Disease tolerance: Linking sickness behaviours to metabolism helps mitigate malaria

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract / Description of output

Malaria-infected mice exhibit a range of sickness behaviours, and experience metabolic shifts and physiological pathologies that result in reduced energy expenditure. Treating sick mice with glucose increases disease tolerance by improving the physiological and behavioural symptoms of malaria infection without affecting parasite loads.
