PARIS (Reuters)—Sanofi SA will be able to provide millions of doses of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for patients with the illness caused by the novel coronavirus if the old malaria drug proves successful in clinical trials, its chief executive tells Reuters on Thursday. Paul Hudson, who became CEO of the French drugmaker in September, said in an... [Read More]

[MSF] After more than a decade of armed conflict, outbreaks of severe malnutrition, malaria, measles and cholera, approximately 1.5 million internally displaced people (IDPs) in Borno state now face the spectre of COVID-19. Many live in vastly overcrowded camps with poor water and sanitation facilities, limited supplies of hygiene essentials such as soap and water, and often no individual space at all. Functioning health infrastructure in Borno is scarce, and the capacity to refer patients is extremely limited.

Authors: Schlipköter U, Flahault A Abstract The past two centuries have seen enormous achievements in control of infectious diseases, previously the leading cause of death, in large measure due to sanitation and food safety, vaccines, antibiotics and improved nutrition. This has led people to put their faith in the notion that medical science would succeed in overcoming the remaining obstacles. Vaccination has eradicated smallpox, nearly eradicated poliomyelitis and greatly reduced many other highly dangerous infections such as diphtheria, tetanus and measles. New diseases such as HIV and new forms of influenz...

AbstractMalaria, an important parasitic disease worldwide, still has diagnostic challenges in the laboratory. Many studies have been conducted on the detection ability of haematology analysers for malaria. We evaluated the Sysmex XN-series analyser as a tool for detection of malaria by analysing the leukocyte cell population data (LCPD), scattergrams and associated Flow Cytometry Standard (FCS) data from both the WNR (white cell nucleated) and WDF (white cell differential) channels. 1281 clinically suspected cases of malaria were screened for malaria by peripheral blood smear examination and were run in the Sysmex XN-1000 ...

Currently, malaria and dengue fever remain the most life-threatening parasitic diseases across the tropical and subtropical areas, mainly in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS). Malaria remained prevalent in as many as 91 countries around the world by the start to 2016. Fifteen countries accounted for as high as 80% of global malaria cases in 2016, and approximately 90% of the cases and 91% of the malaria deaths were reported from countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as 7% from South-East Asia Region (WHO, 2016).
