    Transcriptional correlates of malaria in RTS,S/AS01-vaccinated African children: a matched case–control study

    Gemma Moncunill et al.
    Prevaccination levels of transcriptional modules related to monocytes, dendritic cells, and other immune categories correlate with clinical malaria risk in RTS,S/AS01E-vaccinated African children, suggesting that certain monocyte subsets may inhibit RTS,S/AS01E-induced protective responses.
