Scientists confirm impact of submicroscopic malarial infections during pregnancy

Science Daily - Malaria - April 27, 2015 - 16:44
A scientific study conducted in Benin confirms the harmful impact of submicroscopic malarial infections during pregnancy. These complications include maternal anemia, premature births and low birthweights in children. Moreover, the researchers show that, in diagnosing malarial infections, molecular biology techniques are more sensitive than the classical microscopic examinations, with 40% of infections detected by the former as against 16% by the latter. These results will permit drawing particular attention to these infections, in order to improve malarial prevention strategies for pregnant women and newborn babies, particularly those affected by the disease in Sub-Saharan Africa.
