Open Access | Effects of mefloquine and artesunate mefloquine on the emergence, clearance and sex ratio of Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes in malarious children

Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2009, 8:297 (16 December 2009)

Addition of artesunate to mefloquine significantly modified the emergence, clearance, and densities of gametocytes and has short-lived, but significant, sex ratio modifying effects in children from this endemic area.

Open Access | Modeling the risk of malaria for travellers to areas with stable malaria transmission

Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2009, 8:296 (16 December 2009)

Risk estimates based on mathematical modeling based on accurate data can be a valuable tool in assessing risk/benefits and cost/benefits when deciding on the value of interventions for travellers to malaria endemic regions.

The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical utility of whole blood angiopoietin (ANG) levels as biomarkers of disease severity in Plasmodium falciparum malaria.

Open Access | A comparative study of a flow-cytometry-based assessment of in vitro Plasmodium falciparum drug sensitivity

Although flow cytometric equipment is expensive, the necessary reagents are inexpensive, the procedure is simple and rapid, and the cell volume required is minimal. This should allow field studies using fingerprick sample volumes.

Open Access | Evaluation of the Palutop+4 malaria rapid diagnostic test in a non-endemic setting
