Adding either of the potent gametocytocidal drugs primaquine and methylene blue to certain antimalarial combinations can safely block human-to-mosquito transmission and may be used for P. falciparum malaria control and elimination, according to new study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

In this study, researchers developed techniques for several uses such as Fluorescence optical imaging techniques have revolutionized the field of cardiac electrophysiology and advanced our understanding of complex electrical activities such as arrhythmias. However, traditional monocular optical mapping systems, despite having high spatial resolution, are restricted to a two-dimensional (2D) field of view.
The process that allows bacteria to divide is crucial for their survival and a good target for the development of new antibiotics. A new study published in the journal Nature reveals the molecular details of the coordination between peptidoglycan synthesis and cytokinesis in the bacterial pathogen Staphylococcus aureus.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), With this year's severe flu season, one statistic is especially chilling. Each year, around 50% of all children under 5 years old who die from the flu were previously healthy.
Adults who die from the flu, on the other hand, typically had a medical condition that increased their risk of mortality. A new study published in the Journal of Immunology offers new insights as to why healthy children are much more vulnerable. It also opens new opportunities for treatment.
A new Maryland law may jeopardize the ability of thousands of consumers both men and women to use health savings accounts. The law mandates that insurers cover vasectomies without requiring patients to pay anything out-of-pocket just as they must do for more than a dozen birth control methods for women.
A new blood test called the Tick-Borne Disease Serochip (TBD Serochip) promises to revolutionize the diagnosis of tick-borne disease by offering a single test to identify and distinguish between Borrelia burgdorferi, the pathogen responsible for Lyme disease, and seven other tick-borne pathogens. The study is published in the journal Nature: Scientific Reports.
A new study published in the Journal of Pain suggests that greater severity of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms may be associated with higher levels of pain intensity and pain interference in pediatric patients with chronic pain, and this relationship may be partly mediated by sleep quality.
According to a study reported in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, patients with severe blockages in leg arteries can sometimes be treated with surgery to reroute blood flow; otherwise, they require amputation. And black patients are more likely than whites to get amputations.
Immunotherapy is showing "really durable benefit" in patients with bladder cancer, experts said here at the Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (GUCS) 2018. Some patients are living much longer through immunotherapy than through chemotherapy — which is demonstrated by the "tail" at the end of overall survival curves from clinical trials.
Rapid increases in pollution may be as harmful to the heart as sustained high levels, according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. The authors urgently call for confirmatory studies as even residents of clean air cities could be at risk.
According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, opiate use is widespread during hospitalization and is associated with significant negative clinical outcomes and quality metrics, which is of particular concern for older adults.
In this study, researchers assessed the anatomical network analysis of primate head and neck musculoskeletal system. Network theory is increasingly being used to study morphological modularity and integration. Anatomical network analysis (AnNA) is a framework for quantitatively characterizing the topological organization of anatomical structures and providing an operational way to compare structural integration and modularity.
