A Scoping Review of the Use of Serological Markers for the Monitoring of P. vivax Malaria


Lejl Karta*

By using serological surveillance techniques, it may be possible to locate P. vivax exposures, including asymptomatic carriers. Serosurveillance is used in different ways across the world, including differences in methodology and transmission setting. There is no systematic review detailing the benefits and drawbacks of using surveillance in diverse contexts. To standardise and validate the use of serology for the surveillance of P. vivax in particular transmission scenarios, these results must first be compiled and compared. Applications for P. vivax serosurveillance were reviewed globally from a scoping perspective. There were 94 studies discovered that matched the inclusion and exclusion criteria.
