Volume 7, Issue 3 , Summer 2010, Pages 150-161

Abstract
  Background: Cerebral malaria (CM) is one of the major causes of death in African populations infected with Plasmodium falciparum. Only 1% of infected subjects develop CM. The reasons for these differences are not fully understood, but it is likely that the host humoral response against blood-stage antigens ...  Read More
