ReviewAn extensive review of compounds derived from African medicinal plants that have antiplasmodial/antimalarial activity.
ResearchInsecticidal effectiveness of a brand of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN), Permanet 2.0, after up to 32 months of field use in Ethiopia.
ResearchThis analysis extends previous descriptions of severe ¿imported malaria¿ in adults, and thus is of value for understanding the range of features and outcomes of the disease.
Case reportA concise case report and brief review of an uncommon mixed malarial infection with P. falciparum and P. ovale in a returned traveller from West Africa. This case is an important reminder for clinicians to take into consideration the possibility of another species of malaria as a cause for fever in a returned traveller even after a first infection has been successfully treated.
CommentaryThe concise paper addressing drug quality and pharmaceutical management in conjunction with reduced artemisinin efficacy in Guyana and Suriname is a useful contribution to size up this problem.
ResearchAn assessment of LLIN efficacy was conducted in high and low resistance areas, showing that the resistance of malaria vectors has not so far affected the impact of LLINs. The use of LLINs was associated with reduced malaria prevalence irrespective of the level of resistance.
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.
