Gestational malaria is a multi-factorial syndrome leading to poor outcomes for both the mother and foetus.
To evaluate the accuracy in the oocyst counting with the improved technique, mosquitoes were infected with the green fluorescent protein (GFP)-expressing parasite.
A retrospective examination was made from archival data which provided the complete enumeration of An. arabiensis breeding habitats in three distinct geographic zones - extending North-east, West and South of the island over 14 years, from January 1996 to December 2009.
Environmental factors and their alteration are associated with the occurrence and spatial distribution of malaria cases in rural settlements.
Although RDTs had low sensitivity and specificity, which varied widely depending on fever and parasite density, using RDTs reduced over-treatment with anti-malarials significantly.
The results of this study suggest that the SYBR Green-based real-time PCR assay could be used as an alternative gold standard method in a reference setting.
Insect chitinase 5 (Cht5), a well-characterized enzyme found in the molting fluid and/or integument, is classified as a group I chitinase and is usually encoded by a single gene.
Anopheles darlingi depends on forested regions for their larval and adult survival.
Malaria is a major health problem with P. vivax becoming a predominant species in the town.
Pharmacokinetic models were constructed for artemisone and artemiside in Pheroid™ vesicle formulations. The compounds were administered at a dose of 50.0 mg/kg bodyweight to C57 BL/6 mice via an oral gavage tube and blood samples were collected by means of tail-bleeding.
