Spontaneous rosette formation of uninfected erythrocytes around an erythrocyte infected with Plasmodium falciparum is a recently described in vitro phenomenon which is also present in infections with some other malarial species where sequestration of parasite infected erythrocytes is a characteristic. In the present studies, rosetting was established as a P. falciparum virulence factor, the expression of which is modified by a variety of host factors, such as host immunity, ABO blood group and… CONTINUE READING
