The GIS application and scan statistical technique can provide means to detect spatial, temporal, and spatiotemporal distribution of malaria, as well as to identify malaria high-risk areas.
A high frequency of kdr gene mutations from population of An. sinensis in Henan province was found.
The survey revealed that the kdr occurrence and accumulation in the An. sinensis populations were more frequent in central China than in the other regions, suggesting that the kdr mutations may contribute significantly to the pyrethroid resistance in the mosquitoes in central China.
Temperature, duration of sunshine and precipitation played important roles in malaria incidence with effects delayed and varied across lags.
By the end of 2013, nineteen of 24 provincial laboratories have been included in the network. In the study, a total of 168 staff were registered and there was no bias in their age, gender, education level, and position.
Imported malaria has been a great challenge for public health in China due to decreased locally transmitted cases and frequent exchange worldwide.
In recent years, there has been a substantial increase of imported Plasmodium vivax incidence in Henan Province.
Plasmodium vivax isolates from subtropical and temperate zones of China are shown to have dramatically different frequencies and patterns of mutations in pvdhfr, pvdhps, and pvmdr-1.
Chemical investigation of the organic extract obtained from the sponge Plakortis simplex collected in the South China Sea afforded five new polyketide endoperoxides (2 and 4–7), along with two known analogues (1 and 3).
The use of the BCC strategy significantly improved the ability of mountain workers in Hainan to avoid malarial infection.
