Selection of Plasmodium falciparum Pfmdr-1 N86Y alleles by Amodiaquine-Artesunate and Artemether-Lumefantrine in Nanoro, Burkina Faso

Plasmodium falciparum Pfmdr1-86 gene polymorphisms were investigated in blood samples of patients > 6 months of age treated with Amodiaquine-Artesunate (ASAQ) and Artemether-Lumefantrine (AL) in Nanoro, Burkina Faso.  Treatments outcome was determined with a 28-day follow-up.

Prevalence of Schistosoma Japonicum infections among field rats (Rattus rattus norvegicus) in schistosoma infested areas of Northern Samar, Philippines

Forty-nine field rats collected from six municipalities of Northern Samar through the use of rat traps were necropsied, examined for schistosome infection, assessed for macroscopic lesion characteristics, and evaluated for parasite burden. Evaluation showed that out of the 49 field rats clinically examined, a prevalence rate of 42.86% was obtained. From this infection rate, 24.49% were males and 18.57% were females...
