Antiparasitics are medications which are indicated for the treatment of parasitic diseases. Discover the latest research on antiparasitics here.
CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This technology is being investigated to combat malaria by targeting specific stretches of vector DNA and editing the genome at precise locations. Here is the latest research.
Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.
Pyroptosis is a form of necrotic and inflammatory programmed cell death induced by inflammatory caspases, one of which is activated by Inflammasome, a multiprotein oligomer responsible for the activation of inflammatory responses. Discover the latest research on inflammasome and pyroptosis here.
Parasitic diseases may affect several hallmarks of cancer. Understanding how these parasites promote oncogenesis will aid in the development of novel treatments for infection-associated malignancy. Discover the latest research on parasites and cancer here.
Research for development of a malaria vaccine is currently underway to find an effective modality to control and eliminate the transmission of malaria. To date, no vaccine has been found to be efficacious in fighting against malaria. Here is the latest research on malaria vaccines.
Co-infections of a single host by multiple parasites is commonly observed. This feed focuses on parasitic co-infections and co-morbidities. Here is the latest research.
Parasite genetics is the study of the genetic material of parasites. Here is the latest research on parasite genetics.
The parasite host response refers to the process by which the host organism responds to and interacts with the parasite it encounters. Discover the latest research on this topic in this feed.
Parasite immune evasion refers to the process by which parasites counteract the host immune system. Here is the latest research on mechanisms that underlie this evasion.
Parasite evolution involves the heritable genetic changes that a parasite accumulates during its life time. Discover the latest research on parasite evolution here.
Malaria remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the tropics, with the parasite Plasmodium falciparum responsible for the majority of the disease burden. Discover the latest research on Plasmodium falciparum.
