ResearchA study on the profile of naturally acquired antibodies against synthetic peptides of regions of merozoite protein 2, a potential vaccine candidate.
ResearchA focused effort to evaluate the two new methods of quantifying the prevalence of malaria parasites in population studies: an analytic method using latent class models and a laboratory approach using one-step pooling of specimens.
ResearchInteresting findings from structured interventions to improve malaria case management in a very low-transmission setting.
ResearchAn important series of investigations that follow on from recent papers associating the metabolism of primaquine by human CYP2D6 with the clinical response to primaquine.
ResearchThis study of gametocytaemia in pregnant Malawian women suggests that pregnant women are a significant reservoir of gametocyte transmission and should not be overlooked in eradication efforts.
ResearchRapid diagnostic tests largely account for the scale-up of malaria diagnosis in endemic settings. However, diversity in labelling including the instructions for use limits their interchangeability and user-friendliness. This paper outlines guidelines for improving labelling and instructions for use
Aims & scope
Malaria Journal is aimed at the scientific community interested in malaria in its broadest sense. It is the only journal that publishes exclusively articles on malaria and, as such, it aims to bring together knowledge from the different specialities involved in this very broad discipline, from the bench to the bedside and to the field. Malaria Journal offers a fast publication schedule while maintaining rigorous peer-review; this is achieved by managing the whole of the publication process electronically, from submission to peer-review.
