Plasmodiun vivax and cytoadherence. The figure questions (?) the lack of adherence to the placenta (I), endothelial receptors (II), spleen (III) and the role of Vir proteins (IV) in this cytoadherence as reviewed in this issue by Costa el al., p. 79-84. In addition, the figure highlights key biological features of the asexual blood stages of P. vivax. Within the liver, this parasite differentiates into tissue schizonts or into a dormant stage called a hypnozoite. During the erythrocytic stages, P. vivax merozoites predominantly, if not exclusively, invade reticulocytes. In addition, P. vivax differentiate into mature round gametocytes.
