Parasitic co‐infections are common in Rwandan schoolchildren, and are associated with a rather silent clinical manifestation that nevertheless may affect school performance and long‐term development.
Many human parasites and pathogens have closely related counterparts among non-human primates.
Plasmodium infection, both for IFN-γ-dependent effector mechanisms and providing B cell helper signals.
Innate immunity is an ancient and conserved defense system that provides an early effective response against invaders.
The putative Plasmodium translocon of exported proteins (PTEX) is essential for transport of malarial effector proteins across a parasite-encasing vacuolar membrane into host erythrocytes, but the mechanism of this process remains unknown.
Currently, there are very few studies of avian malaria that investigate relationships among the host-vector-parasite triad concomitantly.
Cell motility is essential for protozoan and metazoan organisms and typically relies on the dynamic turnover of actin filaments.
Currently, the most effective antimalarial is artemisinin, which is extracted from the leaves of medicinal herb Artemisia annua L. (A. annua).
Although Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes fare overall better than uninfected ones, Wolbachia does not confer a sufficiently high reproductive boost to mosquitoes to compensate for the reproductive losses inflicted by Plasmodium.
In this article, we first review the history of malarial infection in Korea by means of studies on Joseon documents and the related scientific data on the evolutionary history of P. vivax in Asia.
