Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: NIH study supports new approach for treating cerebral malaria

(NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke) Researchers at the National Institutes of Health found evidence that specific immune cells may play a key role in the devastating effects of cerebral malaria, a severe form of malaria that mainly affects young children. The results, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, suggest that drugs targeting T cells may be effective in treating the disease. The study was supported by the NIH Intramural Research Program.
