  1. 1. Malaria on islands : human and parasite diversities and implications for malaria control in Vanuatu

    Författare :Akira Kaneko; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; malaria; Plasmodium falciparum; Plasmodium vivax; glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency; CYP2C19; dihydrofolate reductase; cycloguanil; proguanil; mass drug administration; diversity; island; Vanuatu; Pacific;

    Sammanfattning : The genetic diversities displayed by human and malaria parasites at different frequencies in different geographical areas represent a major obstacle for the development of malaria control strategies including malaria chemotherapy and malaria vaccine. We investigated some genetic diversities on Vanuatu islands with various malaria endemicities. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Malaria remains one of the most significant global public health challenges. Nearly half of the world’s population remains at risk, largely in African Region. In the past decade, considerable progress has been made in the global fight to control and eliminate malaria. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Play as Freedom : Implications for ICT4D

    Författare :Pedro Ferreira; Kristina Höök; Jonathan Donner; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Information and Communication Tech nologies for Development (ICT4D) deals with understanding the relationship between modern technology use and social and economic development. While play may not appear as an immediate concern to the field, a recent body of work has emerged questioning the role of play in ICT4D and the reasons behind its apparent dismissal. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Spread and distribution of drug resistance and compensatory mutations in Plasmodium falciparum

    Författare :Irina Tatiana Jovel Quiñonez Dalmau; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : In 2010 there were an estimated 216 million cases of malaria worldwide. In Honduras there were ~9000 cases of which 88% were due to Plasmodium vivax mono-infection. Chloroquine (CQ) resistant Plasmodium falciparum have spread throughout the world curtailing its use. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects of molecular markers in drug resistant malaria

    Författare :Irina Tatiana Jovel Quiñonez Dalmau; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
