Host gene expression patterns could be utilized to accurately diagnose malaria according to research presented at ECCMID 2017 on World Malaria Day.
Two proteins, crucial for enabling the cell traversal activity of malarial parasites, have been identified by a team of researchers who hope these could be targeted in drug or vaccine development.
Researchers have uncovered the role of inflammasome activation in leishmaniasis progression and severity, demonstrating that inhibiting these pathways may present a potential avenue for future treatments.
