Open Access | Non-variant specific antibody responses to the C-terminal region of merozoite surface protein-1 of Plasmodium falciparum (PfMSP-119) in Iranians exposed to unstable malaria transmission

The present findings demonstrated the presence of non-variant specific antibodies to PfMSP-119 in Iranian falciparum malaria patients. This data suggests that polymorphism in PfMSP-119 is less important and one variant of this antigen, particularly Q/KNG/L, may be sufficient to be included in PfMSP-119-based vaccine.

The present data suggest the need for improving microscopy diagnosis method and the clinician should also have careful clinical observation, along with the reports on Giemsa-stained thick blood films, particularly in summer time when P. vivax is predominant.

In this study, the diversity of Plasmodium vivax populations circulating in Pakistan and Iran has been investigated by using circumsporozoite protein (csp) and merozoite surface proteins 1 and 3α (msp-1 and msp-3α) genes as genetic markers.
