Oxidative stress and rheology in severe malaria.

Abstract

There is mounting evidence that the release of haemozoin (beta-haematin), which is produced in large amounts during malaria infection and is released into the circulation during schizont rupture, is associated with damage to cell membranes through an oxidative mechanism.
