What kills DNA in blood?

I am not too sure if this answers your question, but if you are working 
on detecting parasite DNA or viral DNA, as long as the organism is 
replicating its genome within the body you should have detectable DNA 
levels.  I have seen success in detecting only a few femptograms of 
parasite DNA by PCR.  I hope this helps in some way.
