Bioefficacy of long-lasting insecticidal nets against pyrethroid-resistant populations of Anopheles gambiae s.s. from different malaria transmission zones in Uganda
Parasites & Vectors 2013, 6:130 (2 May 2013)
Bioefficacy of long-lasting insecticidal nets against four pyrethroid-resistant populations of An. gambiae from Uganda varied depending on the net type and origin of the mosquitoes, with the exception of a combination net which performed optimally against all mosquito populations. Observed sub-optimal performance of pyrethroid-only nets is of concern, considering that all nets were unused Rresistance in Uganda is high and increasing, and scale-up of pyrethroid-treated nets is ongoing.

Systemic release of high mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein is associated with severe and fatal Plasmodium falciparum malaria
Malaria Journal 2013, 12:105 (19 March 2013)
This is a valuable study based on the results obtained for levels of HMGB1 in a highly defined patient population. These data suggest that elevated HMGB1 is an informative prognostic marker of disease severity.

BMC Medicine 2013, 11:68 (14 March 2013)
Children suffering from sepsis in the FEAST trial given fluid boluses exhibited excess mortality; analysis of the data suggests that this was due to cardiovascular collapse, which should prompt a re-evaluation of fluid resuscitation practice.
