BACKGROUND Genetic diversity has provided Plasmodium falciparum with the potential capacity of avoiding the immune response, and possibly supported the natural selection of drug or vaccine-resistant parasites. Merozoite surface protein-3 (MSP-3) has been used to develop vaccines and investigate the genetic diversity regarding P. falciparum malaria in Iran. OBJECTIVES The main goal of this study was to analyze the polymorphic antigen MSP-3 genes across southeast of Iran among four different… CONTINUE READING
