The maternal RDT sample was negative, while the infant RDT was positive; in both cases microscopy of blood smears and PCR showed infection with P. falciparum.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Plasmodium falciparum malaria during pregnancy is responsible for deleterious consequences for the mother and her child.
CryPH, containing a signal peptide and PH domain, is predominantly expressed in zygotes and ookinetes and is localized to crystalloid bodies in P. yoelii.
Lactic acidosis in SMA does not appear to be consistently associated with the high prevalence of any mitochondrial gene variant.
The deadliest complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection is cerebral malaria (CM), with a case fatality rate of 15 to 25% in African children despite effective antimalarial chemotherapy.
This work exploits a direct and reproducible assay for measuring P. falciparum translation, demonstrating its value in the continued study of protein synthesis in malaria and its inhibition as a drug target.
One of the major complications of malaria due to Plasmodium falciparum is hemolytic anemia. The generalized military-political crisis of 2013 in the country has led to the dysfunction of the health system, thus promoting the resurgence of cases of diseases including malaria in Bagassou. The objective of this study was to describe the epidemiological aspects of anemia during the malaria of the Child in Bangassou.
Human complement is the first line of defense against invading pathogens, including the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
