Abstract

Apical Membrane Antigen 1 (AMA1) of Plasmodium falciparum merozoites is a leading blood-stage malaria vaccine candidate. Protection of Aotus monkeys after vaccination with AMA1 correlates with antibody responses. A randomized, controlled, double-blind phase 1 clinical trial was conducte...read more

Hepatitis B virus is the most common cause of hepatitis worldwide and is associated with acute, fulminant, and chronic hepatitis, as well as liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Here is the latest research.

Apoptosis

Apoptosis is a specific process that leads to programmed cell death through the activation of an evolutionary conserved intracellular pathway leading to pathognomic cellular changes distinct from cellular necrosis

Parasite Host Response

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.
