Clinically silent relapsing malaria may still pose a threat Date: September 19, 2019

The protozoal parasite Plasmodium vivax is a major cause of malaria -- a life-threatening mosquito-borne disease responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths globally each year. P. vivax remains a major obstacle for malaria elimination due to its ability to form dormant stages in the liver. These forms can become activated to cause relapsing blood-stage infections. Relapses remain poorly understood because it is difficult to verify whether P. vivax blood-stage infections in patients are due to new infections or relapses. To address this gap in knowledge, researchers used a nonhuman primate ...

Climate information to help combat malaria in Ethiopia

An initiative called ENACTS has made climate information easier for Ethiopian health professionals to access and use. This has helped them to pinpoint which districts will be most exposed to the climatic conditions that foster the spread of malaria – and to better target malaria control measures. Ethiopia has a varied landscape, which gives rise to a diverse climate. Its central plateau ranges from 1,290 to 3,000 metres high and covers two-thirds of the country’s land area. By contrast, hot, humid lowlands cover part of western Ethiopia and the southeast of the country is characterised by ...
