Three of 95 samples from Vietnamese people believed to be infected with P. malariae were also positive for P. knowlesi by PCR. These findings extend the number of countries in Southeast Asia with reports of human P. knowlesi infections.
This paper describes the results of experimental hut trials to investigate the efficacy of a variety of insecticide-treated nets. The local vector population is partially resistant to multiple pyrethroid insecticides and so the rational behind the study was to determine whether the nets were still effective against resistant mosquitoes.
This review summarizes the current status and the challenges to effective surveillance, and suggests approaches for improvement.
The dosage recommended for children may need to be reviewed and the usefulness of the coadministration with food should be determined. Establishing safety and efficacy of this treatment in pregnancy remains a priority.
This study reports an initial survey of the molecular organization of the pericentric heterochromatin in nonmodel species from the A. maculipennis subgroup.
The result suggests that the OPRT–OMPDC enzyme complex might have kinetic benefits and thermal stability significantly different from the monofunctional enzyme.
The present attempt is made to study and compare the fecundity of the differentially susceptible members of the An. culicifacies complex.
In this study we further investigated the mechanisms mediating the destruction of nEs in the development of severe malarial anaemia and the possible involvement of RAP-2/RSP-2 and other members of the low molecular weight rhoptry complex (RAP-1: rhoptry-associated protein-1 and RAP-3: rhoptry-associated protein-3).
In the search for new plant-derived anti-malarial compounds, chromatographic fractions of chloroform extract of whole plants of Artemisia maciverae were tested in vivo using chloroquine resistant and chloroquine sensitive Plasmodium berghei NK 65 infected Swiss albino mice.
This study aimed to examine the care-seeking choices for treatment of a febrile illness compatible with malaria in the public and private sectors in Lao PDR.
