Malaria Research

The Malaria Centre brings together researchers from many disciplines to make innovative and thorough contributions to the advancement of knowledge on malaria. Some of the fundamental questions which need to be addressed if we are to reduce the impact of malaria can be answered using skills from single scientific disciplines such as immunology, parasite biology, epidemiology or clinical research. Many of the most important barriers to effective prevention and treatment of malaria, especially amongst the poorest and most vulnerable, can however only be overcome using research which cuts across traditional scientific boundaries. 

Around 50% of the confirmed malaria cases are P. vivax cases. Several elements make it difficult to control: it has a unique biology (generation of hypnzoites in the liver stage) with a large prevalence of asymptomatic cases among semi-immune populations, it responds differently to anti-malarials than P. falciparum and research in the past years on P. vivax has been poorly funded leading to few tools and approaches for control, the current tools for radical cure (14-days of primaquine) poses a challenge of adherence to treatment and in places where P. vivax transmission occurs, mixed infections with P. falciparum are common. Basic and operational research onP. vivax needs to be expanded and strong BCC programs are required to ensure adherence to treatments. In addition, regional cooperation networks could be created to share practices on the control of P. vivax malaria
