About Plasmodium falciparum Palo Alto/Uganda
Plasmodium falciparum is a unicellular protozoan parasite of humans, and the deadliest species of Plasmodium that cause malaria in humans. Almost every malarial death is caused by P. falciparum, and 93% of death occurs in Africa. Children under five years of age are most affected, accounting for 61% of the total deaths. In Sub-Saharan Africa, over 75% of cases were due to P. falciparum, whereas in most other malarial countries, other, less virulent plasmodial species predominate.
General information about this species can be found in Wikipedia.
