    Author : Sherwin Chan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]

    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
