ResearchDescribes a high prevalence of submicroscopic parasitaemia and, more importantly, a high prevalence of serologically-positive samples based on a microarray analysis of selected Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax antigens, in adults living in a malaria endemic area of Thailand.
ResearchA paper helping to shed light on the relatively little studied G6PD deficiency gene variants in a Sri Lankan population, and the SNP associations with symptomatic, uncomplicated malaria.
ResearchThis study reports genetic diversity and natural selection of the Duffy binding protein of Plasmodium knowlesi from Borneo Island; the haplotypes found were distinct from those from Peninsular Malaysia.
ResearchStandardization of anti-malarial drug sensitivity assays is a major concern in the field, especially as the need for multicentre drug trials increases.
ResearchPaper that addresses an important area in the literature on rapid diagnostic tests, namely their introduction into the private sector. This is under consideration by a number of national governments and it provides timely findings for the policy community. Using Uganda as a country of investigation is useful as the private sector represents a significant actor in the provision of health care.
ResearchResearch on the use of ACT in the private sector has thus far focused on how to increase confirmatory diagnosis rates and adhering to test results, with little focus on getting people to adhere to the treatment regime. This paper fills an important gap in the literature, as well as providing important information to programme managers.
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.
