Here, we examined the activation and function of neutrophils during acute episodes of malaria.
Here we show that in-solution hybridization capture can be used to extract P. vivax DNA from human contaminating DNA in the laboratory without the need for on-site leukocyte filtration.
The assay was evaluated using blood samples collected in rainy and dry seasons from febrile patients,in a malaria-endemic area in Thailand. Malaria diagnosis was performed by Giemsa-stained blood smears and 18 S rRNA PCR.
In February 2011, a rare case of congenital Plasmodium vivax malaria was diagnosed in a temperate region of Central China.
Vivax malaria has the highest incidence in central China. High-throughput and cost-effective testing methods are essential for vivax malaria diagnosis in this area.
The present study suggests that Pv12 is immunogenic in humans during parasite infection and it could play an important role in erythrocyte invasion.
The genetic variation of Korean isolates was analysed and recombinant aldolase was evaluated as a serological antigen in Plasmodium vivax malaria.
Recent evidences have demonstrated the importance of Th17 cells in host defense against infectious diseases.
Vivax malaria caused a substantial burden of potentially life-threatening morbidity on a paediatric ward in a hospital in south-eastern Pakistan.
Malaria is a vector-borne infection caused by unicellular parasite of the genus Plasmodium.
