Injection versus infection: the cellular immunology of parasitism

, : Injection versus infection: the cellular immunology of parasitism. Parasitology Today 3(4): 106-111

A proposed new mechanism of immune evasion in falciparum malaria (overstimulation of B-cells) is discussed. Differences in the cellular immunology of vaccination as distinct from chronic parasitism at the level of B-cells and TH-cells are discussed. It is proposed that antigen-based selection leads to increased frequencies of B-cells with high affinity receptors for antigen and thus increased production of high affinity antibodies.

Therefore, the decontamination process is applied in the method...
