  • This article is a key demonstration of the efficacy of methylene blue against three different types of malaria in three different animal models.
  • Describes anti-malarial activity of tigecycline, a new derivative of tetracycline class of antibiotics, showing promising activityin vitro and in vivo in combination with CQ.
  • In this video Q&A, we interview Sir Ian Gilmore on the global burden of alcohol in terms of its scale and consequences relating to illness, and discuss the strategies that are addressing the problem.
  • An interesting study which contributes to better understanding of biological and epidemiological aspects of malaria infection in chimpanzees.Research provides evidence that susceptibility to malaria infection increases during chimpanzee pregnancy and addresses a substantial question on chimpanzee populations' fitness and conservation.
  • Development of a flow cytometry assay to quantify infected red cells in the presence of leukocytes and capable of discriminating between life/dead cells. The authors show that the assay does better than previously developed assays when it comes to discriminating early ring stages from uninfected red cells.
  • Comparaison of he accuracy of malaria diagnosis by microscopy with real-time PCR. Based on SYBR Green PCR: a high frequency of mixed P. falciparum/P. vivax infections and P. ovale infections was observed that had been missed by microscopy.
