Cerebral malaria (CM) is a severe complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection that results in thousands of deaths each year, mostly in African children.


NOT Open Access | Role of TGF-β and IL-6 in dendritic cells, Treg and Th17 mediated immune response during experimental cerebral malaria

November 2, 2016 - 08:06 -- NOT Open Access
Tarun Keswani, Samrat Sarkar, Anirban Sengupta, Arindam Bhattacharyya
Cytokine, Volume 88, December 2016, Pages 154–166

The role of cytokines in Plasmodium infection have been extensively investigated, but pro and anti inflammatory cytokines mediated imbalance during malaria immune-pathogenesis is still unrevealed.

Cerebral malaria (CM) is a diffuse encephalopathy associated with coma and seizures commonly caused by Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) in children with severe malaria.

Glucagon-like peptide-1 analogue, liraglutide, in experimental cerebral malaria: implications for the role of oxidative stress in cerebral malaria

August 26, 2016 - 17:57 -- Open Access
Brian DellaValle, Casper Hempel, Trine Staalsoe, Flemming Fryd Johansen and Jørgen Anders Lindholm Kurtzhals
Malaria Journal 2016 15:427, 24 August 2016

Despite the breadth of models where GLP-1 is neuroprotective, ECM was not affected by liraglutide providing important insight into the pathogenesis of ECM.

Plasma levels of eight different mediators and their potential as biomarkers of various clinical malaria conditions in African children

July 2, 2016 - 16:13 -- Open Access
Rachida Tahar, Catarina Albergaria, Neil Zeghidour, Vincent Foumane Ngane, Leonardo K. Basco and Christian Roussilhon
Malaria Journal 2016 15:337, 29 June 2016

The results indicate that the simultaneous evaluation of these bioactive molecules as quantifiable blood parameters may be helpful to get a better insight into the clinical syndromes in children with malaria.

Psychiatric effects of malaria and anti-malarial drugs: historical and modern perspectives

June 28, 2016 - 16:34 -- Open Access

The modern medical literature implicates malaria, and particularly the potentially fatal form of cerebral malaria, with a risk of neurocognitive impairment.

Medical Treatment: 

Cysteamine broadly improves the anti-plasmodial activity of artemisinins against murine blood stage and cerebral malaria

May 11, 2016 - 16:14 -- Open Access
Neda Moradin, Sabrina Torre, Susan Gauthier, Mifong Tam, Jalal Hawari, Kirsten Vandercruyssen, Bart De Spiegeleer, Anny Fortin, Mary M. Stevenson and Philippe Gros
Malaria Journal 2016 15:260, 6 May 2016

These findings indicate that inclusion of Cys in current formulations of ACT, or its use as adjunct therapy could improve the anti-plasmodial activity of artemisinin, decrease mortality in cerebral malaria patients, and prevent or delay the development and spread of artemisinin resistance.

Medical Treatment:
