Malaria, Immune Responses
Protection of the infected host is measured via two parameters: protection against disease and protection against parasitaemia. The acquisition of natural immunity seems to be able to completely protect the host against disease, but is ineffective against eliminating parasites from the host. This is evidenced by reports of asymptomatic malaria infections, which are rather common in regions with high malaria transmission.
