A team led by James Logan, head of the Department of Disease Control at the London tropical medicine school, previously demonstrated that socks worn by infected children were more alluring to the little bloodsuckers, likely because the garments' odors contained more chemicals called aldehydes.

In a pilot study led by Steven Lindsay, a public health entomologist at Durham University in the United Kingdom, almost 600 Gambian school children between the ages of 5 and 13 were tested for malaria and fitted with a pair of socks.

Scientists found trained sniffer dogs were up to 70 per cent accurate in detecting the deadly disease. Current diagnostic methods are also time-consuming because they require blood samples to be taken and sent off to a laboratory for testing. The sample size of 175 pairs of socks is smaller than Medical Detection Dogs would have liked, says Claire Guest, cofounder and chief executive officer of the nonprofit.
She added: "This is the first time we have trained dogs to detect a parasite infection and we are delighted by these early results".
They have trained dogs to recognise tell-tale aromas using clothes from people infected with the disease.
"New approaches to facilitate the identification of infected individuals to be treated would help enormously in addressing the human reservoir of infection and possibly reduce malaria transmission". Together we build journalism that is independent, credible and fearless. It costs a lot to produce.
And if not sniffer dogs, then maybe an electronic "nose" could be used.
