Abstract

Malaria remains a significant global health burden. The development of an effective malaria vaccine remains as a major challenge with the potential to significantly reduce morbidity and mortality. While Plasmodium spp. have been shown to contain a large number of intrinsically disordere...read more

Malaria

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that affects humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches. Discover the latest research on malaria here,

Parasite Immune Evasion

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.

Plasmodium Vivax Malaria

Yeast as a Model Organism (Yeast Model)

Yeast is a unicellular eukaryote that is utilized and manipulated in biological research to examine biological processes that underlie DNA replication, cell growth, and division, among numerous others. This feed focuses on yeast as a model organism.

Antimalarial Agents

Antimalarial agents, also known as antimalarials, are designed to prevent or cure malaria. Discover the latest research on antimalarial agents here.

Malaria Vaccines

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.

Plasmodium Falciparum Drug Resistance

Plasmodium Falciparum

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.

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.

Glycomics

Glycomics, the study of glycans and glycan-binding proteins in various biological systems, is an emerging field in the postgenome and postproteomics era. Here is the latest research.

Antigenic Modulation

Antigenic modulation occurs when an antibody cross-links antigens on a cell surface, causing the antigens to become internalized. This can lead to therapeutic failure of monoclonal antibodies as the expression of the antigen becomes decreased on target cells. Find the latest research on antigenic modulation here.
