The P. knowlesi infection was highly synchronous in only one patient, where 97% of the parasites were at the late trophozoite stage.Early, late and mature trophozoites and schizonts were observed in films from all patients except three; where schizonts and early trophozoites were absent in two and one patient, respectively.Cited by: 167.
A trophozoite is the feeding stage of a protozoan parasite. During this stage the merozoites develop to form immature or ring stage trophozoites which then progress to mature trophozoites. The mature trophozoites develop into schizonts. The erythrocytic cycle results in the formation of 4 to 36 new parasites in each infected cell within a.
