    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

    Abstract : Malaria antigen-induced polarization of T cells into effectors Th1 and/or Th2 cells and their subsequent release of cytokines is known to affect antibody production. This thesis includes studies on early innate responses to the parasite, with a focus on γδT cells, and acquired specific responses in African sympatric ethnic tribes. READ MORE

    Abstract : The burden of the most virulent form of human malarias, Plasmodium falciparum, is concentrated among young children and pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa. Excessive sequestration of parasite-infected red blood cells (pRBCs) in the capillary beds of different organs is the hallmark of P. READ MORE
