Caption: Malaria parasites. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of red blood cells infected with malaria parasites (Plasmodium sp.). After sporzites are injected into the body by a mosquito, a life stage known as a trophozoite develops. These inhabit red blood cells (erythrocytes) and digest the cells' haemoglobin, which causes anaemia in the host. They then replicate, releasing merozoites that invade other red blood cells. This periodic release of merozoites causes severe cyclic fevers. Magnification: x6000 at 6x7cm size.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
