ResearchAcute Kidney Injury is a major factor for the outcome of the survival of the patients. There is a need for finding out new biomarkers which should be easy, simple and inexpensive to replace serum creatinine estimation, which takes time and is very late to rise. This study is a step in the right direction.
ResearchIn Dielmo and Ndiop, two villages of Senegal with different malaria endemicity, infections have been followed longitudinally for 20 years. Overall seroprevalence to a schizont extract decreased between 2000 and 2010 in both villages: while the difference between Dielmo and Ndiop had been highly significant in 2000, it was no longer so in 2010.

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.
