Artemisia afra completely inhibits transmission of gametocytes

February 27, 2020 - 19:35 -- Pierre Lutgen

Gametocytes are loaded with hemozoin resulting from hemoglobulin consumption. Their voracious need of this food may explain why they hide in the bone marrow where they find a large supply of young red blood cells generated by erythropoiesis. Malaria leads to hemolysis and anemia, often severe, and this triggers and amplifies erythropoiesis.  Over the years it became evident that not only intravenous artesunate often causes hemolysis, but also ACT therapy.

New from MESA: ASTMH 2019 Recap in the MESA Resouce Hub: Emerging evidence in school-based malaria interventions from Uganda, Rwanda and Mali

Podcast: Condensin Proteins Essential for Malaria Proliferation and Transmission

February 21, 2020 - 17:57 -- Malaria Minute

Malaria Minute, 21 February 2020

Scientists identify two proteins that are essential for the malaria parasite’s genetic malleability, and the substance responsible for ‘rosette’ formation in human red blood cells is identified.

The Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance (MESA) is seeking three volunteers as MESA Correspondents to report from the "Genomic Epidemiology of Malaria" Conference in the Wellcome Genome Campus, UK, June 08 - 10, 2020.

Podcast: EphA2 Protein Mediates Critical Stage of Cerebral Malaria

February 14, 2020 - 17:54 -- Malaria Minute

Malaria Minute, 14 February 2020
