)} 1 or homesick or she may en- loy euch now home—depending on nor own'attitude.
