The use of asexual blood-stage proteins as malaria vaccines is strongly supported by experimental data directly implicating antibodies induced by these antigens in parasite clearance and protection from re-challenge. The selection of blood-stage antigens is based on their ability to interfere with the pathogenesis of clinical malaria by reducing… CONTINUE READING
