Malaria vaccine research has generally focused upon single parasite derived proteins for the development of a sub-unit vaccine. However, many of these proteins are highly variable and are unable to elicit protective responses to multiple strains. A vaccine approach utilizing the whole parasite is advantageous as it contains multiple parasite antigens, including those that are conserved between parasite strains. The discovery of the apicoplast, a structure found in all malaria parasites… CONTINUE READING
