erythrocyte membrane protein 1
Developing vaccines to prevent malaria in pregnant women.
Paris, France. In Expert Opin Biol Ther, 2014
EXPERT OPINION: The approach taken to develop a P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1-based vaccine to protect pregnant women is very promising in view of the current difficulties of achieving a sterilizing vaccine against malaria parasite.
Pathogenesis of cerebral malaria--inflammation and cytoadherence.
Liverpool, United Kingdom. In Front Cell Infect Microbiol, 2013
Recent data have suggested that a combination of parasite variant types, mainly defined by the variant surface antigen, P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1), its receptors, coagulation and host endothelial cell activation (or inflammation) are equally important.
Role of nonimmune IgG bound to PfEMP1 in placental malaria.
Stockholm, Sweden. In Science, 2001
Normal, nonimmune IgG that is bound to a duffy binding-like domain beta of the P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) might at the IE surface act as a bridge to neonatal Fc receptors of the placenta.
