Erythrocytic iron deficiency enhances susceptibility to Plasmodium chabaudi infection in mice carrying a missense mutation in transferrin receptor 1
The treatment of iron deficiency in areas of high malaria transmission is complicated by evidence which suggests that iron deficiency anemia protects against malaria, while iron supplementation increases malaria risk. Iron deficiency anemia results in an array of pathologies, including reduced systemic iron bioavailability and abnormal erythrocyte physiology; however, the mechanisms by which these pathologies influence malaria infection are not well defined. In the present study, the response...[Show more]
