Abstract
Plasmodium chabaudi-susceptible NMRI and B10.A mice were vaccinated with host cell plasma membranes isolated from P. chabaudi-infected erythrocytes.

Vaccination also induced the production of antibodies against Pc90, which is the immunodominant protein expressed by parasites in host cell plasma membranes.
