The potential adaptive nature of this manipulation of mosquito behaviour is discussed in the light of previous studies on other malaria models.

Although this study showed clearly that the most prevalent species identified was P. falciparum, the findings demonstrate the existence of non-falciparum malaria, especially P. malariae and P. vivax among children aged ≤ 5 years living both Kinshasa and North Kivu Provinces in DRC.


In situ loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) for identification of Plasmodium species in wide-range thin blood smears

On-line volunteers with short-training are able to differentiate malaria parasite species and parasite stages from digitalized thin smears based on simple visual cues (shape, size, texture and colour).

Systematic review of the role of angiopoietin-1 and angiopoietin-2 in Plasmodium species infections: biomarkers or therapeutic targets?

December 6, 2016 - 18:52 -- Open Access

Both Ang-1 and Ang-2 levels correlate with and can distinguish between malaria disease severity states within the group of malaria-infected patients.

Serological markers to measure recent changes in malaria at population level in Cambodia

November 9, 2016 - 17:13 -- Open Access
Karen Kerkhof, Vincent Sluydts, Lies Durnez, et al.
Malaria Journal 2016 15:529, 4 November 2016

For Plasmodium falciparum, antibodies against LSA3.RE, GLURP and Pf.GLURP.R2 are most likely to be a reflexion of recent (range from 6 to 8 months) exposure in the Mekong Subregion.

P. Ranjan & U. Ghoshal
Parasitology Research, September 2016, Volume 115, Issue 9, pp 3375–3385

Though demonstration of Plasmodium parasite in peripheral blood on microscopy remains gold standard, it may miss some patients resulting in delay in instituting life-saving therapy.

Seroepidemiology of Plasmodium species infections in Zimbabwean population

Seth A. Amanfo, Takafira Mduluza, Nicholas Midzi, David R. Cavanagh and Francisca Mutapi
Malaria Journal 2016 15:267, 10 May 2016

There is evidence of a higher exposure to the non-falciparum parasite species than previously reported in Zimbabwe.
