The search for an effective malaria vaccine has yielded no success yet. Unfortunately, resistance to post-infection treatments is on the increase hence the need to develop an efficient vaccine. The aim of many reverse vaccinology studies is to identify novel proteins found exposed on the surface. Many malaria vaccine candidates can be effective tools against malaria but gross allelic polymorphism is a major hinderance which could be overcome by using highly conserved proteins. Also peptide… Expand
