Using genome-wide expression profiles from persons either experimentally challenged with malaria-infected mosquitoes or naturally infected with Plasmodium falciparum malaria, we present details of the transcriptional changes that occur with infection and that either are commonly shared between subjects with presymptomatic and clinically apparent malaria or(More)
BACKGROUND This study advances the clinical development of the RTS,S/AS01B candidate malaria vaccine to malaria endemic populations. As a primary objective it compares the safety and reactogenicity of RTS,S/AS01B to the more extensively evaluated RTS,S/AS02A vaccine. METHODOLOGY A Phase IIb, single centre, double-blind, controlled trial of 6 months(More)
We report the first safety and immunogenicity trial of the Plasmodium falciparum malaria blood stage vaccine candidate, FMP1/AS02A consisting of the FMP1 antigen, an Escherichia coli-expressed His-tagged fusion protein from the 42 kDa C-terminal fragment from the 3D7 clone of the merozoite surface protein 1 formulated in the AS02A adjuvant. An open label,(More)
A randomized controlled trial compared recovery characteristics after selective spinal anaesthesia (SSA) or propofol general anaesthesia (GA) for short-duration outpatient laparoscopic surgery. Forty women were randomized to receive either SSA (1% lidocaine 10 mg, sufentanil 10 microg and sterile water 1.8 ml) or GA (propofol and nitrous oxide 50% in(More)
A soluble Plasmodium falciparum antigen that specifically stimulates gammadelta T cells has been found associated predominantly with schizonts rather than ring forms, trophozoites, or gametocytes. This schizont-associated antigen (SAA) is resistant to protease digestion, is anionic at pH 8.5, is heat- and pH-resistant, and contains a phosphate group(s) that(More)
Malaria vaccine RTS,S combined with thrombospondin-related anonymous protein (TRAP) and formulated with AS02A (RTS,S+TRAP/AS02A) is safe and immunogenic in adult humans and rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta). Here, RTS,S+TRAP/AS02A was administered on a 0-, 1-, and 3-month schedule to three cohorts of infant monkeys, along with adult comparators. Cohort 1(More)
