ResearchDescribes routine patient data collected over a five year period from one hospital in an understudied geographical area of Angola.
ResearchCelTOS, a protein critical for parasite cell traversal in both the mammalian host and mosquito vector, has been shown to elicit protective antibody and cell-mediated immunity in the murine malaria model and to be recognized by T-cells of volunteers immunized with irradiated sporozoites.
ResearchDeletion of the histidine-rich protein 2 gene in field isolates of Plasmodium falciparum, may result in false negative test results when PfHRP2-based rapid diagnostic tests are used for malaria diagnosis. This study looked at gene deletions in isolates from Honduras.
ResearchThis study shows that education programmes can improve net usage, but should also attempt to change behaviour regarding net care and maintenance.
ResearchThis paper on the impact of livestock on malaria vectors is very timely in the light of increasing interest to address residual malaria transmission maintained by more exophilic vectors.
ResearchRwanda has achieved a significant malaria burden reduction in the past ten years. This paper addresses the subject of malaria parasite carriage, evaluating associated risk factors among asymptomatic household members in a rural community in Rwand, which is important in view of current malaria elimination efforts.
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.
