Researchers found Key to Block Invasion of Malaria Parasite – TopNews Arab Emirates

Researchers found Key to Block Invasion of Malaria ParasiteAccording to a new report by scientists from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), a new vaccine is about to be launched against malaria within five years. Professor Peter Preiser, chair of NTU’s School of Biological Sciences, believes their ground breaking research could lead to a low cost vaccine. He said that this could help save lives of millions of people and prevent millions of dollars that are caused due to economic losses because of malaria sickness.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), fever and headaches are basically caused because of mosquito-borne diseases. But, an estimated number of 627,000 deaths have been reported the previous year, especially in African children.

Although, a vaccination has been developed by the British drug maker GlaxoSmithKline that shows some success over young children and infants, but still there is no such vaccine in market that helps prevent malaria.

As per the latest report, researchers have discovered a key process during the invasion of the blood cell by the Malaria parasite. It has been reported that they have found out the way to block the invasion of this disease.

Researchers said: “To prevent this invasion, we developed antibodies which can interfere with this invasion process”.
