Last week at MalariaWorld: Mesa launches MESA track

MalariaWorld Journal (MWJ) is our own peer reviewed scientific journal on malaria. You don’t pay to publish, and you don’t pay to read. Read about MW and how you can submit your manuscript here.

MESA Track was launched in November 2014, during the conference of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH). It is a platform to share research projects focused on malaria elimination and eradication. A living database that has been developed in close collaboration with partners working on malaria elimination. Read more about MESA Track here.

This week there is a new publication in the MalariaWorld Journal. The search for new antimalarial drugs is urgently needed, especially drugs that can impede the heme detoxification pathway in the malaria parasite, a crucial requirement for parasite survival in host erythrocytes. Water infusions of Artemisia annua plants from two different origins, Cameroon and Luxembourg, were used in this study. Read: HPLC separation and in vitro antimalarial studies of Artemisia annua plants from two different origins: Cameroon versus Luxembourg.
