Malaria - advances in vaccines

Current Opinion in Infectious Diseases 8(5): 322-327
Malaria - advances in vaccines
Clinical trials with candidate malaria vaccines have given moderate to poor protection levels. Recent studies designed to improve immunity are reviewed, with reference to pre-erythrocytic stage vaccines (sporozoites and intrahepatic schizogony), asexual stage vaccines (SPf66), anti-disease immunity and parasite diversity, and transmission-blocking immunity.
