Maloff Protect is used to prevent malaria. It contains two active ingredients, atovaquone and proguanil. These anti-malaria tablets can help prevent you from catching malaria if you travel to an area with a high risk of disease.

Malaria is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito, which passes the malaria parasite which is known as (Plasmodium falciparum) into the bloodstream and this tablet prevents malaria by killing this parasite. It is not suitable for children or adolescents unless prescribed by a doctor.

    Maloff Protect is an effective malaria prevention treatment, available without the need for a prescription. A pack of 24 Tablets of Maloff is sufficient for holidays in malaria risk areas for up to 15 days. Travellers planning journeys across continents can travel into areas that have different malaria prophylaxis recommendations. The choice of prophylaxis medication must reflect overall risk to ensure protection in all areas; it may be possible to change from one regimen to another. Those travelling to remote or little-visited areas may require expert advice.

    Maloff Protect and other antimalarial drugs work by killing the parasite, preventing you from developing malaria. Maloff Protect has to be taken as a complete course to be effective.

    Maloff Protect needs to be taken 1-2 days before you commence your travel to the high risk area, this is so that the medication is in your system and ready to fight against any malaria parasites. You must take the medication at the same time every day to ensure full protection. You must finish the course of treatment (7 days after you return from the malaria risk area). Take Maloff with food and milky drink, if possible. If you vomit in the first hour of taking Maloff, then you will not have protection; you need to take another tablet straight away. It is not necessary for you to take another tablet if you vomit after 1 hour of taking Maloff, until your next dose. It is likely that the protection is already be in your system after one hour.

    About Malaria

    Malaria is a common but very life-threatening disease that is popular in many tropical and subtropical climates. Symptoms of malaria can begin to appear anywhere between a week and 4 weeks of contracting the infection. There are some extreme cases where the symptoms can lay dormant for a number of months and then appear.

    What causes Malaria?

    Infected mosquitos are known to carry the plasmodium parasite which is then passed to humans by biting them, causing Malaria. When a mosquito bites an individual, the plasmodium parasite makes its way through a human's bloodstream. Once it reaches the liver it begins to cultivate in the liver and infect the red blood cells there. As the parasite begins to multiply, the cells which are infected burst and this then causes some of the symptoms, like the ones listed above.

    There are 5 main types of malaria, some being more deadly than others, but the most deadly out of the 5 would be plasmodium falciparum. Patients with this variant may develop liver and kidney failure, and potentially experience convulsions.

    Although extremely rare, malaria can be transmitted through blood transfusions, sharing needles and organ donation. Cases of this are extremely low as the processes used for organ donations and blood transfusions are very good.

    How to avoid Malaria

    Catching malaria can be avoided if the right steps are taken. The NHS suggests that you use insect repellent on your skin to protect yourself from mosquitos, making sure it’s 50% DEET based. They also recommend you take any antimalarial medicine that is prescribed to you, usually taking it a few days before your travels or a few weeks after you’re back. Another step they recommend is to wear long-sleeved clothing and trousers to make sure you’re covered the most you can be, when the mosquitos are most active.
