Maloff Protect is a malaria prevention medication, which is also known as malaria chemoprophylaxis. Maloff Protect's active ingredients are Atovaquone and Proguanil 250mg/100mg, which are the leading combination for malaria chemoprophylaxis in the UK.

Both of these active substances prevent the production of a type of malarial parasite called P. falciparum - this is the most serious form of human malaria.

Once infected from the bite of a mosquito carrying P. falciparum, the parasite will begin to reproduce within the red blood cells. However, Maloff Protect will work to:

• Stop the production of certain substances that the parasite needs to reproduce
• Prevent the action of a compound that is found in the parasite

After being bitten, it will take up to 7 days for Maloff Protect to kill the malarial parasite. However, this is only if the course of medication is correctly taken and completed. Otherwise, you will put yourself at an increased risk of infection.

Until now, this combination of ingredients for malaria chemoprophylaxis was only available with a prescription from your GP. Maloff Protect offers the same level of protection but is available directly from your pharmacist, making your travel preparations even simpler.

The 36 pack is ideal if you are travelling for longer than 2 weeks. Before you travel, ensure you have enough tablets for the needed dose.
