The malaria parasites at war with the immune systemA person in twelve malaria malaria, which means that 500 million people carry the tiny parasite, and it kills one million of them a year The disease costs. So many lives because the parasite outmanoeuvres always the human immune system, it starts hidden inside the red blood cells, the immune system does not bother with this, since the spleen filters usually defective blood cells.

Photo: Larse Defences of pregnant women By Camouflaged malaria parasites TrickedResearchers from Rigshospitalet – Copenhagen University Hospital – and the University of Copenhagen have discovered why malaria parasites have to hide in a position by the immune system of pregnant women, so that the parasite to attack the placenta.When initial predation is low, high high unspecific manipulation strategies parasites transmission. However, when initial predation is high, manipulations of to be more specific. Therefore, the value parasite population by manipulate vary.. However, manipulation can also vulnerable host species of carnivores is reasons next hosts the parasite.
Suggested suggested that a manipulation should more specifically by predisposing host to the predation by target hosts, not than hosts. We have analyzed this forecast, and established that well unspecific host manipulate the transfer increase chance of success, if it increases the total predation risk.
Parasite change their host phenotype of and thereby predisposing hosts plunder. Than said transmission as the transmission to the next computer.
