Impact of schistosoma hematobium infection on immunological and
clinical aspects of P. falciparum malaria in children
EDCTP Project Call
Senior Fellowship (SF)
This project aimed to study the impact of S. haematobium infection on P.
falciparum malaria induced immune response and clinical features in
school children residing in two communities in the vicinity of Lambaréné
(PK15 and PK17), where the malaria incidence rate is 1.3 person-years.
The research questions to be answered by the project are:
1. How are plasmodia-specific pro-inflammatory Th1 and Th17
immune responses affected by coinfection with S. haematobium?
2. How does S. haematobium infection influence the clinical and
parasitological profile of P.falciparum malaria?
