Sammanfattning : Infectious diseases such as malaria and relapsing fever borreliosis (RF), cause severe human mortality and morbidity in developing countries. Malaria, caused by Plasmodium spp. parasites, is estimated by the World Health Organization to cause 1.5-2. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The two main causes of child mortality and morbidity in Africa are malaria and invasive bacterial diseases. In addition, co-infections in sub-Saharan Africa are the rule rather than the exception. However, not much is known about the host-pathogen interaction during a concomitant infection or how it affects the outcome of disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The interaction between nutritional status and malaria disease is complex and often controversial. Nutritional deficiencies (macro- or micro-nutrient) are thought to lead to malnutrition with subsequent susceptibility to malaria infection. On the other hand severe malaria or repeated malaria infections lead to malnutrition. LÄS MER
4. Structure-Assisted Design of Drugs Towards HIV-1 and Malaria Targets : Applied on Reverse Transcriptase and Protease from HIV-1 and Plasmepsin II from Plasmodium falciparum
Sammanfattning : Globally of today, acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and malaria are two of the most threatening diseases known to mankind. The World Health Organization estimated that AIDS and malaria together claimed nearly 4 million lives in 2003 and many more were infected by the causative agent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the Plasmodium falciparum (P.

5. Dissecting the complexity of human susceptibility to Plasmodium falciparum malaria: genetic approaches
Sammanfattning : There are many aspects of the immunology of P. falciparum infection that are not understood. Genetic approaches are of great value for dissecting the complexity of immune responses to malaria in natura by providing new insights into molecular interactions between the parasite and the host.
