Variation in the abundance of indoor-resting Anopheles in rural houses of western Kenya varies with clearly identifiable factors.
For malaria-related research that measure antibodies to multiple antigens with multiplex assays, the natural-log transformation is recommended for data analysis and use of the normalization procedure with multiple pooled controls can improve the precision of antibody measurements.
The results suggest that private demand for nets in Tanzania could potentially supplement future coverage campaigns.
As with any other intervention, there is a risk that resistance will evolve to new genetic approaches to vector control, and steps should be taken to minimize this probability.
Despite past gains, total financing available for malaria in elimination settings is declining.
The overall knowledge of malaria prevention practices among a large proportion of women was found to be low, which implies that the knowledge about the prevention of malaria should be improved upon by both urban and rural dwellers.
Egress of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum from its host red blood cell is a rapid, highly regulated event that is essential for maintenance and completion of the parasite life cycle.
Analysis of the varied developmental pathways exploited by malarial parasites as they pass through their differing life stages can be challenging [1–3], the parasites often adopting mechanisms that differ from the conventional norms of their eukaryotic hosts.
1,2,4-Triazole and 1,3,4-oxadiazole analogues are of interest due to their potential activity against microbial and malarial infections.
Two new series of symmetric acyclic nucleoside bisphosphonates (ANbPs) have been synthesised as potential inhibitors of the Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) and vivax (Pv) 6-oxopurine phosphoribosyltransferases.
