The best configuration of push–pull comprised transfluthrin-treated eave ribbons plus two traps, each at least 15 m from huts.
The metabolic network analysis presented here suggests that P. falciparum invokes specific purine-recycling pathways to compensate for hypoxanthine deprivation and maintains a hypoxanthine pool for purine-based nucleic acid synthesis.
Accurate, low-cost, reagent-free screening of mosquito populations enabled by NIRS could revolutionize surveillance and elimination strategies for the most important human malaria parasite in its primary African vector species.
The use of SNP analysis has similar sensitivity to the standard msp genotyping in determining recrudescence from reinfection.
METs are a sensitive, practical tool for assessing mosquito biting rates and host preferences, and represent a safer alternative to the HLC.
The potential adaptive nature of this manipulation of mosquito behaviour is discussed in the light of previous studies on other malaria models.
This high variability in malaria prevalence is striking, given that this small area (approximately 30 km × 40 km) was purportedly homogeneous based on country-level spatial analysis, suggesting that fine-scale parasitaemia data might be critical to guide district-level programmatic efforts to prevent and control malaria.
Spatiotemporal analysis of an 11 years surveillance data showed that hotspots of malaria cases in Menoreh Hills were continuously located in Purworejo district
The results suggest that the impact of ITNs may be weaker for malaria-infected than for uninfected mosquitoes.
Rapid, low-cost, species-specific diagnosis, based upon DNA testing, is becoming important in the treatment of patients with infectious diseases.
