Both the Fludora® Fusion combination and clothianidin alone showed very good and lasting efficacy for IRS against resistant Anopheles with some residual benefit provided by the combination.
Artemisinin resistance was observed to be rapidly increasing and spreading northwards through Laos and has now reached the Chinese border.
Text-message reminders to HWs can provide a platform to improve understanding of treatment guidelines and case management decision-making skills, but might not improve actual adherence to guidelines.
This study presents results from the first large-scale malaria cross-sectional survey from Namibia using molecular testing to characterize subpatent infections.
Caregivers should be educated on the importance of promptly seeking care at a health facility where appropriate care can be provided.
Although the Plasmodium isolates from Yunnan Province and those from Myanmar were collected from different sites, they still belong to the same geographical population.
These findings call into question the appropriateness of current methods of assessing host preferences among disease vectors and have important implications for strategizing vector control.
The SUN dipstick had reasonable sensitivity and excellent specificity when used to diagnose KD in a cohort of patients with malaria in a resource-limited setting.
The study suggests that several SNPs in the human genome that exist in Sri Lankan populations are significantly associated with anti-malarial antibodies, either with generation and/or maintenance of antibodies for longer periods, which can be due to either individual polymorphisms or most probably a combined effect of the markers.
