attracted to the smell of human feet sweat
Anopheles mosquitoes that carry the malaria parasite carriers of the
disease is not absorbed by the human body and the smell of sweaty feet
odor of other disease-carrying mosquitoes to bite stimulates appetite.
School of Hygiene and tropical Medicine researchers said the findings
in the journal "clickcanal Van" published mosquitoes carrying malaria
parasites three times higher than non-parasitic mosquitoes are
attracted to body odor. Scientists boost mosquitoes and mosquito-borne
malaria parasite controls the sense of smell. Doctor James Logan says,
"The thing that surprises me is that no matter how smart malaria
parasites. These parasites is constantly evolving and it seems to
always be one step ahead of us". Foot odor To conduct this research,
scientists malaria mosquito (Anopheles Gambia) to Kshndhtryn type of
malaria, Plasmodium Falciparum infected. Encapsulate the mosquitoes
were placed in nylon socks volunteers wore twenty hours.
Doctor Logan says: "It is safe for body odor that will keep your
interest for months". The same tests were repeated with the mosquitoes
that carry malaria.
Comparison tests showed that mosquitoes carrying malaria parasites
three times higher than normal mosquitoes were attracted to the smell
of socks. Researchers Anopheles malaria parasites manipulate the sense
of smell. Doctor Logan says, "We think that the mosquito parasite
increases the sense of smell. Present our theory is that there is no
change in the mosquito olfactory system that we humans will be
quicker". Clever Tactics When the mosquito parasite lucky people find
to get into the bloodstream of a human being, and the chances of
survival and the probability of increases.
Now, three years of research, scientists have begun to gain further
understanding of this parasite. What the scientists found that infected
mosquitoes are more sensitive to the odor of the human body to help
fight diseases. Doctor Logan says, "If we understand how the parasite
manipulates the mosquito's sense of smell may be able to find something
else to be attractive to mosquitoes infected mosquitoes Trytb effective
methods to trap itself". According to the World Health Organization in
2010 an estimated 219 million people worldwide are infected with
malaria and 660 thousand people have died from the disease.
Malaria in Iran and Afghanistan. Nearly a million people in malarious areas in the provinces of Sistan
and Baluchestan, Kerman and Hormozgan living. According to the latest
World Health Organization reported malaria cases in Iran is declining.
Most of vivax malaria, which is common in falciparum malaria Parm and
constitutes only 12% of cases. The 2012 World Health Organization
statistics, the number of patients with suspected malaria cases in 3239
indicate that 1,529 immigrants from other countries, especially
Afghanistan. Malaria is a serious problem in Afghanistan, and about ten
million people live in the area of malaria foci. According to the
World Health Organization in 2012 an estimated 940 thousand people in
this country are almost half a million suspected malaria confirmed
cases of malaria in Afghanistan have been identified.
