Antibodies to ring-infected erythrocyte surface antigen (Pf155/RESA) protect against P. falciparum parasitemia in highly exposed multigravidas women in Malawi.

Abstract

To determine whether antibodies to defined B-cell epitopes of Plasmodium falciparum antigens were related to protection against parasitemic attacks in highly exposed pregnant women, two samples of 235 with no initial P. falciparum parasitemia (NP) and 89 multigravidas who presented initial P. falciparum parasitemia (IP) were enrolled in an antimalarial… (More)
