T-cell antigenic sites of the malaria circumsporozoite protein

Blood 74(3): 895-900

T-cell antigenic sites of the malaria circumsporozoite protein

The importance of T-cells in immunity to Plasmodium sporozoites, and in the development of a malaria vaccine is dicussed under the headings: sporozoite immunity; CD4 T-cell activation; CD8 T-cell activation.
