Abstract

A fluorescence-based real-time 5' nuclease PCR capable of detecting all four human malaria parasites was developed to screen large numbers of samples during an outbreak to prevent further transmission of malaria. The effectiveness of antimalarial therapy for malaria patients can be monitored by determining the reduction of parasitemia by this method.
