Malaria: pathogenesis and treatment

Special Issue Call for Papers

Submission deadline
31 January 2020

Malaria continues to be one of the major public health concerns. Despite decades of research there is no widely used vaccine, and the effectiveness of antimalarial drugs is hampered by increasing resistance. Caused by the Plasmodium parasite, and transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito, malaria is widespread in the tropical countries. The World Health Organization estimates the burden of malaria at around 200 million cases and half a million deaths annually.

This Virulence Special Issue will investigate the current status of research into the pathogenesis of malaria, Plasmodium-host interactions, virulence factors and immune responses, diagnostics and treatment options, vaccine development and other topics.

Contributions are expected by Drs. Pradipsinh Rathod (University of Washington), John Harty (University of Iowa), Aubrey Cunnington (Imperial College London), W. Conrad Liles (University of Washington), Kevin Kain (Toronto General Hospital), Kim Williamson (Uniformed Services University), and Colin Sutherland (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine).
