ReviewA useful review of the situation of malaria in Mauritania.
ResearchBlood parasites are continuously circulating around the world, and this study suggests that cross infection of feral pigeons with haemoparasites typical of other migratory or nonmigratory bird species is possible. Moreover, the geographical location of Italy along the main migratory routes is a crucial factor to be considered for migratory birds, because they can be affected by blood parasites from feral pigeons, and vice versa.
ReviewThis review provides insights into the prevalence and profile of traditional medicine and traditional healer use for malaria.
ResearchThe authors report an analysis of malaria treatment practices (including the accuracy of clinicians¿ diagnosis and malaria overtreatment) from a larger study on paediatric fevers undertaken at two Kenyan hospitals with different levels of malaria transmission. The differences in adherence to guidelines with respect to transmission levels are the major finding.
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.
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.
