Findings on physical examination correlate poorly with true volume status in adults with severe malaria and must be used with caution to guide fluid therapy.

Not Open Access | Increased Carboxyhemoglobin in Adult Falciparum Malaria is Associated With Disease Severity and Mortality

August 7, 2013 - 18:13 -- NOT Open Access

Increased carboxyhemoglobin levels during severe malaria and sepsis may exacerbate organ dysfunction by reducing oxygen carriage and cautions against the use of adjunctive CO therapy, which was proposed on the basis of mouse models.

Haemoglobin dynamics in Papuan and non-Papuan adults in northeast Papua, Indonesia, with acute, uncomplicated vivax or falciparum malaria

June 24, 2013 - 15:24 -- Open Access

Haemoglobin recovery was related to baseline Hb. Vivax-infected malaria immune Papuans had persistently lower Hb concentrations compared to non-Papuans with limited malaria exposure. This haematological disadvantage remains unexplained.

Vivax malaria and bacteraemia: a prospective study in Kolkata, India

While an increased risk was not demonstrated, concomitant bacteraemia occurs frequently in vivax malaria in an area with a high background incidence of bacteraemia, and should be considered in cases of vivax malaria with severe manifestations.

Effective treatment with a tetrandrine/chloroquine combination for chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria in Aotus monkeys

April 3, 2013 - 14:16 -- Open Access
Author(s): 
Ye Z, Van Dyke K, Rossan RN

MalariaWorld

The key question emanating from that study is "would tetrandine and chloroquine be highly effective in a live Aotus monkey model with chloroquine-resistant parasites". This study was designed to closely mimic the pharmacological/anti-malarial activity in man.

We used near-infrared resonance spectroscopy to measure thenar muscle microvascular function (StO2recov) and oxygen consumption (VO2) in 36 adults in Papua, Indonesia, with severe malaria, 33 with moderately severe malaria (MSM), 24 with severe sepsis, and 36 healthy controls.
