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.
In this editorial the authors discuss conventional diagnostic approaches and alternative diagnostic tests, which could be used in the future.
Researchers have demonstrated that a new whole-parasite vaccine could provide up to 100% protection in clinical trials carried out at the University of Tübingen (Germany).
New research links clusters of virulence-associated pir genes in malaria parasites with their ability to persist in the body, sustaining transmission once symptoms have subsided.
