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.

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.
