4. Chemoprophylaxis Given the possibility of antimalarials purchased in the tropics being fake24, travellersshould obtain the medication required for their chemoprophylaxis from a reputablesource in the UK before they travel. ACMP also advises against purchasing antimalarialdrugs over the internet. Causal prophylaxis Causal prophylaxis is directed against the liver stage of the malaria parasite, whichtakes approximately 7 days to develop (see life cycle in figure1). Successful drugactivity at this stage prevents the parasite from progressing to infect red blood cells. Causal prophylactics need to be given for approximately 7 days after infection25, soACMP recommends that they are continued for 7 days after leaving a malarious area(see table 3 of drug regimens in chapter 4). It is important not to confuse liver-stage schizonts with hypnozoites. All 4 species ofhuman malaria have liver-stage schizonts but only Plasmodium vivax and P. ovale havethe hypnozoite stage, against which causal prophylaxis is NOT effective. Suppressive prophylaxis prophylactic drugs currently advised byACMP, acts against the hypnozoite stage Suppressive prophylaxis is directed of P. vivax or P. ovale. against the red blood cell stages of themalaria parasite and thus needs to be Primaquine is active against hypnozoites taken for several weeks to prevent (present only in P.vivax and P.ovale) and also has causal prophylactic activityagainst the liver stage schizonts of all Therefore, suppressive prophylactic drugs 4 malaria parasites of humans27.

Emergency Standby MedicationTraveller Information LeafletAvailable to download from the HPA website You have been advised to carry emergency standby antimalarial medicationwith you on your forthcoming trip. This leaflet provides you with advice onwhen and how to use it. Please keep it safely with your medication. If you aretravelling with a companion, please ask them to read this leaflet as they maybe able to assist you in following its advice in the event of your becoming ill.
Incubation period of malariaThe minimum period between being bitten by an infected mosquito anddeveloping symptoms of malaria is 8 days, so a febrile illness starting withinthe first week of your arrival in a malarious area is not likely to be due tomalaria.
Symptoms and signs of malariaMalaria usually begins with a fever. You may then feel cold, shivery, shaky andvery sweaty. Headache, feeling sick and vomiting are common with malariaand you are also likely to experience aching muscles. Some people developjaundice (yellowness of the whites of the eyes and the skin). It is notnecessary for all these symptoms to be present before suspecting malaria asfever alone may be present at first.
When to take your Emergency Standby MedicationIf you develop a fever of 38°C [100°F] or more, more than one week afterbeing in a malarious area, please seek medical attention straight away.
If you will not be able to get medical attention within 24 hours of yourfever starting, start your standby medication and set off to find andconsult a doctor.
How to take your Emergency Standby MedicationFirst, take medication (usually paracetamol) to lower your fever. If your feveris controlled, it makes it less likely that you will vomit your antimalarial drugs.
Then, without delay, take the first dose of your emergency standbyantimalarial medication.
If you do vomit and it is within 30 minutes of taking the antimalarial drugs,repeat the first dose of them (but do not repeat the paracetamol). If youvomit 30–60 minutes after taking the first dose of the antimalarial drugs,repeat the treatment, but take only HALF the first dose.
Continue the treatment as instructed for the particular drugs prescribed for you.
Please remember that this emergency standby medication has beenprescribed based on your particular medical history and should be taken only by you as it may not be suitable for others.
Once you have completed your emergency standby medication you shouldrestart your malaria prophylactic drug(s) one week after you took the firsttreatment dose of. emergency standby medication. If your preventivemedication consists of mefloquine and your standby treatment includedquinine, you should wait a week after completing the course of quininebefore you restart mefloquine.
