BACKGROUND To further increase the efficacy of malaria vaccine RTS,S/AS02A, we tested the RTS,S antigen formulated using the AS01B Adjuvant System (GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals). METHODS In a… Expand
Membrane glycoprotein CD36: a review of its roles in adherence, signal transduction, and transfusion medicine.
Acute eosinophilic pneumonia among US Military personnel deployed in or near Iraq.
CONTEXT Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (AEP) is a rare disease of unknown etiology characterized by respiratory failure, radiographic infiltrates, and eosinophilic infiltration of the lung. … Expand
Live Attenuated Malaria Vaccine Designed to Protect Through Hepatic CD8+ T Cell Immunity
The efficacy of a sporozoite-based malaria vaccine is tested in humans, nonhuman primates, and mice. Our goal is to develop a vaccine that sustainably prevents Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) malaria in… Expand
Glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchors of Plasmodium falciparum: molecular characterization and naturally elicited antibody response that may provide immunity to malaria pathogenesis.
Induction of proinflammatory cytokine responses by glycosylphosphatidylinositols (GPIs) of intraerythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum is believed to contribute to malaria pathogenesis. In this study, we… Expand
Common and Divergent Immune Response Signaling Pathways Discovered in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cell Gene Expression Patterns in Presymptomatic and Clinically Apparent Malaria
ABSTRACT Using genome-wide expression profiles from persons either experimentally challenged with malaria-infected mosquitoes or naturally infected with Plasmodium falciparum malaria, we present… Expand

ABSTRACT A highly sensitive genus-specific quantitative reverse transcriptase real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) assay for detection of Plasmodium has been developed. The assay amplifies total nucleic acids… Expand
Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes bind ICAM-1 at a site distinct from LFA-1, Mac-1, and human rhinovirus
The attachment of erythrocytes infected with P. falciparum to human venular endothelium is the primary step leading to complications from severe and cerebral malaria. Intercellular adhesion… Expand

After initial successful evaluation of the circumsporozoite-based vaccine RTS,S/SBAS2, developed by SmithKline Beecham Biologicals with the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, protective efficacy… Expand
Phase 1/2a Study of the Malaria Vaccine Candidate Apical Membrane Antigen-1 (AMA-1) Administered in Adjuvant System AS01B or AS02A
Background This Phase 1/2a study evaluated the safety, immunogenicity, and efficacy of an experimental malaria vaccine comprised of the recombinant Plasmodium falciparum protein apical membrane… Expand
