The development and ultrastructure of Plasmodium falciparum damaged in vitro by human "crisis" sera and by chloroquine

, : The development and ultrastructure of Plasmodium falciparum damaged in vitro by human "crisis" sera and by chloroquine. Australian Journal of Experimental Biology and Medical Science 63: 9-18

P. falciparum malaria was cultured in vitro in the presence of sera from patients with cerebral malaria, meningitis and also after chloroquine administration. Intra-erythrocytic parasite damage was seen by light and electron microscopy. The significance of the results is discussed with relevance to non-specific immune mechanisms, and the damage induced by these mechanisms compared with that from chloroquine.

We have previously shown that 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-(OH)2D3] and glucocorticoid modulate adenylate cyclase activation by PTH in osteoblast-like cells. Here we examined whether steroid effects on PTH receptor density explain the modulation...
