The Zika Virus (ZIKV) is an arbovirus of the genus Flavivirus, transmitted through the bite of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which has recently become a public health problem. In the Americas there have been over 200.000 confirmed cases of Zika fever (ZF), with over 60% of those in Brazil alone.

Cerebral malaria (CM) is a severe neurological complication of infection with Plasmodium falciparum. Even after the appropriate antimalarial treatment, f...
Studies on Plasmodium vivax biology and immunopathogenesis have long been neglected due to the relatively reduced pathology compared to P. falciparum malaria. Detection of all parasite stages in blood circulation also suggested absence of significant levels of tissue sequestration in P. vivax, further supporting the lack of severe symptoms. However, several recent observations have chal...
