Relapse in Malaria: P.G. Shute’s “X Body”

May 15, 2018 - 22:20 -- Miles Markus

Was P.G. Shute’s “X Body” the same plasmodial stage that is now called a “hypnozoite”? The short answer is “No”. The malariologist who has just put this question to me has suggested that the whole reply (see below) be made available in the MalariaWorld Newsletter, considering the current topicality of the enigmatic hypnozoite; particularly in regard to the concept of malaria eradication.

Bone Marrow and Hypnozoite-Independent Plasmodium vivax Malarial Recurrences

May 11, 2018 - 20:19 -- Miles Markus

As shown by the record of historical events listed in Table 1 in a recent review of biological concepts in recurrent vivax malaria, the question of a hypnozoite-independent, non-circulating origin(s) of recurrences was first raised approximately 7 years ago. (Link to the paper and Table 1 [click here]). More specifically, parasites in bone marrow as a possible contributing source are discussed in this 2018 article, the matter having initially been debated in a 2017 publication cited therein.

Durable malaria elimination and democracy (originally posted in 2015 in Forum Topics)

February 28, 2018 - 10:30 -- Anton Alexander

Can there be a link between Durable Malaria Elimination and Democracy?  Testing a hypothesis.

Democracy is a belief in freedom, a belief in equality between people, a belief that everyone should have an equal say in deciding our collective future.

Four years ago, with the Arab Spring, it was believed democracy was about to spread around the region. But there was no such spontaneous or mechanical outcome. Instead there was bloodshed and civil war.

So what went wrong?
