We investigated associations between caspase-12 genotype and malarial parameters in three West-African populations, in studies encompassing immunological, clinical and obstetric data.
Our findings suggest that PK factors contributed to the observed high rate of treatment failure, and we therefore recommend a higher SP dose for children under the age of 5 years.
The result is that one appropriate conjugate has potent and selective activity against two of the most deadly diseases in the world.

Physiological characteristics of insects can influence their susceptibility to fungal infection of which age and nutritional status are among the most important.
Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are known to be responsible for genetic complexities and play major roles in gene and genome evolution.
This article focuses on the life of American science writer and microbiologist Paul de Kruif, and his dealing with various malaria topics. A case is made for the role of science journalists in driving the application of newly generated knowledge in the real world of malaria control.
Discipline-specific Malaria Eradication Research Agenda (malERA) Consultative Groups have recognized several cross-cutting issues that must be addressed to prevent repetition of some of the mistakes of past malaria elimination campaigns in future programs.
