Induction and decay of functional complement-fixing antibodies by the RTS,S malaria vaccine in children, and a negative impact of malaria exposure

February 25, 2019

Background: Leading malaria vaccine, RTS,S, is based on the circumsporozoite protein (CSP) of sporozoites. RTS,S confers partial protection against malaria…

Targets of complement-fixing antibodies in protective immunity against malaria in children

February 5, 2019

Antibodies against P. falciparum merozoites fix complement to inhibit blood-stage replication in naturally-acquired and vaccine-induced immunity; however, specific targets of…

Low Levels of Human Antibodies to Gametocyte-Infected Erythrocytes Contrasts the PfEMP1-Dominant Response to Asexual Stages in P. falciparum Malaria

January 14, 2019

Vaccines that target Plasmodium falciparum gametocytes have the potential to reduce malaria transmission and are thus attractive targets for malaria control. However,…

Risk of Plasmodium vivax parasitaemia after Plasmodium falciparum infection: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

January 1, 2019

Background A 14-day course of primaquine is used for radical cure of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium ovale malaria only. We quantified the risk of P…

Acquisition of antibodies against endothelial protein C receptor-binding domains of Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 in children with severe malaria

December 13, 2018

Background Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) mediates parasite sequestration in postcapillary venules in P. falciparum malaria. PfEMP1 types can…

Antibody targets on the surface of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes that are associated with immunity to severe malaria in young children

December 13, 2018

Background Sequestration of Plasmodium falciparum–infected erythrocytes (IEs) in the microvasculature contributes to pathogenesis of severe malaria in children. This mechanism…
