A marked decline of the A. gambiae s.s. population occurred as household ownership of bed nets rose in a region of western Kenya over a 10 year period.
Anti-DDT propaganda typically claimed that insecticide caused all manner of harm to human health. Readily embraced and trumpeted by the popular press, the claims, in reality, never satisfied even the most minimal cause-effect criteria. These criteria are discussed in depth.
This study explored stakeholders' perceptions of the role of private medicine retailers (PMRs), the value and feasibility of programme goals, perceived programme impact, factors influencing implementation and recommendations in three districts of Kenya.
We investigated here the hypothesis that the delayed acquisition of immunity to malaria could be related to a worm-induced Th2 drive on antimalarial immune responses.
The aim of this study is to compare population hemoglobin mean and anemia prevalence to established indicators of malaria endemicity, including parasite rates, rates of enlarged spleens in children, and records of (presumptive) malaria diagnosis among populations living with different levels of malaria transmission.
The interaction between mosquito niche space and microclimate along elevational gradients indicates worrisome potential for climate and land use changes to exacerbate malaria resurgence in the east African highlands. Nevertheless, it is possible to direct interventions precisely to ameliorate potential impacts.
In this study we test for the effect of the antimalarial-drug primaquine on the survival probability of wild birds infected by the malaria-like parasite Haemoproteus.
We identified a third AcB strain, AcB62 that also carries the PklrI90N mutation. However, AcB62 mice were susceptible to P.chabaudi infection and showed high levels of parasite replication (54–62% peak parasitemia).
A Phase 1 trial was conducted in malaria-naïve adults to evaluate the recombinant protein vaccine apical membrane antigen 1-Combination 1 (AMA1-C1) formulated in Montanide® ISA 720 (SEPPIC, France), a water-in-oil adjuvant.
A cross-sectional study was conducted during the period of August 2007–April 2008 at Al-Wahda Teaching Hospital in Yemen to investigate prevalence and risk factors for placental malaria and anaemia and their effects on birthweight.
