Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In the past decade, one of the most intriguing subjects in understanding the mechanism of malaria infection has been explanation of the role of Kupffer cells. These liver cells, which play an important part in the body's defense against infection, seemed to have on essential supportive role in the homing o f sporozoites. Do Kupffer cells favor the establishment of primary malaria infection? Extensive research has revealed much, but still not everything we need to know about the sporozoite-Kupffer cell affair.
