ResearchChange in knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) in relation to repellent use was assessed before and after the implementation of a cluster randomized clinical trial on topical repellents in rural Tanzania. High acceptability indicates the feasibility of using repellent for malaria control in this community.
ResearchA study that provides important data about the prevalence of molecular markers suspect to be associated to CQ and SP resistance in Plasmodium vivax in two malaria endemic areas in China.
ResearchDescribes the role of evidence, barriers and facilatory factors to the updake of evidence in malaria treatment policy change in Uganda.
ResearchA study to validate assumptions about the length of the distribution¿replacement cycle for long-lasting insecticidal nets in Rwanda. When net integrity was taken into account, LLIN survivorship was significantly lower than predicted, suggesting that net serviceable life was actually closer to two, rather than three years.
ResearchThe authors present a new cellular assay designed to identify small molecule inhibitors that block the Coenzyme A pathway in malaria in parasites. Specifically, the authors take compounds that block parasite proliferation and then further test to see if compounds show a shift in potency in the presence of coenzyme A. The identify several compounds that they predict are exerting their action through this pathway.
ResearchSummary of an application of two methods to estimate the impact of behaviour-change communication exposure on net use. The analyses facilitate discussion of methodological evaluation issues as well as programme implications.
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.
