Operational performance of a Plasmodium falciparum ultrasensitive rapid diagnostic test for the detection of asymptomatic infections in Eastern Myanmar

Abstract:

Context

In the Greater Mekong Subregion, malaria elimination strategies target all Plasmodium falciparum parasites, including those carried asymptomatically. Over 70% of asymptomatic carriers are undetectable by current rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) or microscopy. An HRP2-based ultrasensitive RDT (uRDT) developed to improve the detection of low density infections was evaluated during prevalence surveys within a malaria elimination program in a low transmission area of Eastern Myan...
