Plasmodium vivax infections remain a major source of malaria-related morbidity and mortality. Early and accurate diagnosis is an integral component of effective malaria control programs. Conventional molecular diagnostic methods provide accurate results but are often resource-intensive, expensive, have a long turnaround time and are beyond the capacity of(More)
Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) are central to fulfilling the WHO’s recommendation for parasitologic confirmation of all suspected cases of malaria. RDT performance may be compromised when exposed to the high temperature conditions typical of most malaria endemic regions. However, a systematic method to monitor RDT quality and performance in endemic countries(More)
In attempt to find new pharmacologically active molecules, we report here the synthesis and in vitro antimicrobial activity of various 3-(1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)-quinazolin-4(3H)-ones. The antimicrobial activity of title compounds were examined against two gram positive bacteria (S. aureus, S. pyogenes), two gram negative bacteria (E. coli, P. aeruginosa) and(More)
Humoral immunity to Plasmodium falciparum circumsporozoite protein is partly mediated by a polymorphic NANP tetra-amino acid repeat. Antibody response to these repeats is the best correlate of protective immunity to the RTS,S malaria vaccine, but few descriptions of the natural variation of these repeats exist. Using capillary electrophoresis to determine(More)
2-[(2,6-Dichlorophenyl)amino]phenylacetic acid (A) on reaction with thionyl chloride gave corresponding acid chloride (B). A series of (4-oxo-thiazolidinyl)sulfonamides of quinazolin-4(3H)ones (4a-l) were prepared from Schiff bases (3a-l) of 2-[2-(2,6-dichlorophenyl)amino]phenylmethyl-3-[(4-aminophenyl)sulfonamido-1-yl]quinazolin-4(3H)one (D) and(More)
Imported malaria threatens control and elimination efforts in countries that have low rates of transmission. In 2010, an outbreak of Plasmodium falciparum malaria was reported among United Nations peacekeeping soldiers from Guatemala who had recently returned from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Epidemiologic evidence suggested that the soldiers(More)
Several pyrazolyl-quinazolin-4(3H)-ones 6a–m were synthesized by the cyclization of acrylamides 5a–m with hydrazine hydrate. The overall reaction was carried out by multi step process. The base-catalyzed cyclization of acid chloride 1 with 5-iodo anthranilic acid yielded benzoxazinone 2, which on reaction with hydrazine hydrate afforded amino(More)
