Practical Implications of the Non-Linear Relationship between the Test Positivity Rate and Malaria Incidence
(PLOS ONE, 2016)
Background: The test positivity rate (TPR), defined as the number of laboratory-confirmed malaria tests per 100 suspected cases examined, is widely used by malaria surveillance programs as one of several key indicators of ...
Permethrin‑treated baby wraps for the prevention of malaria: results of a randomized controlled pilot study in rural Uganda
(Malaria Journal, 2022)
Background: Progress against malaria has stalled and may even be slipping backwards in high-burden countries. This is due to a range of factors including insecticide resistance and mosquito feeding behaviours that limit ...
Reuse of malaria rapid diagnostic tests for amplicon deep sequencing to estimate Plasmodium falciparum transmission intensity in western Uganda
(Scientific reports, 2018)
Molecular techniques are not routinely employed for malaria surveillance, while cross-sectional, community-based parasite surveys require significant resources. Here, we describe a novel use of malaria rapid diagnostic ...
