Malaria parasite specific TH1-like cells simultaneously reduce parasitaemia and promote disease
CD4+ T cells have been implicated in immunity to the blood stages of malaria and cytokines associated with both monocyte and T cell activation have been implicated in disease. To determine whether specific T cells capable of inhibiting parasite growth can also mediate pathology we have transfused populations of Plasmodium berghei-specific T cells into normal and immunodeficient naive mice. We observed that they could inhibit parasite growth but were unable to save the animals which exhibited...[Show more]
