The value of isolating and studying temperature sensitive mutants of Plasmodium falciparum


Acta Leidensia 60(1): 177-179
The value of isolating and studying temperature sensitive mutants of Plasmodium falciparum
Live vaccines are often more effective than those constructed from extracts of organism or defined immunogenic components. In the case of Plasmodium falciparum, obtaining an attenuated parasite will not be easily achieved. In this article, it is reasoned that temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants of P. falciparum could form the basis for constructing a live vaccine.
