Abstract

The goal of this investigation is to analyze the bibliographical references that are registered in the IEDB database regarding the linear B-cell epitopes responsible for Plasmodium falciparum malaria in humans during the temporal period 1984 to 2018. The geographical origin of the samples and the relevant journals were obtained for the linear B-cell epitopes in Plasmodium falciparum according to the Similarity Index. This methodology can be applied to another disease.
