Caption: Malaria life-cycle. Artwork showing the life-cycle of malaria parasites. Clockwise from right: A mosquito bites and infects a person. Sporozoites in the mosquito's saliva enter the bloodstream and migrate to the liver, where they infect the cells and multiply into merozoites, which rupture the liver cells and escape back into the bloodstream. The merozoites then infect red blood cells, where they reproduce asexually, periodically breaking out of their hosts to invade fresh red blood cells. Sexual forms called gametocytes (upper left) are also produced, which, if taken up by a mosquito, will infect the insect and continue the lifecycle.
