A Thermal Exhaust Port on the Death Star of Plasmodium falciparum-Infected Erythrocytes.
Eliciting reliable and effective immunity against Plasmodium falciparum parasites remains an elusive goal in malaria control. Raj and colleagues recently described a naturally occurring human antibody response to a parasite antigen that initiates apoptosis-like cell death of parasites, adding fascinating insight into host-pathogen dialog that may furnish actionable targets for antiparasite therapies or vaccines.
