MalariaWorldThe reduction in malaria prevalence in young children observed between 1999 and 2009 in a rural and formerly malaria holoendemic area of Burkina Faso is likely attributable to the increase in ITN availability and utilization over time.

Open Access | The plasticity of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytaemia in relation to age in Burkina Faso

The findings of this study suggest that although gametocytes are most commonly detected in children, the proportion of asexual parasites that is committed to develop into gametocytes may increase with age. These findings underscore the importance of adults for the human infectious reservoir for malaria.

A verandah trap experimental hut trial of ITPS with or without Olyset LN was conducted in the Vallee du Kou near Bobo-Dioulasso, where the two molecular forms of Anopheles gambiae s.s., S (frequency 65%) and M (frequency 35%), occur.

Open Access | Accuracy of a rapid diagnostic test on the diagnosis of malaria infection and of malaria - attributable fever during low and high transmission season in Burkina Faso

In the dry season the RDT has a low positive predictive value, but a very high negative predictive value for malaria-attributable fever. In the rainy season the negative test safely excludes malaria in adults but not in children.

We examine variants in HBB that have been shown to be protective against malaria and test whether these are associated with the transmission of the parasite from the human host to the Anopheles vector.

Several cases of malaria are frequently recorded during the dry period in Ouagadougou town (Burkina Faso). This has led to the design of a series of studies focusing on both parasitological and entomological investigations intended to provide relevant health data on the risk of local malaria transmission according to the way of urbanisation.

The weak association of pfmdr1/pfcrt alleles with amodiaquine treatment outcome suggests further factors to be involved in the unsatisfactory low efficacy of the drug and limits the usefulness of these markers in this area.
