BACKGROUND Malaria control programs have achieved remarkable success during the past decade. Nonetheless, sensitive and affordable methods for active screening of malaria parasites in low-transmission settings remain urgently needed. METHODS We developed a molecular screening method, capture and ligation probe-PCR (CLIP-PCR), which achieved the(More)
Malaria importation and local vector susceptibility to imported Plasmodium vivax infection are a continuing risk along the China-Myanmar border. Malaria transmission has been prevented in 3 border villages in Tengchong County, Yunnan Province, China, by use of active fever surveillance, integrated vector control measures, and intensified surveillance and(More)
Although malaria remains one of the leading infectious diseases in the world, the decline in malaria transmission in some area makes it possible to consider elimination of the disease. As countries approach elimination, malaria diagnosis needs to change from diagnosing ill patients to actively detecting infections in all carriers, including asymptomatic and(More)
"A-B" type photosensitive compounds including two-photon chromophore and benzophenone moiety have been designed, synthesized and characterized. The UV-vis absorption and fluorescence emission of the compounds have been extensively studied in various solvents. The results show that the absorption of "A-B" type compounds displays obvious double absorption(More)
In this paper, we have presented a range of new nitro-stilbene derivatives with benzophenones via ether or ester bridged bond. These nitro-stilbene derivatives with benzophenones have been conveniently obtained by condensation reaction. The linked benzophenones were efficiently introduced to nitro-stilbene dyes. The structures of these compounds have been(More)
Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by five species of Plasmodium parasites. Accurate diagnosis of malaria plays an essential part in malaria control. With traditional diagnostic methodologies, malaria control programs have achieved remarkable success during the past decade, and are now heading toward malaria elimination in many areas. This new(More)
Clinical or epidemiologic screening of single-nucleotide polymorphism markers requires large-scale multiplexed genotyping. Available genotyping tools require DNA extraction and multiplex PCR, which may limit throughput and suffer amplification bias. Herein, a novel genotyping approach has been developed, multiplex extension and ligation-based probe(More)
