Reformulated Influenza Rapid Test Made Available

Influenza is a viral infection of the upper respiratory system, which includes the nose, bronchial tubes, and lungs. Influenza can make people of any age ill. Although most people, including children, are ill with influenza for less than a week, some have a much more serious illness and may need to be hospitalized. Influenza may also lead to pneumonia or death. More...

Saliva-based Test Detects Infectious Subclinical Malaria

Low-density subclinical infection with Plasmodium falciparum among defined population subsets has been shown to be an important but cryptic facet of malaria transmission. Typically, these individuals are not readily detected by currently available point-of-need (PON) rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) or microscopy. More...
