Our results show that hybrids detected using standard diagnostics will often be hybrid generations beyond F1, and that in our study area around 5% (95% confidence intervals 3%-9%) of apparently 'pure' species samples may also be backcrosses.
In a new study, Coban and colleagues provide new clues on the involvement of the olfactory bulb during experimental cerebral malaria in mice that open the way to testable hypotheses and potentially earlier intervention in humans.
Here we examined Plasmodium falciparum parasites in these sites to assess if the above success has limited diversity and gene flow.
This study revealed conflicting results regarding clinical parameters and cognitive behaviour of children after two rounds of deworming.
The data appears consistent with the methaemoglobin/haem hypothesis in malaria and sepsis pathogenesis.
AS + SP treatment failure was widespread in northeast India and exceeded the threshold for changing drug policy.
Community-based surveillance of day-3 P. falciparum cases is feasible, but highly intensive, and as such needs strong and continuous support, particularly supervision and training.
Intravenous AS can provide much higher peak concentrations of AS when compared to concentrations achieved with oral therapy; this may be crucial for the rapid elimination of parasites in patients with severe malaria.
Severe malaria cases were frequent among imported cases in Brazil outside of the Amazon area.
