A high frequency of kdr gene mutations from population of An. sinensis in Henan province was found.
Herein we have clarified the trend of P. vivax in China from 2004–2012, and made some analysis for the differences of imported vivax back from different regions. There are significantly different of P. vivax between Southeast Asia and Africa, also the difference was observed for different regions in Africa.
Plasmodium vivax can cause severe and even fatal disease, but there is recent increase in reports over the past 15 years with larger series restricted to a limited number of geographical areas.
In addition to containing their high-quality analysis, their Article proposes a set of methods to explore resistance to antimalarial drugs in vivax malaria and highlights a surprising scarcity of data and methods available to work on P vivax.
Malaria transmission-blocking vaccines (TBVs) represent a promising approach for the elimination and eradication of this disease. AnAPN1 is a lead TBV candidate that targets a surface antigen on the midgut of the obligate vector of the Plasmodium parasite, the Anopheles mosquito. In this study, we demonstrate that antibodies targeting AnAPN1 block transmission of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax across distantly related anopheline species in malaria endemic countries.
Although relapse and asymptomatic parasite carriage might influence the population structure to some extent, our results suggested the continual introduction of P. vivax into South Korea through other parasite population sources.
We review historical records to examine the association between relapses of Plasmodium vivax and febrile infectious diseases.
We demonstrate that malaria patients display a significant reduction in circulating DC numbers and the concurrent accumulation of immature cells.
These findings indicate that the current malaria control program should be carefully reconsidered, in terms of, individual instruction, current chemoprophylaxis program regimens, and schedules to improve the efficacy of prophylaxis in the ROK military.
The assay allowed the analysis of phagocytosis rapidly and with low subjective error, and the differentiation between phagocytosed p- and np-RBCs in the same sample.
