Abstract
<br/>Malaria remains the single most important parasitic disease of man in tropical regions of the world. It is estimated that 40% of the world's population, in 102 <em></em> countries, is at risk from the disease. Some 100-200 million cases occur annually worldwide, of which 90 million in Africa, with 1-2 million deaths.<p>Efforts to control malaria by chemoprophylactic and/or curative drugs are seriously jeopardized due to widespread parasite resistance, and <em>Anopheles</em> mosquito vectors are rapidly developing physiological resistance against insecticides commonly used for indoor spraying or impregnation of bed nets. Trials with the malaria vaccine SPf66...
