    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Wenner-Grens institut för experimentell biologi

    Författare :Manijeh Vafa Homann; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plasmodium falciparum; Malaria; Immunity; Ethnic groups; Mali; Senegal; Genetic factors; IL-4; IL-10; Polymorphism; MOI; RBC variants; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology Immunology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi 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

  4. 4. State Capacity and Development in Francophone West Africa

  5. 5. Immunological characteristics of recombinant fragments of the Plasmodium falciparum blood-stage antigen Pf332

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : The Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University

    Författare :Halima A. Balogun; Stockholms universitet.; [2011]

    Sammanfattning : Effective malaria vaccine might help improve control strategies against malaria, but the complexity of interactions between the parasite and its hosts poses challenges. The asexual blood stage P. falciparum antigen Pf332 has potentials as one of the proteins in understanding the complex host-parasite interactions. LÄS MER
