Introduction: The mechanisms by which the protective immunity to Plasmodium is lost in the absence of continuous exposure to parasites are still not well understood. The IFN-³ produced during acute malaria (in both humans and mouse models) stimulates the immune responses to toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists by a mechanism called priming. Moreover, recently, our research group showed tha...
Malaria is responsible for approximately one million deaths annually, affecting mainly children. Immune system does an important role in protection against infection by Plasmodium, the causative agent of disease. Between the mechanisms involved in control of blood forms of the parasite, those mediated by antibodies appear to be fundamental. However, two recent studies developed by our r...
