New Method to Diagnose Malaria | HealthMap

This new method, called Rolling Circule-Enhanced Enzyme Activity Detection, or REEAD, is more time- and cost- effective, and easy to perform. It is also able to diagnose infections caused by all five malaria-carrying plasmodium parasites, not just the most common two (Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax). Further, according to the Aarhus University press release, the REEAD-based method can detect whether the infecting plasmodium is drug resistant.
