Malaria: even more chronic in nature than previously thought; evidence for subpatent parasitaemia detectable by the polymerase chain reaction


, : Malaria: even more chronic in nature than previously thought; evidence for subpatent parasitaemia detectable by the polymerase chain reaction. Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 90(1): 15-19

The parasitological status of individuals microscopically-negative for malaria was investigated using the polymerase chain reaction (a technique 100 to 1000 times more sensitive than microscopy) on a series of samples from Dielmo, a holoendemic area of Senegal.

Light microscopy of thick and thin blood smears is the mainstay of malaria diagnosis. In situations of low-level parasitaemia such as drug-modified disease, however, this may be difficult making clinical management problematic. Polymerase chain re...

Background: Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) allows detection of Trypanosoma cruzi in blood throughout the course of Chagas' disease. Objective: To determine whether T. cruzi DNA detected by PCR is associated with progression to chronic Chagas...

In chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), clonal rearrangement of the immunoglobulin heavy chain locus (IgH) provides a useful marker for the detection of minimal residual disease (MRD) after treatment. At the time of initial presentation, DNA from p...

Assessing the clinical significance of JAK2 V617F mutant allele burden is complicated by a myriad of techniques reported to detect and quantify the mutation. As a consequence, the level of sensitivity and how the data is reported vary. Harmonizati...
