T-cell control of immunity to the asexual blood stages of the malaria parasite.

Abstract

Both antibody-dependent and antibody-independent mechanisms are involved in immune protection against the asexual blood stages of the malaria parasite. It is well established that T cells play a crucial role in both induction and maintenance of this immunity. Of the two T-cell subsets (CD4+, CD8+) carrying alpha/beta T-cell receptors, the CD4+ T cells are… (More)
