Plasmodium falciparum: inhibition/reversal of cytoadherence of Thai isolates to melanoma cells by local immune sera.

Abstract:

The effect of sera on the cytoadherence in vitro of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes to melanoma cells was examined. Sera from 19 healthy individuals living in endemic malarious areas in Thailand and 24 patients with P. falciparum malaria were tested against four local P. falciparum isolates. Out of 57 sera examined, 12 (21%) showed significant inhibition (greater than 50%) of cytoadherence for at least one isolate. Anti-malarial IgG antibody titres were determined for all 57 sera ...
