One of the major complications of malaria due to Plasmodium falciparum is hemolytic anemia. The generalized military-political crisis of 2013 in the country has led to the dysfunction of the health system, thus promoting the resurgence of cases of diseases including malaria in Bagassou. The objective of this study was to describe the epidemiological aspects of anemia during the malaria of the Child in Bangassou.

Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews2018, Issue 11.

For the review's secondary objective, we identified a further two studies in addition to the two ITS studies; both used a CBA design and were conducted between 1973 and 2000. The four studies used a range of delivery methods including handheld, vehicle‐mounted, and aircraft‐mounted spraying equipment.

Cryogenically preserved RBCs support gametocytogenesis of Plasmodium falciparum in vitro and gametogenesis in mosquitoes

Basic guidelines are presented for integrating cryo-preserved RBCs into an existing laboratory/insectary framework for P. falciparum SMFAs with significant potential for reducing running costs while achieving greater reliability.

Interplay between Plasmodium falciparum haemozoin and l-arginine: implication for nitric oxide production

December 6, 2018 - 17:03 -- Open Access
Yolanda Corbett, Sarah D’Alessandro, Nicoletta Basilico, et al.
Malaria Journal 2018 17:456, 6 December 2018

It is proposed that haemozoin interacts with l-arginine reducing its availability for iNOS, and thus decreasing nitric oxide production.

A forward genetic screen reveals a primary role for Plasmodium falciparum Reticulocyte Binding Protein Homologue 2a and 2b in determining alternative erythrocyte invasion pathways
