Description

The Fyodor Urine Malaria Test (UMT) has the potential to improve patient outcomes and reduce the spread of drug resistance in malaria. It does not require a blood sample and is so easy to perform that it may be done at home.

Like other RDTs, the UMT detects proteins produced by the malaria parasite. Different RDTs react to different proteins, thereby detecting either just one or more types of malaria. The protein to which the UMT reacts is histidine-rich protein 2 (HRP2), a protein produced by Plasmodium falciparum, which is the most common malaria species in Africa.

HRP2 is produced by merozoite and gametocyte forms of the malaria parasite. The blood then transports HRP2 to the kidneys, where it is passed on to the bladder as part of the urine. Normally, only a small amount of protein can be found in the urine, but fever and malaria both increase this amount.
