ReviewAn ambitious review on infection with non-typhoid salmonella in African children with severe malarial anaemia. The paper merges bacteriological, parasitological and immunological data from humans and animal models into an interesting hypothesis whereby the splenic function of young children would be altered during acute/subacute P. falciparum infection explaining the increased incidence of NTS co-infection.
ResearchAn evaluation the impact of enhanced malaria control measures on malariometric and red cell indices in children below 14 years of age in Muea, in the Mount Cameroon Region.
ResearchAn important question concerning the pathology of cerebral malaria is addressed by looking at the adhesion and var gene transcription of patient isolates.
ResearchThree experimental capsule suspension (CS) formulations of the organophosphate pirimiphos-methyl were evaluated together with Actellic 50 EC, an emulsifiable concentrate (EC) of pirimiphos-methyl, and the pyrethroid ICON 10 CS, a lambda-cyhalothrin CS formulation, in an experimental hut trial.
ResearchLongitudinal study of the role of main malaria vectors in the Kilombero Valley in Tanzania. The study is interesting with a huge number of mosquitoes collected and tested, detecting a shift in vector composition in favour of An. funestus and An. arabiensis whereas An. gambiae has nearly disappeared.
ReviewResidual malaria transmission includes all forms of transmission that can persist after achieving full population-wide coverage with effective LLINs and/or IRS. This impressive review recommends that national programmes start assessing options for addressing residual transmission under programmatic conditions.
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.
