Final Report - MPCM (Pathogenic role of MicroVesiculation in Cerebral Malaria)

Project ID: 37749
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the MPCM project which aimed to unravel the mechanisms of microparticles (MP) production, to delineate pharmacological ways to interfere with it, and to define the pathophysiological consequences of excessive MP production. The report offers a brief summary of the project and hopes that a better understanding of Celebral malaria (CM) pathogenesis should open new therapeutic avenues and lead to a better handling of patients, reduced malaria-associated mortality and morbidity by avoiding uncomplicated malaria to evolve in CM.
