The molecular genetic approach to malarial pathogenesis and immunity.

Abstract

It is poorly understood why some malarial infections are fatal while others resolve without complications. Host genetic factors are partly responsible. More than ten specific susceptibility determinants have already been defined, including both structural and regulatory polymorphisms of erythyrocytes and of the immune system, and it is likely that many more… (More)
