TI: Killing of Blood-Stage Murine Malaria Parasites by Hydrogen Peroxide. DT: June 23, 1982 AU: H.M. Dockrell and J.H.L. Playfair SO: Infection and Immunity, Vol. 39, No. 1, 1983, pp 456-459 AB: Both nonlethal Plasmodium yoelii and lethal Plasmodium berghei were killed in vitro by hydrogen peroxide at concentrations as low as 10(-5) M. Higher concentrations were required in the presence of added normal erythrocytes. Injection of hydrogen peroxide in vivo significantly reduced P. yoelii parasitemia but had less effect on P. berghei.
