Makoto Saito, Valérie Briand, Aung Myat Min, Rose McGready,

All malaria infections are harmful to both the pregnant mother and the developing fetus. One in ten maternal deaths in malaria endemic countries are estimated to result from Plasmodium falciparum infection. Malaria is associated with a 3-4 times increased risk of miscarriage and a substantially increased risk of stillbirth. Current ... Read more >>

Prevalences of inherited red blood cell disorders in pregnant women of different ethnicities living along the Thailand-Myanmar border

Germana Bancone, Mary Ellen Gilder, Nongnud Chowwiwat, Gornpan Gornsawun, Elsi Win, Win Win Cho, Eh Moo, Aung Myat Min, Prakaykaew Charunwatthana, Verena Carrara, Nicholas White, François Nosten, Rose McGready,

Background : Inherited red blood cell disorders are prevalent in populations living in malaria endemic areas; G6PD deficiency is associated with oxidant-induced haemolysis and abnormal haemoglobin variants may cause chronic anaemia. In pregnant women, microcytic anaemia caused by haemoglobinopathies mimics iron deficiency, complicating diagnosis and treatment. Anaemia during pregnancy is ... Read more >>

We assessed the association between the number and timing of falciparum and vivax malaria episodes during pregnancy on small-for-gestational-age (SGA) and preterm birth. METHODS:We analysed observational data collected from antenatal ... Read more >>
