Assessment of anti-merozoite antibody function in the context of blood-stage malaria vaccine development

Abstract:

In regions endemic for malaria, natural exposure results in an acquired immunity which protects individuals from severe disease. However, no vaccine against the blood-stage of malaria, against which naturally-acquired immunity is targeted, currently exists that is capable of emulating, or out-performing, natural protection.
