Seasonal changes in the antibody responses against Plasmodium falciparum merozoite surface antigens in areas of differing malaria endemicity in Indonesia
Malaria Journal 2013, 12:444 (9 December 2013)
Anti-malarial antibody responses can be useful to characterize the diversity of spatial and seasonal malaria transmission in Indonesia. For this purpose, antibody responses to Plasmodium falciparum MSP-1.19 and AMA-1 were measured to evaluate the transmission intensity in Purworejo (a hypo-endemic area) and in Lampung (a meso-endemic area) during low and high transmission seasons.

Predictors of hyperlactataemia among children presenting with malaria in a low transmission area in The Gambia
Malaria Journal 2013, 12:423 (15 November 2013)
The paper explores easy clinical variables that can be used a predictors for hyperlactataemia. Using logistic regression analysis, it identifies four variables (Blantyre score, parasitaemia, respiratory rate and presence of deep breathing), which together predict the majority of children with a lactate >7 mmol/L, which would be useful inr settings where measuring lactate is cumbersome.
