Malaria : Immune evasion by malaria parasite , diversity of P. falciparum genetic.
Institute of Endemic diseases
prof.Ahmed Musa Mudawi
Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Plasmodium falciparum malaria is responsible for 2 million deaths each year. Even in endemic regions, immunity to malaria builds slowly and is rarely complete. Antigenic variation and antigenic diversity are critical to a parasite's ability to evade the host immune response and infect previously exposed individuals. In this Research, the phenomenon of antigenic variation is discussed in relation to immune evasion and its impact on parasite pathogenesis. as well as understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms of antigenic variation.
