The potential spread of antimalarial drug resistance to Africa, in particular for artemisinins and key partner drugs, is a major concern.
Antibodies to the key parasite invasion ligands PvDBPII and PvEBPII are good correlates of protection against P. vivax malaria in PNG
Acute interstitial nephritis and podocyte foot-process effacement might be under-recognized lesions in MARF
Added to community-based basic malaria control measures, 3 monthly rounds of DP MDA reduced the incidence and prevalence of falciparum malaria over a 1-year period in areas affected by artemisinin resistance.
The Plasmodium falciparum var gene family encodes ∼60 surface antigens by which parasites escape the host immune responses via clonal expression of var genes.
This study gives an update on G6PD deficiency among Congolese children.
Majority of the community members recognized presence of mosquito swarms in their communities but did not associate these swarms with mosquito mating.
These findings emphasize the impact of environmental variables (e.g., sunlight exposure) on the residual efficacy of Bti and Bs biolarvicides in the field.
This study confirmed that reservoir-associated factors (distance from reservoir shoreline, monthly average reservoir water level, monthly water level change) were important predictors of increased malaria incidence in villages around Ethiopian dams in all elevation settings.
