VAR2CSA is a large polymorphic Plasmodium falciparum protein expressed on infected erythrocytes (IE) that allows their binding in the placenta, thus precipitating placental malaria (PM). The N-terminal part of VAR2CSA that contains the binding site to placental chondroitin sulfate A (CSA) is currently recognized as the most attractive region for vaccine development. An ultimate challenge is to define epitopes in this region that induce a broad cross-reactive adhesion inhibitory antibody response.
