The recent resurgence of Plasmodium vivax malaria requires close epidemiological surveillance and monitoring of the circulating parasite populations. In this study, we developed a combination of polymerase chain reaction and restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR/RFLP) method to investigate the genetic diversity of the P. vivax merozoite surface protein 3beta (PvMSP3beta) gene among four Asian parasite populations representing both tropical and temperate strains with dramatic divergent… CONTINUE READING
