Plasmodium vivax malaria remains one of the tropical diseases causing an enormous burden on global public health. Several proteins located on this parasite species' merozoite surface have been considered the most suitable antigens for being included in an anti-malarial vaccine, given the functional role they play during the parasite's interaction with red blood cells. The present study identifies and characterizes the P. vivax Pv12 surface protein which was evaluated by using molecular biology… CONTINUE READING
