To assess the incidence of imported malaria in children and to determine the frequency of delayed diagnosis and risk factors for severe malaria, we performed a retrospective multicenter cohort study in the northern region of France and included all children with a positive test for malaria from 2000 to 2006.
These tests should be considered as a good alternative to microscopy, allowing not only an efficient and rapid diagnosis of malaria in primary health facilities but also to aid in promoting changes for antimalarial prescription behavior.
Antiplasmodial and analgesic activities of leaf extract and fractions of Acalypha wilkensiana were evaluated to ascertain the folkloric claim of its antimalarial and analgesic activities.
To provide a CSP-based candidate vaccine, we investigated recombinant CSP and NANP conjugates of various peptide lengths, with different N-terminal amino acids, bound at different ratios to various carrier proteins.
Further data on an interesting new approach for biological mosquito larval control.
A systematic review and meta-analysis examining the association between anti-merozoite antibody responses and incidence of Plasmodium falciparum malaria by Freya Fowkes and colleagues aids identification of antigens that confer protection from malaria.
In the third in a series of articles on the changing nature of global health institutions, Gerald Keusch and colleagues examine institutional arrangements for malaria research
This is the first attempt to build a comprehensive directory of potential transcription-associated proteins in Plasmodium.
We propose a new method that uses gene expression data to assess inter-species annotation transfers.
