Prospects for Immunisation Against Malaria

Malaria remains the most lethal of the human parasitic diseases, widely distributed in tropical areas (Fig. 1), and having an estimated incidence of 150 million cases per annum. In tropical Africa alone the annual mortality is about 1 million, mainly amongst children, and approximately 15% of all clinical illness is attributed to malaria. Eradication measures based upon vector control and prophylactic therapy have proved inadequate in Africa and of only transitory benefit in countries such as Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan where the current resurgence of malaria is a source of grave alarm.
