In the present study, the use of CDC light traps showed it to be much more abundant than previously found but there was no evidence to suggest it was a malaria vector in this region.
A mathematical model of erythropoiesis subject to malaria infection is developed by combining ideas from previous models that addressed only one of the two phenomena.
Using affinity purification coupled with mass-spectrometric analysis we identify a messenger ribonucleoprotein (mRNP) from Plasmodium berghei gametocytes defined by DOZI and the Sm-like factor CITH (homolog of worm CAR-I and fly Trailer Hitch).
Finally, our data and that of others indicated that chimpanzees and bonobos maintain malaria parasites, to which humans are susceptible, a factor of some relevance to the renewed efforts to eradicate malaria.
This is an important paper which demonstrates the utility of a mass drug treatment approach to malaria control in areas of relatively high transmission in south-western Cambodia.
The relative effectiveness of various drug combinations was compared by a multi-treatment Bayesian random-effect meta-analysis.
Quassia amara L. (Family Simaroubaceae) is known to have several medicinal properties including the activity against malaria. An HPLC method was employed for purification of the biologically active quassinoids; quassin (Q) and neo-quassin (NQ), further characterized by MALDI-TOF analyses.
A large series of 4-arylcoumarins was synthesized by Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction and evaluated for antiprotozoal activity against Plasmodium falciparum and Leishmania donovani.
In this study, the diversity of Plasmodium vivax populations circulating in Pakistan and Iran has been investigated by using circumsporozoite protein (csp) and merozoite surface proteins 1 and 3α (msp-1 and msp-3α) genes as genetic markers.
The ACSD project did not accelerate child survival in Benin and Mali focus districts relative to comparison areas, probably because coverage for effective treatment interventions for malaria and pneumonia were not accelerated, causes of neonatal deaths and undernutrition were not addressed, and stock shortages of insecticide-treated nets restricted the potential effect of this intervention.
