Maloff Protect Malaria - 24 Tablets 'Brand New for Pharmacies'
Product Model: GSL
Pack Size: 24
Maloff Protect is a form of malaria prevention medication, also known as malaria chemoprophylaxis. Maloff Protect's active substances are Atovaquone and Proguanil 250mg/100mg, which are the leading combination for malaria prevention in the UK.
Both ingredients prevent the production of the P. falciparum parasite, which is the most serious form of human malaria.
Once bitten by a mosquito carrying the parasite, it will enter the bloodstream and reproduce within the red blood cells. However, Maloff Protect will work to:
• Halt the production of substances needed for the parasite to reproduce
• Prevent the action of a compound found in the parasite
It will take up to 7 days for Maloff Protect to kill the malarial parasite after being bitten. However, this is only if the course of medication is completed and taken correctly. Otherwise, you will increase your risk of infection.
Until now, this combination of ingredients for malaria chemoprophylaxis was only available with a doctor's prescription. However, with Maloff Protect, you can get the same protection direct from your pharmacist, making your travel preparations even simpler.
The 24 pack is perfect if you are travelling for 1-2 weeks. Before you travel, ensure you have enough tablets for the needed dose.
This item is a pharmacy medicine and therefore we require you to complete a few questions upon checkout.

Malaria is a very serious tropical disease caused by plasmodium parasites, which are mainly transmitted through the bites of female Anopheles mosquitoes that predominately bite at night.
Some types of malaria require that you take more than one type of tablet, at the same time, to help prevent malaria.
Malaria prophylaxis is recommended for non-immune residents and travellers to malarious areas as these individuals have little or no immunity to malaria and risk severe attacks.
If you require more information on the disease, it's symptoms and other treatments that are avaliable please visit our Online Doctor Page.
When you are taking this medication to prevent malaria, you should also reduce the chances of being bitten by mosquitoes.
- Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved clothing and long trousers when you are outside after sunset.
- Use insect repellent creams or sprays on parts of your body not covered by clothing.
- Sleep in a properly screened room or under a mosquito net.
- Spray to kill any mosquitoes that may have entered rooms in spite of screening.
