Planners of malaria radio interventions need to broadcast their messages within the two peak EAT of 12.00-14.00 and 18.00-23.00.
PCR-NALFIA is a sensitive, specific and robust assay able to identify Plasmodium species with good accuracy.
Autophagy is a membrane-mediated degradation process, which is governed by sequential functions of Atg proteins.
Plasmodium falciparum infection was associated with slow parasite clearance and suspected artemisinin resistance at the China-Myanmar border area.
Here we show that the dysregulated microRNA (miRNA) composition, of either heterozygous HbAS or homozygous HbSS erythrocytes, contributes to resistance against P. falciparum.
The control of malaria has been complicated with increasing resistance of malarial parasite against existing antimalarials.
The results of this study will enable us to determine whether original antigenic sin influences malaria incidence, and may reveal an association between a specific immunological response pattern and enhanced protection from a subsequent malaria episode, which can be further explored in identifying candidate vaccine antigens.
Here we describe the use of electroporation mediated DNA immunization to identify important protective epitopes from the large VAR2CSA protein from Plasmodium falciparum implicated in the pathology of placental malaria.
Malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum infects roughly 30,000 individuals in Haiti each year.
The haemozoin-based colorimetric assay can be considered as an alternative, simple, robust, inexpensive and convenient method, making it applicable in developing countries.
