Application of loop-mediated isothermal amplification for malaria diagnosis during a follow-up study in São Tomé

Pei-Wen Lee, Dar-Der Ji, Chia-Tai Liu, Herodes S Rampao, Virgilio E do Rosario, I-Feng Lin, Men-Fang Shaio Malaria Journal 2012, 11:408 (6 December 2012)

A reliable and simple test for the detection of malaria parasite is crucial in providing effective treatment and therapeutic follow-up: the authors use four methods, including nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) for the malaria diagnosis and treatment in Sao Tome and Principe, during a successful pre-elimination campaign. They concluded that LAMP is simpler and faster for the detection of low parasitaemia and can be a potential point-of-care test for treatment follow-up.

Intermittent screening and treatment versus intermittent preventive treatment of malaria in pregnancy: user acceptability

Lucy A Smith, Caroline Jones, Rose O Adjei, Gifty D Antwi, Nana A Afrah, Brian Greenwood, Daniel Chandramohan, Harry Tagbor, Jayne Webster Malaria Journal 2010, 9:18 (14 January 2010)

Due to very high and increasing resistance of malaria parasites to SP in Africa there is a need for alternative methods to protect pregnant women from the effects of malaria in pregnancy. This study describes pregnant women’s acceptability of such an alternative method based on intermittent RDT screening followed by treatment of those found positive.

A randomized trial on effectiveness of artemether-lumefantrine versus artesunate plus amodiaquine for unsupervised treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Ghanaian children

Robin Kobbe, Philipp Klein, Samuel Adjei, Solomon Amemasor, William Thompson, Hanna Heidemann, Maja V Nielsen, Julia Vohwinkel, Benedikt Hogan, Benno Kreuels, Martina Bührlen, Wibke Loag, Daniel Ansong, Jürgen May Malaria Journal 2008, 7:261 (19 December 2008)

Numerous trials have demonstrated high efficacy and safety of artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) under supervised treatment but looking how these treatments are applied unsupervised are scarce. Unobserved AL and ASAQ treatment showed high adequate clinical and parasitological responses, though AL was inferior in preventing late clinical failures.
