Non-improved housing predicted malaria infection among U5s in Nigeria. Improved housing is a promising means to support a more integrated and sustainable approach to malaria prevention.
The semi-quantitative method of measuring CRP is cheap, rapid and easy to perform but not useful in predicting parasitemia and malaria.
Areas were identified with temporal and spatial clustering of high malaria incidence in Bangladesh.
This study reveals that subclinical P. falciparum malaria infection is associated with sustained haemolysis and the induction of HO-1.
SEC has a significant impact on the prevalence of malaria fever in the context of different regions in Pakistan.
Self-reported adherence was high for both AL and AQAS, but varied by site.
Pyronaridine–artesunate was well tolerated, efficacious and non-inferior to artemether–lumefantrine for the treatment of uncomplicated P. falciparum malaria in Kenyan children.
The disease burden of Wuchereria bancrofti and Plasmodium falciparum malaria is high, particularly in Africa, and co-infection is common.
Pre- and postnatal lipid-based nutrient supplementation did not alter malaria antibody acquisition during infancy, compared to prenatal supplementation with iron and folic acid or pre- and postnatal supplementation with multiple micronutrients.
Interventions that reduce P. falciparum transmission intensity will not only significantly reduce malaria-diagnosed mortality, but also mortality assigned to other causes in under-5 year old children in endemic areas.
