The ethanol extract of H. articulatus proved to be promising as anti-malarial medicine and showed low toxicity.
The results indicate that the use of primaquine among men with G6PDd who are infected by P. vivax represents a heavy burden on the public health service of Brazil.
The present study describes, for the first time, the natural infection of P. simium in capuchin monkeys from the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
This article provides several contributions. From a methodological perspective, the benefits of jointly modelling multiple pathogens for spatial predictions were illustrated.
The development of modular constructs that include antigenic regions targeted by protective immune responses is an attractive approach for subunit vaccine development.
A study searching for Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum DNA among blood donors from the non-endemic area in Brazil reported a rate of 7.41%. This number is at least three times higher than what has been observed in blood donors from the Amazon, an endemic area concentrating >99% of all malaria cases in Brazil.
Severe malaria cases were frequent among imported cases in Brazil outside of the Amazon area.
This is the first study to describe patients with DDX39B and IL6 SNPs who had vivax malaria.
Quantification of parasite density is an important component in the diagnosis of malaria infection.
This study evaluated the influence of infection by Plasmodium vivax on the relations between hematological and biochemical variables and the osmotic stability of the erythrocyte membrane in a Brazilian Amazon population.
