Improving the Specificity of Plasmodium falciparum Malaria Diagnosis in High- Transmission Settings with a Two-Step Rapid Diagnostic Test and Microscopy Algorithm
(Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 2017)
Poor specificity may negatively impact rapid diagnostic test (RDT)-based diagnostic strategies for malaria. We performed real-time PCR on a subset of subjects who had undergone diagnostic testing with a multiple-antigen ...
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 ...
