Multiplex QPCR but not ICTs are an essential adjunct to microscopy in the reference laboratory detection of malaria species specifically due to the superior LOD.
Given the conflicting results of the effects of zooprophylaxis from previous studies, other community-based preventive measures, such as bed nets, coils and insecticide house-spraying, may be of more benefit.
In this study, three new high-throughput 'closed-tube' assays were developed and compared with the previously described AS-PCR technique.
Inadequate surveillance and gross under-reporting has been highlighted time and again for over three decades. As a result the huge problem of malaria in pregnancy reported occasionally by researchers has remained hidden.
Should the Kalimbe (a traditional Amerindian loincloth) be banned, based on its association with an increased risk of malaria?
The use of PG microassays on detergent-free, haemoglobin-depleted samples appears as the best choice both for the detection of Plasmodium in low-density infections and anti-malarial drugs tests.
This study confirmed that the relapse pattern in Camopi was compatible with the pattern described for the P. vivax Chesson (tropical) strain.
A 20 year-old healthy female volunteer participated in a clinical Phase I and IIa safety and efficacy trial with candidate malaria vaccine PfLSA-3-rec adjuvanted with aluminium hydroxide.
Here we present a nationwide assessment of changes over 10 years in paediatric malaria hospitalization across Kenya.
