7 locally transmitted malaria cases have been reported in the US (Texas and Florida), a first in quite a few years.
The species of malaria has been identified as Plasmodium vivax, one of 5 plasmodium species that can infect humans.
What is malaria?, what is Plasmodium vivax, how important is this transmission and how to prevent it?
These and other questions will be posed to my guest today.
Joining me today is Brian Grimberg, PhD. Dr. Grimberg is an Associate Professor, Department of Pathology, at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and a prominent malaria researcher.
