Reactive case detection (RACD) is a widely practiced malaria elimination intervention whereby close contacts of index cases receive malaria testing to inform treatment and other interventions. However, the optimal diagnostic and operational approaches for this resource-intensive strategy are not clear.
The has been publishing the results of surveillance studies of malaria since 1995. The standard case definition uses Medical Event Reports and records of hospitalizations in counting cases of malaria. This report summarizes the performance of the standard case definition in estimating incident cases of malaria from 2015 through 2017. Also explored was the potential surveillance value of including outpatient encounters with diagnoses of malaria or positive laboratory tests for malaria in the case definiti...
Axshya SAMVAD is an active tuberculosis (TB) case finding (ACF) strategy under project Axshya (Axshya meaning 'free of TB' and SAMVAD meaning 'conversation') among marginalized and vulnerable populations in 285 districts of India.
There is a dearth of comparative effectiveness research examining the implementation of different strategies for active tuberculosis (TB) case finding, particularly in rural settings, which represent 60% of the population of sub-Saharan Africa.
China has a substantial tuberculosis (TB) disease burden and an aging population. Seniors have a higher risk of developing TB disease compared to younger age groups. Active case finding (ACF) could help identify seniors with TB disease.
Over the past decades, the malaria burden in Thailand has substantially declined. Most infections now originate from the national border regions. In these areas, the prevalence of asymptomatic infections is still substantial and poses a challenge for the national malaria elimination program. To determine epidemiological parameters as well as risk factors for malaria infection in western Thailand, we carried out a cohort study in Kanchanaburi and Ratchaburi provinces on the Thailand-Myanmar border. Blood sam...
A novel ultra-sensitive malaria RDT (us-RDT) has been developed for improved active P.falciparum case detection. The utility of this us-RDT in clinical diagnosis and fever management has not been evaluated to date.
Seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) is recommended in the Sahel region of Africa for children under 5 years of age, for up to 4 months of the year. It may be appropriate to include older children, and to provide protection for more than 4 months. We evaluated the effectiveness of SMC using sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine plus amodiaquine given over 5 months to children under 10 years of age in Saraya district in south-east Senegal in 2011.
Primary breast osteosarcoma (PBO) is a rare tumor of the breast, with only case reports and small case series published in the literature. Classic imaging findings of sunburst calcifications, a rim of intermediate density, and intense uptake on bone scintigraphy can help make the correct diagnosis preoperatively, allowing for appropriate surgical and chemotherapeutic management. We present the imaging evaluation, treatment course, and follow-up of a case of PBO diagnosed in a 67-year-old patient.
The article describes a case of gunshot suicide to the head in a 51-year-old man. The entrance wound was located in the left temple and exit wound in the right temple. The entrance wound had the characteristics of a hard-contact gunshot wound. The most interesting finding in this case was cherry-red discoloration of the right temporal muscle surrounding the exit wound. This finding could make the determination of the entrance versus exit gunshot wound challenging, especially if the wounds are of atypical ap...
To evaluate the effect of malaria elimination monitoring in Liyang City, so as to provide the evidence for formulating control strategies and measures of malaria elimination.
Point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) has proven utility in the evaluation and treatment of many tropical diseases. Its role in malaria has been studied, but its value for the clinician at the bedside is unclear. Our review aimed at summarizing the existing studies to assess the usefulness, if any, of POCUS in treating malaria.
Global malaria cases have not been significantly reduced over the last three years although more than USD 3 billion was invested in malaria control and elimination. The reasons for this stagnation are highly complex and multi-factorial. It remains that almost three billion treatment courses were supplied over the period 2010-2017: 30% of them without malaria tests, and some with suboptimal doses leading to the risk of selection of resistant parasites. An antimalarial stewardship program should be implemente...
Chronic active Epstein-Barr virus infection (CAEBV) is a common infectious disease that often affects multiple organs or systems. However, it is liable to be neglected and misdiagnosed owing to its insidious onset, lack of specific findings in the early phase, and a general lack of awareness among clinicians. PATIENT CONCERNS:: a 27-year-old woman case has been described who was initially misdiagnosed as drug-induced liver injury due to onset presentation of mild splenomegaly, recurrent liver dysfunction, a...
Measuring Satisfaction with Deployment in the Final Year of Undergraduate Medical Study (Ma-FEZ-PJ) to Ensure the Quality of Training in the Final Year - Psychometrics of a Self-Evaluation Questionnaire.
One way to recruit junior physicians in surgery is to optimise the final year. Starting points for this can be gained through a standardised evaluation of the deployments in the final year. In this study, a questionnaire for the evaluation of the training conditions and satisfaction with the deployment in the final year (Ma-FEZ-PJ) underwent a test and item analysis. In addition, initial studies were carried out to analyse the construct validity of the two scales - final year training and individual attitud...
Malaria infection remains an important health threat to U.S. service members who are located in endemic areas because of long-term duty assignments, participation in shorter-term contingency operations, or personal travel. In 2018, a total of 58 service members were diagnosed with or reported to have malaria. This represents a 65.7% increase from the 35 cases identified in 2017. The relatively low numbers of cases during 2012-2018 mainly reflect decreases in cases acquired in Afghanistan, a reduction due la...
Population-level effects of chlamydia control strategies on chlamydia transmission dynamics are difficult to quantify. In this study, we calibrated a novel sex- and age-stratified pair-formation transmission model of chlamydial infection to epidemiological data in the United States for 2000-2015. We used sex- and age-specific prevalence estimates from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys, case report data from national chlamydia surveillance, and survey data from the Youth Risk Behavior Sur...
This case note discusses R (on the Application of National Aids Trust) v The National Health Service Commissioning Board (NHS England), The Local Government Association, The Secretary of State For Health  EWCA Civ 1100. The case is an appeal on an earlier finding by the High Court that the power to commission pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) lies within National Health Service (NHS) England's competence, instead of being within the realm of local authorities' responsibilities. It now forms the sole pie...
The knowledge of transmission, prevention and symptoms of malaria is essential for travellers' safety. In real life, what do Portuguese travellers know about malaria before a Travel Medicine consultation? How can we, through this consultation, improve their knowledge?
More than 40% of the world's population, across 105 countries, live in malaria endemic areas. It is estimated that about 500 million cases of malaria and half a million deaths occur per year.
Plasmodium vivax remains a global health problem and its ability to cause relapses and subpatent infections challenge control and elimination strategies. Even in low malaria transmission settings, such as the Amazon basin, where progress in malaria control has caused a remarkable reduction in case incidence, a recent increase in P. vivax transmission demonstrates the continued vulnerability of P.vivax-exposed populations. As part of a search for complementary approaches to P.vivax surveillance in areas in w...
In spite of recent efforts to eradicate malaria in the world, this parasitic disease is still considered a major public health problem, with a total of 216 million cases of malaria and 445,000 deaths in 2016. Artemisinin-based combination therapies remain effective in most parts of the world, but recent cases of resistance in Southeast Asia have urged for novel approaches to treat malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum. In this work, we present chloroquine analogs that exhibited high activity against sensi...
Early diagnosis and prompt and effective treatment is one of the pillars of malaria control. Malaria case management guidelines recommend diagnostic testing before treatment using malaria Rapid Diagnostic Test (mRDT) or microscopy and this was adopted in Nigeria in 2010. However, despite the deployment of mRDT, the use of mRDTs by health workers varies by settings. This study set out to assess factors influencing utilisation of mRDT among healthcare workers in Zamfara State, Nigeria.
Mass migration from Venezuela has increased malaria resurgence risk across South America. During 2018, migrants from Venezuela constituted 96% of imported malaria cases along the Ecuador-Peru border. Plasmodium vivax predominated (96%). Autochthonous malaria cases emerged in areas previously malaria-free. Heightened malaria control and a response to this humanitarian crisis are imperative.
