Researchers reveal the importance of antibody affinity and dissociation constant in parasite neutralisation.
Researchers develop an image recognition tool to identify mosquitoes in the field, and a new paper highlights the nuanced realities of malaria decision-making in endemic regions.
Researchers identify three biomarkers associated with gametocytes development that predict transmission potential, and the use of LAMP-based malaria diagnostic tools is evaluated.
Pb22, a protein expressed by Plasmodium berghei, may play an important role in the transmission of malaria, and review on the use of tafenoquine finds that the drug is well-tolerated and effective.
Determining drug efficacy through parasite clearance half-life may underestimate the activity of some antimalarial drugs, and the WHO publishes new guidance on the use of genetically modified mosquitoes.
New research examines the long-term impact of malaria infection on γδ T cells, and a review of malaria cases among pregnant women in Lagos, Nigeria, explores the impact of preventative measures on the prevalence of malaria and anaemia.
A new diagnostic tool using microneedles eliminates the need for a fingerprick, and researchers develop a more efficient gene-drive system that overcomes the challenge of genetic resistance.
Researchers find that a change in parasite behaviour may help them survive in the human host during the dry season, and the importance of preventative malaria treatment in school children is demonstrated in a recent review.
