Abstract

PfRH5 has recently emerged as a strong vaccine candidate for Plasmodium falciparum malaria. Antibodies inhibit invasion of erythrocytes by merozoites and blood-stage replication, and PfRH5 is a significant target of acquired human immunity. Recent studies have shown protective efficacy of PfRH5 vaccines in a non-human primate model of malaria.
