T-cell antigens and epitopes in malaria vaccine design


Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology 155: 65-78
T-cell antigens and epitopes in malaria vaccine design
The role of T-cell antigens and epitopes in the design of malaria vaccines are discussed under the headings: sporozoite immunity; the T-cell response to the circumsporozoite protein; blood-stage immunity; and transmission-blocking immunity.
