Different molecular events result in low protein levels of mannan-binding lectin in populations from southeast Africa and South America.
TLDR
The results of this study show that different molecular mechanisms are the basis for low MBL levels on the two continents.
The differing impact of chloroquine and pyrimethamine/sulfadoxine upon the infectivity of malaria species to the mosquito vector.
TLDR
The observed enhancement in infectivity induced by the use ofchloroquine combined with increased gametocytemias in chloroquine-resistant strains may in part explain the rapid spread of chloroquines resistance in endemic populations.
Anopheles arabiensis and An. funestus are equally important vectors of malaria in Matola coastal suburb of Maputo, southern Mozambique
TLDR
Transmission characteristics of malaria were studied in Matola, a coastal suburb of Maputo, the capital City, in southern Mozambique, from November 1994 to April 1996, when malaria prevalence reached ∼60% among people living nearest to the main breeding sites of the vectors.
The Matola malaria project: a temporal and spatial study of malaria transmission and disease in a suburban area of Maputo, Mozambique.
TLDR
In areas of high human density, mosquito and parasite dispersion is very limited, and therefore malaria control strategies could be more specifically targeted.
Clinical and Epidemiologic Characteristics of Human Bocavirus in Danish Infants: Results From a Prospective Birth Cohort Study
TLDR
Human bocavirus infection was associated with maternal smoking, being born in the winter, and predisposition to asthma, and HBoV infection was present mainly during the winter months.
Primary Pneumocystis Infection in Infants Hospitalized with Acute Respiratory Tract Infection
Primary P. jirovecii infection may appear as a self-limiting upper respiratory tract infection in infants.
Differential Plasma MicroRNA Profiles in HBeAg Positive and HBeAg Negative Children with Chronic Hepatitis B
TLDR
The data indicates the existence of a relationship between abundance of circulating miRNAs and immunological stages in the natural course of disease, and is the first to investigate the plasma miRNA profile of children chronically infected with HBV.
The national neonatal screening programme for congenital toxoplasmosis in Denmark: results from the initial four years, 1999–2002
Aims: To describe the outcome of four years’ nationwide neonatal screening for congenital toxoplasmosis in liveborn newborns. Methods: Congenital toxoplasmosis was diagnosed if specific Toxoplasma
Relationship between maternally derived anti-Plasmodium falciparum antibodies and risk of infection and disease in infants living in an area of Liberia, west Africa, in which malaria is highly endemic
TLDR
The level of maternally derived overall anti-schizont antigen antibodies did not seem to play a role in the relative risk of developing malaria infection or disease during the first year of life, though the level of specific anti-MSP1(19) antibodies may be associated with protection.
