The factors contributing to anaemia in falciparum malaria were characterized in 1261 prospectively studied children in an endemic area of southwestern Nigeria.
To assess the incidence of imported malaria in children and to determine the frequency of delayed diagnosis and risk factors for severe malaria, we performed a retrospective multicenter cohort study in the northern region of France and included all children with a positive test for malaria from 2000 to 2006.
These tests should be considered as a good alternative to microscopy, allowing not only an efficient and rapid diagnosis of malaria in primary health facilities but also to aid in promoting changes for antimalarial prescription behavior.
We develop, fit and validate a non-spatial dynamic model driven by meteorological conditions that can capture seasonal malaria transmission dynamics at the village level in a malaria holoendemic area of north-western Burkina Faso.
The aim of this study was to describe temporal trends for malaria and all-cause mortality by combining a series of clinical and intervention studies conducted in Burkina Faso.
Quantitative PCR is a useful method for evaluating vaccine induced cell mediated immune responses in frozen PBMC from children in a malaria endemic country.
These data on age interactions with ITN use suggest that larger scale studies on the long term individual outcomes should be undertaken if the policy of targeted ITN use for vulnerable groups is to continue.
This study was undertaken to observe the changes in coagulation and platelet profile, and findings were correlated with their outcome.
We investigated the relationship between rosetting and clinical malaria in 209 Malian children enrolled in a case-control study of severe malaria.
Both AL and DP were safe and well tolerated for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria in young HIV-infected and uninfected children.
