Anti-malarial drug-resistant parasites should be closely monitored in the area along the Thai- Cambodian border.
The results provide insights into the genetic diversity of Pfhrp2 and Pfhrp3 genes among Indian P. falciparum population and its relation to RDT sensitivity.
Delayed resolution of parasitaemia after AM treatment increased in eastern Thailand between 1997 and 2007, which may be an early manifestation of decreased artesunate susceptibility.
The objective of this study was to search for metabolic changes/fingerprints of CM and identify the pathways that might be differentially altered in mice that succumbed to CM. The results show that brain, liver, and sera exhibit unique metabolic fingerprints for CM over NCM mice.
With the intention of investigating the DNA strand displacement properties of Plasmodium falciparum helicase PfeIF4A (formerly known as PfH45) a codon-optimized gene for expression in Escherichia coli has been produced. Several histidine-containing proteins with intrinsic helicase activity were captured from the bacterial sonicate by initial Ni2+-chromatography.
We applied retrospectively the UK pH1N1/09 case definition to a unique cohort of healthy adult volunteers exposed to Plasmodium falciparummalaria or influenza to assess the predictive value of this case definition, and to explore the distinguishing clinical features of early phase infection with these pathogens under experimental conditions.
We report the discovery of new potent inhibitors of the growth of Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine (CQ)-resistant W2 strain.
This new RDT performs similarly well as other commercially available tests (especially the CareStart Malaria[TRADE MARK SIGN] test, used as comparator), and conforms to the World Health Organization's recommendations for RDT performance. It is a good alternative tool for the diagnosis of malaria in endemic areas.
Ubiquitin-dependent protein degradation within malarial parasites is a burgeoning field of interest due to several encouraging reports of proteasome inhibitors that were able to confer antimalarial activity.
Resistance is a constant challenge for anti-infective drug development.
