This evidence suggests that malaria may be an attractive target for a new generation of CTL inducing vaccines.

This was a study of the safety, immunogenicity and limited efficacy of a recombinant Plasmodium falciparium circumsporozoite vaccine. The study was carried out in the early nineties using healthy m ...

  • Legalizing Marijuana - 1,066 words

  • Magic Realism - 1,411 words
    Magic Realism Magic Realism appeared as a critical term for the arts and it later extended to literature. The term was first used by the German critic Franz Roh in 1925 to characterize a group of Post-Expressionist painters. Franz Roh described it as a form in which "our real world re-emerges before our eyes, bathed in the clarity of a new day." It was later replaced by "New Objectivity."

A magic realist narrator creates the illusion of "unreality," faking the escape from the natural ...
