Promiscuity of clinical Plasmodium falciparum isolates for multiple adhesion molecules under flow conditions.

Abstract

The central pathologic process in severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria is the cytoadherence of parasitized erythrocytes to capillary and postcapillary venular endothelium, with resultant tissue hypoxia, metabolic disturbances, and multiorgan dysfunction. The molecular basis of this process has been studied extensively using static adhesion assays. In the… (More)
