|Research highlights role of molecule that directs immune response in cases of malaria|
The molecular pathways involved in activation and regulation of the immune response are important targets for studies aiming to produce vaccines and to develop new therapeutic approaches. The cells of the immune system recognize not only Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs), but also intracellular molecules named DAMPs (Damage-Associated Molecular Patterns), such as ATP, that ...
Malaria is responsible for one million deaths yearly, mostly affecting children. The immune system participates in the protection against Plasmodium infection, such as malaria syndromes like anemia, cerebral malaria, metabolic acidosis and systemic shock. Recently, it has been shown that innate immunity is able to detect signals such as ATP and uric acid released by damaged cells or tis...
