Activation of the host response in human Plasmodium falciparum malaria: relation of parasitemia to tumor necrosis factor/cachectin, thrombin-antithrombin III, and protein C levels.
PURPOSE Hemostatic alterations and elevated tumor necrosis factor/cachectin (TNF alpha) serum levels may contribute to the pathogenesis of organ complications in human Plasmodium falciparum malaria.Expand

Neither heparin nor acetylsalicylic acid influence the clinical course in human Plasmodium falciparum malaria: a prospective randomized study.
Procoagulant alterations and thrombocytopenia in falciparum malaria correlate with parasitemia, serum levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha), and clinical severity. Thus, heparin orExpand

Low levels of fibrin-stabilizing factor (factor XIII) in human Plasmodium falciparum malaria: correlation with clinical severity.
Plasmodium falciparum malaria is associated with procoagulant activity but not with thromboembolism. We measured coagulation factor XIII, i.e., fibrin-stabilizing factor, in 45 patients withExpand

Stronger host response per parasitized erythrocyte in Plasmodium vivax or ovale than in Plasmodium falciparum malaria
Objective and methods  Fever tends to start at a lower level of parasitemia in Plasmodium vivax or ovale than in P. falciparum malaria, but hyperparasitemia and complications are more likely to occurExpand

Inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone and hyponatremia in severe falciparum malaria.
Overhydration can contribute to fatal complications of falciparum malaria, even though renal function may be normal. In this context, the role of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (ADH)Expand
