The purpose of this book is to analyze and determine how a host responds to a blood stage malaria infection. It focuses on strategies for anti-malarial vaccination, genetic control of host resistance to malaria, and the contribution of the host genetic background to resistance or susceptibility to malaria. This book is an important reference work for anyone who studies the field of microbiology, immunology, or parasitology.
