BACKGROUND In malaria endemic regions people are commonly infected with multiple species of malaria parasites but the clinical impact of these Plasmodium co-infections is unclear. Differences in transmission seasonality and transmission intensity between endemic regions have been suggested as important factors in determining the effect of multiple species co-infections. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS In order to investigate the impact of multiple-species infections on clinical measures of malaria we… CONTINUE READING
