Open Access | Comparison of infant malaria incidence in districts of Maputo province, Mozambique

April 23, 2011 - 07:53 -- Kabogo Ndegwa
Author(s): 
Orlando P Zacarias, Peter Majlender
Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2011, 10:93 (17 April 2011)

The model revealed a spatial and temporal pattern of malaria incidence. These patterns were found to exhibit a stable malaria transmission in most non-coastal districts.

Teun Bousema and Chris Drakeley
Reference: 
Clin. Microbiol. Rev., Apr 2011; 24: 377 - 410.

We discuss how the application of molecular techniques has led to the identification of submicroscopic gametocyte carriage and to a reassessment of the human infectious reservoir.

Open Access | A method of active case detection to target reservoirs of asymptomatic malaria and gametocyte carriers in a rural area in Southern Province, Zambia

October 8, 2010 - 07:21 -- Kabogo Ndegwa
Author(s): 
Stresman GH, Kamanga A, Moono P, Hamapumbu H, Mharakurwa S, Kobayashi T, Moss WJ, Shiff C
Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2010, 9:265 (4 October 2010)

This pilot project showed that active case detection is feasible and can identify reservoirs of asymptomatic infection. A larger sample size, data over multiple low transmission seasons, and in areas with different transmission dynamics are needed to further validate this approach.
