The launch collection also contains articles on the following topics: the effect of interleukin-2 therapy in HIV infection; a candidate malaria vaccine's effect on parasite selection; a study on nutrient supplementation and the risk of cardiovascular disease; and a trial evaluating artemisinin combination therapies for treatment of malaria in Uganda.

Two further articles from the launch are highlighted below.

Anton JM de Craen (contact 2) and colleagues performed a randomized trial in 85-year old participants in the Netherlands. The investigators sought to determine whether the provision of unsolicited care in this population resulted in a reduction in disability over time and found that participants receiving unsolicited occupational therapy did not experience any reduction in disability compared to participants receiving standard care. The authors say: "trials in such elderly populations are rare" and "we submitted our study to PLoS Clinical Trials knowing it will receive broader exposure than in a specialty journal and because it is open-access":
