Internationally respected scientists and clinicians describe in step-by-step detail their most useful conventional and cutting-edge techniques for the study of malaria. Areas covered include clinical and laboratory diagnosis and typing, animal models, molecular biology, immunology, cell biology, vaccinology, laboratory models, and field applications. Each readily reproducible protocol has been tested, standardized, and optimized for experimental success, and includes many laboratory notes on troubleshooting, avoiding pitfalls, and interpreting results. Several of the most widely used methods are described here in detail for the first time or have been thoroughly updated since their original publication (e.g., in vitro culture of Plasmodium parasites and in vitro growth inhibition assay).

Editorial Reviews

"In this book, internationally respected scientists and clinicians describe in step-by-step detail their most useful conventional and cutting-edge techniques for the study of malaria." - Clinical Laboratory International"This is an outstanding collection of protocols written by over eighty experts in the field. The geographical spread of these contributors is impressive, encompassing writers from thirteen countries on six continents. There is good stylistic continuity throughout the book, despite the diversity of the authors...there is admirable cross-referencing between chapters." -Molecular Biotechnology
