Open Access | Neopterin and procalcitonin are suitable biomarkers for exclusion of severe Plasmodium falciparum disease at the initial clinical assessment of travellers with imported malaria

Although the diagnostic value of neopterin and procalcitonin is limited, the high negative predictive value of both neopterin and procalcitonin may be helpful for a rapid exclusion of severe malaria disease on admission.

Open Access | Research: Determining utility values related to malaria and malaria chemoprophylaxis

The general public (potential travellers), were more tolerant of taking prophylaxis if associated with no or mild AEs and least tolerant of mild sequelae from malaria and severe drug related events. The rating value reported for taking no prophylaxis was quite variable.

Systematic review: Low-quality evidence that atovaquone-proguanil and doxycycline are better tolerated prophylactic antimalarial regimens in travellers than mefloquine

he scope of this review is the prevention of Plasmodium falciparum, which is the malaria species that causes the overwhelming majority of severe disease and death, and which in many areas of the world is frequently resistant to the classical antimalarial agent chloroquine.
