ResearchA solid undertaking to sequence a number of loci from EBA175 from wild isolates of Plasmodium falciparum. The authors discuss the diversity observed in the context of the migration of early humans, with their parasites, from Africa to Asia.
ResearchThis is a comprehensive report addressing the importance of the longer acting partner drug for development of ACT tolerance/resistance. The work follows up on previous publications by the authors and adds to the understanding of "the window of selection" following treatment with three key artemisinin combinations.
ResearchAn interesting piece of research that could provide useful guidance to community engagement efforts for malaria elimination.
ResearchDespite relatively recent distribution of long-lasting insecticidal bed nets, malaria in Amazonian Peru persists and increased substantially in 2014 compared to previous years. Anopheles darlingi, identified as the main malaria vector, is known for its variable behaviour depending on locality and environment. Evaluating malaria vector biology metrics in relation to environmental data and malaria transmission is of great importance at the local level for a better understanding of disease epidemiological patterns and for defined effective vector control strategies.
ReviewThis review summarizes recent findings regarding the mechanistic aspects of this protection, as mediated through the parasites interaction with abnormal erythrocytes.
ResearchVernonia amygdalina leaves contain molecules affecting multiple stages of Plasmodium, evidencing its potential for drug discovery. Chemical modification of the identified hit molecules, in particular vernodalol, could generate a library of druggable sesquiterpene lactones.
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.
