Monocyte activation and cytokine production in Malawian children presenting with P. falciparum malaria

Abstract:

Malaria in malaria-naïve adults is associated with an inflammatory response characterised by expression of specific activation markers on innate immune cells. Here we investigate activation and adhesion marker expression, and cytokine production in monocytes from children presenting with cerebral malaria (CM, n=36), severe malarial anaemia (SMA, n=42) or uncomplicated malaria (UM, n= 66), and healthy aparasitemic children (n=52) in Blantyre, Malawi. In all malaria groups, but particularly in ...
