A Chemiluminescent-Western Blot Assay for Quantitative Detection of Plasmodium falciparum Circumsporozoite Protein

Highly sensitive and reliable assays based on the quantitation of immunologically relevant component(s) in recombinant or whole parasite-based vaccines would facilitate pre-clinical and clinical phases and the monitoring of malaria vaccine deployment. This article, published in the Journal of Immunological Methods, reports a laboratory-grade Western Blot assay for quantitative detection of Plasmodium falciparum circumsporozoite protein in P. falciparum sporozoite and in recombinant product. ABSTRACT ONLY. (Learn how users in developing countries can gain free access to journal articles.)
