Latest Plasmodium ovale Stories
An international team of scientists has traced the origin of Plasmodium vivax, the second-worst malaria parasite of humans, to Africa
A mutation on the surface of human red blood cells provides protection against malaria caused by the parasite Plasmodium vivax.
A new evidence-based global distribution map of Plasmodium vivax malaria, published August 3 in the open-access journal PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases, is used to estimate that 2.85 billion people lived at risk of infection with this parasite in 2009.
Scientists investigating ovale malaria, a form of the disease thought to be caused by a single species of parasite, have confirmed that the parasite is actually two similar but distinct species which do not reproduce with each other.
Study proves blood-stage infection due to population mixing and disease evolution
