TL;DR: Evaluating the impact of malaria control interventions across endemic regions that differ in the dominant Plasmodium species, mosquito vector species, resistance to antimalarial drugs and human genetic variants thought to confer protection from infection and clinical manifestations of plasmodia infection is evaluated.
Abstract: Understanding the epidemiological features and metrics of malaria in endemic populations is a key component to monitoring and quantifying the impact of current and past control efforts to inform future ones The International Centers of Excellence for Malaria Research (ICEMR) has the opportunity to evaluate the impact of malaria control interventions across endemic regions that differ in the dominant Plasmodium species, mosquito vector species, resistance to antimalarial drugs and human genetic variants thought to confer protection from infection and clinical manifestations of plasmodia infection ICEMR programs are conducting field studies at multiple sites with the aim of generating standardized surveillance data to improve the understanding of malaria transmission and to monitor and evaluate the impact of interventions to inform malaria control and elimination programs In addition, these epidemiological studies provide a vast source of biological samples linked to clinical and environmental "meta-data" to support translational studies of interactions between the parasite, human host, and mosquito vector Importantly, epidemiological studies at the ICEMR field sites are integrated with entomological studies, including the measurement of the entomological inoculation rate, human biting index, and insecticide resistance, as well as studies of parasite genetic diversity and antimalarial drug resistance

TL;DR: The authors' prognostic score (UPPS) helps not only in predicting early mortality but also in identifying the patients who are likely to live longer and may be helpful in the decision-making in this difficult subset of patients.
Abstract: There has been a shift in the paradigm of management of post-myocardial infarction ventricular septal rupture (MI VSR), with many authors reporting improved prognosis if the surgery can be “optimally delayed.” Timing of the procedure is of critical importance and our management (UPMS), and prognosis scores (UPPS) have proven to be relevant. However, long-term outcomes and their correlation with our scores had not been analyzed. In this study, we present our long-term results of post-MI-VSR repair and their correlation with our prognosis score (UPPS). Seventy-one patients with post-MI VSR repair (2009–2017) were retrospectively studied. Patients were managed using standard institute protocols. The 30-day mortality was 56% (n = 40). During a mean follow-up of 4.91 ± 2.43 years, there were eight late deaths. Actuarial survival of 30-day survivors was 87% at 1 year, 74% at 5 years, and 69% at 10 years. Actuarial freedom from major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) was 82% at 1 year, 72% at 2 years, and 72% at 8 years. The UPPS score predicts late mortality with sensitivity of 75% and negative predictive value of 84%. Our prognostic score (UPPS) helps not only in predicting early mortality but also in identifying the patients who are likely to live longer. The management score (UPMS) also provides best timing for the procedure, which is helpful in optimal utilization of resources in the developing world. The accuracy of these scores is reasonable and may be helpful in the decision-making in this difficult subset.

TL;DR: An overview of the current laboratory diagnostic methods is provided with a purpose to provide information and guidance to laboratories, stakeholders, broader community and especially public health professionals involved in laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2.
Abstract: Severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus-2 (SARS-CoV-2), a novel coronavirus initially reported in Wuhan, China, is the causative agent of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Symptoms of the disease comprise of fever, tiredness, dry cough, aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat, diarrhoea and pneumonia at the late stage. SARS-CoV-2 has severely crippled the healthcare system and has caused huge economic losses. Following the outbreak, the SARS-CoV-2 was recognized timely and its genome was sequenced, leading to the development of real-time polymerase chain reaction assays for its detection in clinical samples collected from suspected cases. The management of the pandemic is limited by a number of misconceptions and insufficient information about laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2 to confirm the disease. This includes a lack of awareness about procedures for the collection, transport, testing, and handling of biological samples for COVID diagnosis. This article provides an overview of the current laboratory diagnostic methods with a purpose to provide information and guidance to laboratories, stakeholders, broader community and especially public health professionals involved in laboratory testing for SARS-CoV-2.
