The occurrence of Plasmodium vivax in bone marrow/spleen has been reported by various authors (including Baro, del Portillo, Lacerda, Marti, Obaldia, Siqueira and Wirth). It is not apparent from the title, but some of the implications hereof are discussed in the 2017 article on “Malaria Eradication and the Hidden Parasite Reservoir” (click here).
A new blood-stage parasite question has arisen. Are erythrocytic forms in bone marrow/spleen part of the hidden Plasmodium vivax reservoir? Do they cause or contribute to renewed or increased peripheral parasitaemia? (Link to the article on the subject [click here]).
While the malaria death count in Cambodia dropped to just one case in 2016, a new threat to the race against the disease arises in south-eastern Asia: superbugs. A superbug is a drug-resistant, human-killing parasite that modern medicine struggles to combat.
In a current paper in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, recently reviewed at Global Health Technology Review, Dr. Jonathan Parr (University of North Carolina) examines cases of RDT-negative P.falciparum cases as part of the Demographic Health Survey of Democratic Republic of the Congo.
What has happened to various hypnozoite-associated (in one way or another) personalities from the late 1970s and the 1980s, when the malarial hypnozoite was "accidentally" discovered, is not widely known. People occasionally enquire about these individuals. Some, such as M.R. Hollingdale, R.E. Sinden, G.A.T. Targett and M.B.
