submitted by: jcbradley

Jean-Claude Bradley presents a condensed version of ongoing work in his laboratory at Drexel University. Topics covered include Open Notebook Science for malaria drug discovery, the Ugi reaction and the ONS Challenge, a crowdsourcing initiative to collect non-aqueous solubility measurements. Some recent work on using web services to leverage these datasets is also discussed.

Saving Young Lives in Zambia

submitted by: busph
Anti-malarial drugs are being used inappropriately for sick children in Zambia -- a problem that can be addressed by arming community health workers with a simple rapid-diagnostic test and a supply of antibiotics, a study led by researchers at Boston University School of Public Health has found. Listen to Kojo Yeboah-Antwi, assistant professor of international health at BUSPH, and David Hamer, professor of international health at BUSPH, discuss the study. Learn more at...

Combined iron/folic acid supplements and malaria prophylaxis reduce neonatal mortality in 19 sub-Saharan African countries

submitted by: christiana.titaley
Background: In nonmalaria regions, iron/folic acid supplementation during pregnancy protects newborns against preterm delivery and early neonatal death. Other studies from malaria-endemic areas have reported an adverse effect of iron supplements on malaria prevalence in pregnant women. Objective: We examined the association between iron/folic acid supplements and prenatal antimalaria prophylaxis on neonatal mortality in malaria-endemic countries of sub-Saharan Africa. Design: This...
