Study Sets Basis for Identifying Exosome-Carried Biomarkers of Latent Malaria Vivax Infections; Using Mouse Model, Research Team Characterized Protein Profile of Exosomes Released By Liver Cells, Where Latent Form of Parasite Hides

A new study led by scientists at the Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) in Spain and the IGTP uses a mouse model with human liver cells to characterize proteins associated with the latent form of the malaria parasite Plasmodium vivax. The findings lay the groundwork for identifying biomarkers of latent malaria vivax infections and moving forward in eliminating the disease. The study was published on October 1, 2022 in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. The open-access article is titled “Mass Spectrometry Identification of Biomarkers in Extracellular Vesicles from Plasmodium vivax Liver Hypnozoite Infections.”
