Pyronaridine, a hydroxyanilino-benzonaphthyridine derivative synthesized in 1970, is a new antimalarial compound which has been in use in China for more than 10 years. The drug is highly effective against Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax. Furthermore, it is efficacious in combatting chloroquine-resistant strains of falciparum malaria both in vitro and in(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the major ecological drivers for malaria vector density using the structural equation model (SEM) in the Three Gorges Reservoir. METHOD An 11-year longitudinal surveillance of malaria vector as well as its related ecological factors was carried out in the Three Gorges Reservoir. The Delphi method was used to identify associated(More)
Malaria is endemic in Linzhi Prefecture in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR), but the vector for malaria transmission had never been identified. Adult Anopheles spp. were collected in Motuo County, Linzhi Prefecture on the Sino-Indian border in July and August, 2007. Multiplex PCR was adopted for species identification, and a nested PCR approach was used to(More)
China Yangtze Three Gorges Project (TGP) is one of the biggest construction projects in the world. The areas around the Three Gorge Dam has a history of tertian malaria and subtertian malaria epidemic, but there are no overall data about malaria epidemics before the completion of the project. The objective of this study was to get a reliable baseline on(More)
The mosquito sampling efficiency of light-trap catches and electric motor mosquito catches were compared with that of human biting catches in the Three Gorges Reservoir. There was consistency in the sampling efficiency between light-trap catches and human biting catches for Anopheles sinensis (r = 0.82, P<0.01) and light-trap catches were 1.52 (1.35-1.71)(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish ascariasis transmission mathematical models and apply them to predict field status. METHODS Cuiping District in Sichuan Province, Jinxian County in Jiangxi Province and Yueyang County in Hunan Province were selected as the investigation sites. The Ascaris lumbricoides infection rates and mean worm burdens of baseline, 1 month and 1(More)
