With the start of September, PLOS Medicine publishes three new articles:

Ivo Mueller and colleagues examined the association of Southeast Asian ovalocytosis with Plasmodium vivax infection by genotyping 1975 children enrolled in three independent epidemiological studies conducted in the Madang area of Papua New Guinea and assessing P. vivax infection and disease in the children.

Morna Cornell and colleagues investigate differences in mortality for HIV-positive men and women on antiretroviral therapy in South Africa.

Madhukar Pai and colleagues discuss a framework for envisioning how point-of-care testing can be applied to infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries.

Remember you can comment on, annotate and rate any PLOS Medicine article and see the views, citations and other indications of impact of an article on that articles metrics tab.
