  1. 1. Single nucleotide polymorphisms related to immune responses in Plasmodium falciparum malaria

    Författare :Amre Nasr; Klavs Berzins; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Gehad ElGhazali; Thor Theander; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; FcγRIIa-R H131; CRP genotypes; GM KM allotypes; IgG; and malaria; Sudan; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : The current research is directed towards dissection of host genetic factors involved in host immune response and the malaria disease outcome. A possible association between FcγRIIa polymorphism and anti-malarial antibody (A.M.A) responses were investigated in Sudanese patients in relation to clinical outcome of falciparum malaria. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Human genetic factors involved in immunity to Plasmodium falciparum infection

    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasmodium falciparum; Malaria; Immunity; Ethnic groups; Mali; Senegal; Genetic factors; IL-4; IL-10; Polymorphism; MOI; RBC variants; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : This study investigated the associations between IL-4 -590 C/T and IL-10 -1087 A/G polymorphisms and malariometric indexes in the Fulani and the Dogon ethnic groups living in sympatry in Mali and differing in susceptibility to malaria. The correlations between antibodies level and parasitological data as well as splenomegaly were assessed. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Plasmodium falciparum is a leading cause of death among children under the age of five and pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa. More than one third of the world’s population is at risk of contracting malaria, and 70 % of the cases are found in sub-Saharan Africa. LÄS MER
