Not Open Access | The rise and fall of malaria in a west African rural community, Dielmo, Senegal, from 1990 to 2012: a 22 year longitudinal study

May 20, 2014 - 16:56 -- NOT Open Access
Jean-François Trape, Adama Tall, Christophe Rogier, et al
The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Volume 14, Issue 6, June 2014, Pages 476-488

We monitored and analysed the changes in malaria epidemiology in a village community in Senegal, west Africa, over 22 years.


Not Open Access | Potential use of Neem Leaf Slurry as a Sustainable Dry Season Management Strategy to Control the Malaria Vector Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae) in West African Villages

November 20, 2012 - 17:00 -- NOT Open Access
Kyphuong Luong, Florence V. Dunkel, Keriba Coulibaly and Nancy E. Beckage
Journal of Medical Entomology 49(6):1361-1369. 2012

We tested the hypothesis that neem leaf slurry is a sustainable, natural product, anopheline larvicide. A field study conducted in Sanambele (Mali) in 2010 demonstrated neem leaf slurry can work with only the available tools and resources in the village.


SNP Genotyping Identifies New Signatures of Selection in a Deep Sample of West African Plasmodium falciparum Malaria Parasites

Alfred Amambua-Ngwa, Daniel J. Park, Stephen F. Schaffner, et al.
Molecular Biology and Evolution, Volume 29, Issue 11 Pp. 3249-3253.

MalariaWorldWe discuss the value of deep population-specific genomic analyses for identifying selection signals within sampled endemic populations of parasites, which may correspond to local selection pressures such as distinctive therapeutic regimes or mosquito vectors.
