ReviewThe author makes the case for the role of cerebral vasospasm in cerebral malaria. Various lines of evidence are compiled including MRI brain findings, retinopathy, histology, transcranial Doppler, evidence for nitric oxide deficiency.
MethodologyA robust non-invasive sampling method is very much desirable for non-human primate malaria for various reasons. This is an account of a simple study in which blood and faeces samples were taken from semi-wild macaques, and the presence of malaria parasite DNA assayed by PCR.
MethodologyThe paper describes the processes to produce so-called haemozoin-like crystals and suggests its use as an assay to detect haemozoin inhibition.
ResearchVivax malaria is an important public health issue in the Amazon region, and migration across the border between Brazil and French Guiana contributes to the maintenance of the disease. This study evaluates the therapeutic and parasitological responses of patients with vivax malaria treated with chloroquine and primaquine in the socio-environmental context of cross-border interactions.
ResearchPresents a cohort study examining the long-term impact of malaria on school performance among children on the Thai-Myanmar border.
ResearchDescribes a PK interaction study with relevant combinations of drugs that have not been investigated thoroughly together previously. Such data are important for the management of drug interactions in co-infected HIV-malaria patients.
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.
