Malaria, tuberculosis, pneumonia and hemozoin

Breaking news: Artemisia afra cures tuberculosis

Pascal Gisenya, Nsengiyumva Bati Daddy, Jérôme Munyangi, Mutaz Akkawi, Pierre Lutgen Already 30 years ago it was known that human monocytes which have ingested hemozoin are unable to neutralize pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and tumor cells, and that macrophage responses decline during the course of human and animal malaria. Hemozoin (Hz) is a biocrystal synthesized by Plasmodium and other blood-feeding parasites to avoid the toxicity of free heme derived from the digestion of hemoglobin during invasion of the erythrocytes.

Zink und Blutdruck

A few years ago we described in a blog on www.malariaword.org the role zinc may have in diarrhea and tropical diseases. Zn2+ deficiency is a common comorbidity of many chronic diseases. In a recent weblog we describe the deleterious effect of zinc deficiency in elderly people on the development of pneumonia. Zinc deficiency has a detrimental effect on blood pressure and hypertension is one of the major causes of mortality in Covid infections. A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials on the effects of zinc...

covid verschont Afrika

In an April 10 interview, American philanthropist Melinda Gates expressed her belief that the coronavirus pandemic will have the worst impact in the developing world.

Zinc, Covid and the elderly

Mit Zink gegen Covid

LOW ZINC STATUS: A RISK FOR PNEUMONIA IN THE ELDERLY Plasma Zn decrease is strongly related to age and may be a predictor of all-cause mortality in elderly population. In a study in Italy plasma zinc levels were measured in individuals having an age range of 10–93 years. No significant differences in plasma zinc concentrations were found between males and females. Up to the age of 50 years, the mean plasma zinc of normal individuals remained relatively constant at 70 ± 32µg/100 ml after which the levels decreased. Chooi M.K. Todd...
