A vaccine targeting Plasmodium vivax signifies an additional necessary tool when considering the malaria elimination/eradication goal. In this study, in vivo immunological evaluation of two novel engineered proteins of P. vivax circumsporozoite (PvCS127 and PvCS712) with two different arrangements of the repeat sequences of VK210 and VK247 was assessed.
