    Title: “Optimising serological markers of recent exposure to Plasmodium vivax

    Speaker: Caitlin Bourke, PhD Student from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Melbourne, Australia


    The dormant hypnozoite reservoir of Plasmodium vivax is a large part of the challenge for the successful elimination of P. vivax. There is currently no diagnostic to detect that an individual is infected with a hypnozoite. However, serological biomarkers have the potential to provide a novel method for the identification of these individuals and a possible new strategy to target the P. vivax hypnozoite reservoir. We tested different fragments of the current top predictor of recent infection and found antibody responses are conserved amongst some, but not all of these recombinant protein fragments
