Children in this community are more likely to be infected with multiple parasites than are adults and should therefore be targeted for prevention and control interventions.
The most vulnerable stages of Plasmodium development occur in the lumen of the mosquito midgut, a compartment shared with symbiotic bacteria.
The findings of this study suggest that even in the presence of an insecticide impregnated bed-net intervention, a number of Anopheles species still play a role in the transmission of malaria.
Plasmodium sporozoites, the infective stage of the malaria parasite, move by gliding motility, a unique form of locomotion required for tissue migration and host cell invasion.
Despite limitations, the grant was implemented until the agreed closing date.
A flow cytometry method based on CMXRos staining for detection of live parasite populations has been optimized.
The scope of this review is to discuss external stimuli in the parasite life cycle and the upstream machinery responsible for translating them into intracellular responses, focussing particularly on the calcium signalling pathway.
The overall pharmacokinetic properties of piperaquine in this study were consistent with previously published reports in non-pregnant patients.
Auto-induction media offers a cost-effective method for the production of Plasmodium SHMTs and should be applicable for other Plasmodium enzymes.
The number of Plasmodium vivaxmalaria cases in the Republic of Korea (ROK) in 2008 was 1009, a 54.2% decrease on the previous year. It then resurged to 1317 cases in 2009 (30.5% increase on 2008).
