To achieve the goal of malaria elimination by 2030, the Department of Health (DOH) in the Philippines is following a devolved malaria elimination strategy in all endemic provinces [1]. The Philippines scaled up vector control and has deployed artemether-lumefantrine (AL) with primaquine (PQ) as the first line treatment for Plasmodium falciparum since 2009. Chloroquine (CQ) and primaquine remained the approved regimen for treating Plasmodium vivax malaria. These measures resulted in 80% reduction in malaria

Louis Objectives To evaluate the impact of anti-malaria biological larviciding with Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis on non-primary target mosquito species in a rural African setting. Methods A total of 127 villages were distributed in three study arms, each with different larviciding options in public spaces: i) no tre…

In the Greater Mekong subregion, intense drug pressure and indiscriminate use of poor-quality antimalarial drugs has led to the emergence of antimalarial resistance to all widely used drugs, including the artemisinin derivatives.1 The malaria community remains divided as to the magnitude of this threat. Malaria cases in the Greater Mekong subregion continue to fall, giving some authorities confidence that current activities will achieve elimination targets within the next few years. Counter-arguments highli…

In this low-transmission setting, the substantial reduction in P falciparum prevalence resulting from support of community case management was accelerated by MDA. In addition to supporting community health worker case management and LLIN distribution, malaria elimination programmes should consider using MDA to reduce P falciparum prevalence rapidly in foci of higher transmission.

…albitarsis F is a putative species belonging to the Albitarsis Complex, recognized by rDNA, mtDNA, partial white gene, and microsatellites sequences. It has been reported from the island of Trinidad, Venezuela and Colombia, and incriminated as a vector of malaria parasites in the latter. This study examined mitochondrially encoded cytochrome c oxidase I (MT-CO1) sequences of An. albitarsis F from malaria-endemic areas in Colombia and Venezuela to understand its relations with other members of the Complex, r…

Peaceful coexistence with the infected host, commonly not causing clinical symptoms, is a frequent but poorly understood effect for many human pathogens, including Plasmodium falciparum.1 The continuous production of gametocytes (the transmissible parasite stage) by persisting P falciparum in individuals with asymptomatic infections possibly constitutes a primordial source for transmission. As the drive towards elimination intensifies, the following question arises: is there added benefit to identifying and…

Individuals with asymptomatic infections were important drivers of malaria transmission. School-aged children contributed to more than half of all mosquito infections, with a small minority of asymptomatic children being highly infectious. Demographically targeted interventions, aimed at school-aged children, could further reduce transmission in areas under effective vector control.

Abstract Malaria is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in Guinea. The entire country is considered at risk of the disease. Transmission occurs all year round with peaks occurring from July through October with Plasmodium falciparum as the primary parasite species. Chloroquine (CQ) was the first-line drug against uncomplicated P. falciparum in Guinea until 2005, prior to the adoption of artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT). In this review, data on therapeutic effi…

Abstract Background Both capillary and venous blood samples have been interchangeably used for the diagnosis of malaria in Ethiopia. However, Plasmodium parasites are thought to be more concentrated in capillary than in venous blood. Hence, selecting a sample source where parasites are more concentrated is indispensable approach in order to maximize the accuracy of blood film microscopy. Therefore, the present study aimed to compare the detect…

Abstract Background Malaria, caused by Plasmodium parasites, is a major global public health problem. To assist an understanding of malaria pathogenesis, including drug resistance, there is a need for the timely detection of underlying genetic mutations and their spread. With the increasing use of whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of Plasmodium DNA, the potential of deep learning models to detect loci under recent positive selection, historically …

Abstract Background Malaria is a potentially lethal parasitic disease due to infection by Plasmodium parasites, transmitted by Anopheles mosquito vectors. Various preventative measures may be recommended for travellers who visit endemic areas. The diagnosis is generally evoked in the context of a febrile patient returning from an endemic zone. Nevertheless, symptoms and clinical signs may be difficult to interpret, and fatal cases may only be …

Abstract Background Relapses in vivax malaria have posed great challenges for malaria control, and they also account for a great proportion of reported cases. Knowing the real effectiveness of a 7-day primaquine (PQ) scheme is crucial in order to evaluate not only the cost-effectiveness of implementing new anti-hypnozoite drugs, but also how health education strategies can guarantee better compliance and be reinforced. This study aimed to eval…

… Background House improvement (HI) to prevent mosquito house entry, and larval source management (LSM) targeting aquatic mosquito stages to prevent development into adult forms, are promising complementary interventions to current malaria vector control strategies. Lack of evidence on costs and cost-effectiveness of community-led implementation of HI and LSM has hindered wide-scale adoption. This study presents an incremental cost analysis of community-led implementation of HI and L…

Abstract Background Considerable progress towards controlling malaria has been made in Papua New Guinea through the national malaria control programme’s free distribution of long-lasting insecticidal nets, improved diagnosis with rapid diagnostic tests and improved access to artemisinin combination therapy. Predictive prevalence maps can help to inform targeted interventions and monitor changes in malaria epidemiology over time as control ef…

… shared the same MSP1 allele. This common allele has previously been found to be the dominant allele transmitted in Europe. Conclusion The results corroborate earlier findings derived from a limited dataset that the globally transmitted malaria parasite P. relictum exhibits very low genetic diversity in its Western Palearctic transmission area. This is likely the result of a recent introduction event or a selective sweep.

Abstract Background Emergence of cross-resistance to current anti-malarial drugs has led to an urgent need for identification of potential compounds with novel modes of action and anti-malarial activity against the resistant strains. One of the most promising therapeutic targets of anti-malarial agents related to food vacuole of malaria parasite is haemozoin, a product formed by the parasite through haemoglobin degradation. …
