Silica particles inhibit sporozoite invasion of the liver, promote IgE, inhibit CYP3A4 and provoke bursting of infected erythrocytes

February 23, 2018 - 17:31 -- Pierre Lutgen

Chronic inhalation of crystalline silica is an occupational hazard that results in silicosis due to the toxicity of silica particles to lung cells.

It is thus surprising to read that silica nanoparticles are extensively applied for drug delivery Silica particles are used as conveyors of drugs with low bioavailability. Even for artemether.

1st Malaria World Congress: 1-5 July 2018, Australia

January 6, 2018 - 10:11 -- First Malaria W...

A major gap in the malaria response landscape is the absence of a forum where representatives of the entire malaria world can meet. Our key aim for the inaugural World Congress on Malaria is to unify and energise the broader malaria community around a common sense of purpose, including one that links malaria with the wider global health and human development goals of Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals. Together we can learn from each other, plan for the implementation of cross sector strategies and galvanise the effort for the eradication of malaria.

Critique of WHO 2017 Malaria Report

December 11, 2017 - 17:21 -- William Jobin
Tags: 

The 2017 WHO report on the status of malaria at the end of 2016 is a mixture of good news and bad news, with the bad news predominating. Although Dr. Tedros, the Director General of WHO and Prof. Alonso, the Director of the Global Malaria Program are to be commended for their frank presentation of the negative trends, they need to identify the reasons for these trends if we are to make the changes needed to reverse them.

Thus I will attempt herein to analyze some of the reasons for these negative trends, and suggest changes needed if we are to overcome them.
