ResearchA standard in vivo protocol is used to estimate Plasmodium vivax resistance to chloroquine in Bolivia. It is useful information to complete the map of P. vivax CQ-resistance in the Americas.
ResearchResults of a baseline malaria survey among school children in Ghana. The authors report that 50% of children are infected with P. falciparum, with high rates of moderate anaemia and evidence for heterogeneity in malaria indices.
ResearchLLINs offered the local population only a partial protection against malaria vector bites. The overlap of early biting habit of vectors and human activity indicates that additional methods of vector control are required to limit transmission. Regular surveillance of both vector behaviour and domestic human-behaviour patterns are needed in the planning of control interventions in each region.
ResearchTherapeutic efficacy of artemether-lumefantrine (AL) for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria was assessed in north-western Ethiopia. Eighty patients were enrolled and all of them completed the 28-day follow-up period. Parasite clearance times in this study indicate no imminent threat of artemisinin resistance in the region.
ResearchA very creative use of Photovoice. The study involved a 15-week project with 44 Palawan school-going children in the Philippines. The primary aim was to critically examine how facilitating children to take their own pictures of malaria could alter their understanding of it.
ResearchA nice study on Anopheles calderoni from southwest Colombia, a poorly studied malaria vector. The manuscript provides information on its distribution, biting patterns, seasonal abundance and infectivity rate.
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.
