Mass drug administration for elimination of Plasmodium falciparum malaria is recommended by WHO in some settings.Read online
Seasonal movement patterns of high-risk groups should be taken into consideration when selecting the optimum timing of mass drug campaigns.
A household-level model of malaria transmission is developed to understand the role of reactive case detection in malaria elimination in diverse transmission settings.
Mathematical modeling is used to evaluate mosquito gene-drive approaches in realistically seasonal spatial settings and to determine constraints on gene-construct parameters and release strategies.
In the Lake Kariba region of Zambia, villages with high and low malaria burden are interconnected, making elimination potentially very challenging.
A star-shaped, drug-containing material is packaged into a capsule that dissolves in the stomach and assumes a shape that cannot pass further down the intestine.
In many countries health system data remain too weak to accurately enumerate Plasmodium falciparum malaria cases.
In a longitudinal malaria research study, we found that low-density infections were common and primarily contribute to onward malaria transmission in a high and seasonal transmission setting.
Since the original Ross–Macdonald formulations of vector-borne disease transmission, there has been a broad proliferation of mathematical models of vector-borne disease,
Traditional methods for estimating malaria transmission based on mosquito sampling are not standardized and are unavailable in many countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
Antimalarial drugs are a powerful tool for malaria control and elimination.
A pre-erythrocytic vaccine could provide a useful tool for burden reduction and eventual eradication of malaria.
Mathematical models are a helpful tool for testing assumptions and elucidating the quantitative implications of disease features.
The impact of potential malaria vaccines is studied utilizing IDM's malaria model and EMOD software which couple a detailed description of the vector lifecycle with a comprehensive, mechanistic
Several mathematical models that simulate HIV infection and disease progression have been developed to investigate the impact of expanding access to ART on the incidence of HIV (the number of new i
