  1. 1. Translational regulation in Plasmodium falciparum

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Sherwin Chan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum is the causative agent of the most malignant form of human malaria, which remains as one of the most devastating infectious diseases. In face of a continuous international effort to eliminate the disease, the parasite not only has evaded a total obliteration, but has now evolved resistance to many of the available drugs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human genetic factors involved in immunity to Plasmodium falciparum infection

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Author : Manijeh Vafa Homann; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasmodium falciparum; Malaria; Immunity; Ethnic groups; Mali; Senegal; Genetic factors; IL-4; IL-10; Polymorphism; MOI; RBC variants; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Abstract : This study investigated the associations between IL-4 -590 C/T and IL-10 -1087 A/G polymorphisms and malariometric indexes in the Fulani and the Dogon ethnic groups living in sympatry in Mali and differing in susceptibility to malaria. The correlations between antibodies level and parasitological data as well as splenomegaly were assessed. READ MORE

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) infection modulates the response of innate immune cells. The aim of this work was to study the impact of P. falciparum infection and P. READ MORE

  4. 4. Immunological characteristics of recombinant fragments of the Plasmodium falciparum blood-stage antigen Pf332

    University dissertation from Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Author : Halima A. Balogun; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Plasmodium falciparum; Pf332; antibodies; immunity; growth inhibition; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Immunology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Immunologi; Immunology; immunologi;

    Abstract : Effective malaria vaccine might help improve control strategies against malaria, but the complexity of interactions between the parasite and its hosts poses challenges. The asexual blood stage P. falciparum antigen Pf332 has potentials as one of the proteins in understanding the complex host-parasite interactions. READ MORE

  5. 5. In Vitro Studies of Factors Potentially Affecting Plasmodium Falciparum Infection : (Heparin and Anti-P. falciparum Immune Responses)

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Asli Kulane; Stockholms universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi Immunologi; Immunology; immunologi;

    Abstract : Plasmodium falciparum malaria is considered one of the major infectious diseases in humans, with regard to mortality and morbidity. Growing resistance of malaria to most anti-malaria drugs and of the Anopheles mosquitoes to insecticides have resulted in a global resurgence of the disease. READ MORE
