The establishment of a Plasmodium vivaxin vitro culture system is critical for the development of new vaccine, drugs and diagnostic tests. Although short-term cultures have been successfully set up, their reproducibility in laboratories without direct access to P. vivax-infected patients has been limited by the need for fresh parasite isolates. We explored the possibility of using parasite isolates and reticulocytes, both cryopreserved, to perform invasion and initiate short-term culture… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Reticulocytes from cryopreserved erythroblasts support Plasmodium vivax infection in vitro.
TLDR
An improved method of hematopoietic stem cell culture for P. vivax infection is reported, which requires less time and produces higher or equivalent percentage of reticulocytes than previously reported systems. Expand
Improvement of culture conditions for long-term in vitro culture of Plasmodium vivax
TLDR
An improved and feasible protocol for continuous culture of P. vivax was developed and three of 30 isolates could be maintained in vitro for over 26 months albeit parasite density is low. Expand
TOWARDS SUCCESSFUL ADAPTATION OF PLASMODIUM KNOWLESI TO LONG-TERM IN- VITRO CULTURE IN HUMAN ERYTHROCYTES
Plasmodium knowlesi, a simian malaria parasite, is widely used as a malaria model and now characterized as a clinically significant parasite that can lead to outbreaks throughout most countries inExpand
A Way Forward for Culturing Plasmodium vivax.
Trager and Jensen established a method for culturing Plasmodium falciparum, a breakthrough for malaria research worldwide. Since then, multiple attempts to establish Plasmodium vivax in continuousExpand
Plasmodium vivax in vitro continuous culture: the spoke in the wheel
TLDR
The most relevant aspects regarding P. vivax in vitroculture and host cell characteristics have been analysed in this review to explain possible reasons why the species’ continuous in vitro culture is so difficult to standardize. Expand
The In Vitro Invasion Inhibition Assay (IIA) for Plasmodium vivax.
  • W. Roobsoong

TLDR
The in vitro erythrocyte invasion inhibition assay (IIA) for P. vivax can be used as a powerful tool for blood-stage vaccine screening and the protocols in this chapter have been optimized to ensure that IIA becomes a more feasible and reliable assay. Expand
Long-term in vitro culture of Plasmodium vivax isolates from Madagascar maintained in Saimiri boliviensis blood
TLDR
Long-term culture of P. vivax in Saimiri RBCs provides an opening to stabilize patient isolates, which would serve as precious resources to apply new strategies for investigating the molecular and cellular biology of this important malaria parasite. Expand
Reticulocytes: Plasmodium vivax target cells
TLDR
The most recent studies related to obtaining reticulocytes are described and approaches which could contribute towards knowledge regarding molecular interactions between target cell proteins and their main infective agent, P. vivax are discussed. Expand
Plasmodium vivax: modern strategies to study a persistent parasite's life cycle.
TLDR
Plasmodium cynomolgi and other related simian species have identical biology and can serve as informative models of P. vivax infections, and two advantages of NHP models are that infections can be experimentally tailored to address hypotheses, including genetic manipulation. Expand
Enhanced Ex Vivo Plasmodium vivax Intraerythrocytic Enrichment and Maturation for Rapid and Sensitive Parasite Growth Assays
TLDR
A robust enrichment method is established and sensitive and robust measurements of parasite maturation are used to measure the sensitivities of Brazilian P. vivax isolate sensitivities to antimalarials for resistance surveillance and drug discovery. Expand

Short-term in vitro culture of field isolates of Plasmodium vivax using umbilical cord blood.
TLDR
A modified procedure to establish and maintain short-term cultures of freshly collected P. vivax parasites using reticulocyte-enriched cord blood is described, which can be easily adapted to study various aspects of the parasite biology. Expand
Plasmodium vivax: in vitro growth and reinvasion in red blood cells of Aotus nancymai.
TLDR
A strong positive correlation between the percentage of reticulocytes and in vitro invasion was demonstrated, and a preferential invasion into reticULocytes was demonstrated in vivo and in vivo using blood films stained with brilliant cresyl blue and counterstained with Giemsa. Expand
A reliable ex vivo invasion assay of human reticulocytes by Plasmodium vivax.
TLDR
A protocol for an ex vivo P vivax invasion assay that can be easily deployed in laboratories located in endemic countries is described, based on mixing enriched cord blood reticulocytes with matured, trypsin-treated P v Vivax schizonts concentrated from clinical isolates. Expand
Continuous in vitro propagation of the malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax.
TLDR
The ability to culture P. vivax opens new opportunities to develop vaccines, test drugs, and clone parasites for genome sequencing, as well as establishing a method to cycle parasite generations in continuous culture using human blood cells. Expand
Protein synthesis in vitro by cryopreserved Plasmodium falciparum.
TLDR
The specificity of protein synthesis as an activity of the parasites was shown by the inactivity of control uninfected erythrocytes stored by the same method, and evidence for the specificity of the reaction was obtained from inhibition studies with chloroquine. Expand
Production of erythropoietic cells in vitro for continuous culture of Plasmodium vivax.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that gRBCs derived in vitro from HSCs can provide susceptible Duffy(+) reticulocytes for continuous culture of P. vivax and discovered that parasites were able to invade nucleated erythroid cells or erythroblasts that are normally in the bone marrow. Expand
A simplified method for cryopreservation of Plasmodium falciparum from continuous in vitro cultures.
Human erythrocytes parasitized with Plasmodium falciparum, obtained from in vitro continuous cultures and stored at -185 degrees C and at -70 degrees C for several months, were successfullyExpand
Effective and cheap removal of leukocytes and platelets from Plasmodium vivax infected blood
TLDR
CF11 filtration is the most cost and time efficient method for the production of leukocyte- and platelet-free P. vivax-infected erythrocytes from field isolates. Expand
The Infection of Reticulocytes by Plasmodium Vivax 1
TLDR
A well-defined reticulocytosis developed during the latter part of the infections; about this time the terminal drop in the parasite density commenced and spontaneous termination of the attack preceded the return of the immature erythrocytes to normal numbers. Expand
Plasmodium vivax: isotopic, PicoGreen, and microscopic assays for measuring chloroquine sensitivity in fresh and cryopreserved isolates.
TLDR
Although the microscopic in vitro assay provides a useful method for characterizing the drug susceptibility phenotype of P. vivax isolates, its utility is limited by a laborious methodology and need for highly skilled microscopists. Expand
