The mosquito An. darlingi larval habitats were found in different hydrological types.
T14 was effective for opportune elimination of the primary blood infection and preventing relapse episodes.
Housing conditions and malaria preventive practices have improved in these rural areas in 17 years, which could be in favor of malaria elimination in this area.
Plasmodium vivax circumsporozoite protein gene polymorphism was investigated using polymerase chain reaction amplification and restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP), and Sanger sequencing in isolates from the Pacific Ocean coast of Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru.

Deferral requirements should be relaxed for presenting donors who traveled to areas within Mexico that confer exceptionally small risks for malaria, such as Quintana Roo.
The polymorphism of Pvs25 and Pvs28 ookinete surface proteins, their association to circumsporozoite protein repeat (CSPr) genotypes (Vk210 and Vk247) and their infectivity to local Anopheles albimanus and Anopheles pseudopunctipennis were investigated in Plasmodium vivax-infected blood samples obtained from patients in Southern Mexico.
