In this study, we used focused-ion-beam-milling combined with scanning-electron-microscopy to report the 3D architecture during nuclear segregations in oocyst stage. This advanced technology allowed us to analyse the 3D details of organelle segregation inside the oocyst during sporogony formation. It was revealed that multiple nuclei were involved with several centrosomes in one germ nucleus during sporozoite budding (endopolygeny). Our high-resolution 3D analysis uncovered the endopolygeny-like nuclear architecture of Plasmodium in the definitive host. This nuclear segregation was different from that in the blood stage, a...

CONCLUSIONS Support to fish farmers for low-cost inputs was not observed, and appropriate knowledge regarding the impact of the absence of maintenance and abandonment of fish tanks was insufficient. Moreover, insufficient healthcare services prevented not only the treatment of individuals with malaria but also the control of this disease.

We reported three cases of possible parasite resistance to artemether-lumefantrine therapy. All subjects had complete parasite clearance when treated with other antimalarial drugs. This observation necessitates the urgent need to re-evaluate artemether-lumefantrine medication in Nigeria since it is one of the most commonly used ACT drug.

Abstract Malaria, a mosquito-borne infectious disease, is considered a significant global health burden. Climate changes or different weather conditions may impact infectious diseases, specifically those transmitted by insect vectors and contaminated water. Based on the current predictions for climate change associated with the increase in carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere and the increase in atmospheric temperature, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that in 2050, malaria may threaten some previously unexposed areas worldwide and cause a 50% higher probability of malaria cases. Climate-ba...
