The immune system of malaria infected host undergoes both activation and suppression during different phases of parasite’s life cycle. In Plasmodium chabaudi chabaudi (AS), T helper cells of host have been reported to be necessary for inducing a protective immune response against the blood stages of parasite [1]. T cells provide protection to infection by cytokine-mediated mechanisms or through production of antibodies. Experiments with B cell deficient mice have demonstrated that B cells and antibodies are essential for complete clearance of parasites from blood of the host [2]. Depending upon the cytokines secreted by the Helper T cells, they are classified into two subpopulations: Th1 and Th2 cells. Th1 cells primarily release IFN-γ, IL-2, whereas, Th2 cells secrete IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-10 and IL-13.
