We focus primarily on the blood stages of Plasmodium falciparum, the most lethal of the human malaria parasites, but also integrate results from simian, avian and rodent models of malaria that were a major focus of early investigations into plasmodial metabolism.

The prevention and management of malaria is primarily based on the use of drugs. Clinical trials have however revealed that between individuals there is large variability in the pharmacokinetic profiles of many antimalarial drugs. The resulting variations in concentrations of the drug within plasma might lead to either suboptimum effectiveness or drug toxicity in some patients.
