    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

  2. 2. Host responses to malaria and bacterial co-­infections

    Författare :Maria Nelson; Johan Normark; Sven Bergström; Anna Fahlgren; Olle Stendahl; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Plasmodium; Malaria; Borrelia; S. pneumoniae; Co-infection; Immunology; Metabolomics;

    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

  3. 3. Relation of nutritional status, immunity, hemoglobinopathy and falciparum malaria infection

    Författare :Alice Nyakeriga; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Thomas Williams; Clara Menendez; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Iron deficiency; nutrition; anthropometric indexes; malaria; hemoglobinopathies; immunity; Immunology; Immunologi;

    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. 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

    Författare :Jimmy Lindberg; Torsten Unge; Alexander Wlodawer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; X-ray crystallography; Drug design; HIV-1; Malaria; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    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. 5. Dissecting the complexity of human susceptibility to Plasmodium falciparum malaria: genetic approaches

    Författare :Valentina D Mangano; Marita Troye-Blomberg; Marta Alarcon; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; immunology; genetics; malaria; Immunology; Immunologi; immunologi; Immunology;

    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.
