Malaria toxins: TNF-mediated phenomena

, : Malaria toxins: TNF-mediated phenomena. Parasitology Today 12(7): 290

The correspondents agree with Kwiatkowski [Parasitology Today (1995) 11, 463] that, because some symptoms of malaria (such as hypoglycaemia) can accompany fever, it should not be assumed that they too are mediated by tumour necrosis factor. They briefly discuss studies supporting this view.

In infected branches, gummosis of the phloem and cortical tissues, and especially of the xylem, is probably the first obstacle to the spread of fungal products. Fusicoccin does not combine chemically with the gum. The toxins cannot spread easily t...

In this review the old concept of severe malaria as a toxic disease is re-examined in the light of recent discoveries in the field of cytokines. Animal studies suggest that the induction of TNF by parasite-derived molecules may be partly responsib...
