Morphological and Molecular Identification of Malaria Vector in Three Sites in Kordofan Region with Exposure of Plasmodium Falciparum as Malaria Parasite

Fathielhag, Sumaiaabukashawa, Hind abushama


Abstract: Background The aim of this study is to identify the malaria vector and the parasite in three towns in the region of Kordofan, namely Elobeid, Alfula and Kadugli. Methods The samples of Anopheles arabiensis vector were collected and identified morphologically and genetically. Blood samples from patients were collected on filter paper and Plasmodium species was determined by nested PCR amplification. Results The results showed that Anopheles arabiensis was the main vector of malaria in Kordofan region while Plasmodium falciparum was the dominant parasite. Conclusion The present data suggest that the molecular identification of Anopheles aribiensis and nested PCR detection of Plasmodium falciparum can be useful complement to microscopical diagnosis.
