Defining the trend in genotypes related to drug resistance is essential for the control of malaria in Vietnam.
A study which documents the association of placental malaria with restricted postnatal growth independent of low birthweight, a well-known cause of neonatal and infant mortality.
The manuscript contains valuable data on Anopheline species prevalence and their infection status in malaria epidemic-prone area in Bangladesh.
The need to identify biologically relevant and protective peptide sequences from Plasmodium falciparum proteins remains a very important area in malaria vaccine studies.
A useful contribution on severe vivax malaria in one municipality of the state of Rondonia in the Brazilian Amazon. This paper is a reminder that there is currently no WHO definition of severe vivax malaria, a disease substantially different from falciparum malaria.
