Plasmodium vivax invasion of reticulocytes relies on distinct receptor-ligand interactions between the parasite and host erythrocytes.
In children aged 6–18 months living in malaria-endemic settings, LAZ, WAZ, and WLZ do not predict malaria incidence.
The clinical malaria incidence and anaemia prevalence were similar in the four study groups.
CYP2D6 phenotype or activity score based on the allele classification was not a major contributor to P. vivax relapse in this ADF cohort.
The population pharmacokinetic models developed for both AS/DHA and MQ showed a large variability in drug exposure in the investigated African paediatric population.
Seroreactivity at a major hospital in Southwest India reveals antibody responses to P. falciparum and P. vivax in a low malaria transmission region with much migration.
This training-through-research programme successfully involved SJCH staff and community members in a practical research exercise on malaria during pregnancy.
The lack of clarity from COI sequence analysis highlights potential challenges of species identification within species complexes.
The global malaria burden has decreased over the last decade and many nations are attempting elimination. Asymptomatic malaria infections are not normally diagnosed or treated, posing a major hurdle for elimination efforts. One solution to this problem is mass drug administration (MDA), with success depending on adequate population participation. Here, we present a detailed spatial and temporal analysis of malaria episodes and asymptomatic infections in four villages undergoing MDA in Myanmar.
