Rationale and Abstract

Malaria is the largest infectious disease in the world. We have been conducting research and development on immunity, pathology, diagnosis and vaccines for malaria. In severe malaria, even if the protozoan is treated with antimalaria drugs, many pediatric patients die due to complications such as brain malaria and lung damage, so it is necessary to elucidate the pathology and improve the treatment method.
