An article featured in The Journal of Parasitology reviews the history of malaria research and examines the various approaches to that research. (PRWEB) March
Two teams have independently discovered that a single regulatory protein acts as the master genetic switch that triggers the development of male and female sexual forms (termed gametocytes) of the malaria parasite, solving a long-standing mystery in parasite biology with important implications for human health.
Findings by UC Riverside researchers could help build a new drug to kill the deadly parasite that is becoming resistant to existing drugs
Researchers have discovered a surprising diversity of malaria parasites in West African bats as well as new evidence of evolutionary jumps to rodent hosts.
Mosquitoes infected with the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum are significantly more attracted to human odors than uninfected mosquitoes.
Hebrew University researchers discover how the deadly malaria parasite evades the immune system and make progress toward developing a cure
In a breakthrough that could accelerate malaria vaccine and drug development, scientists announced today that, for the first time ever, human volunteers were infected with malaria via a simple injection of cryopreserved sterile parasites that were harvested from the salivary glands of infected mosquitoes in compliance with regulatory standards.
