Epstein-Barr virus co-infection may boost malaria mortality in childhood

Malaria researchers are calling attention to a trouble-maker whose effects may be underappreciated: Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Their experiments with mice show that co-infection with a virus closely re...

Medtech meets cleantech: Malaria vaccine candidate produced from algae

Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine used algae as a mini-factory to produce a malaria parasite protein. The algae-produced protein, paired with an immune-boosting coc...

Study in Myanmar confirms artemisinin-resistant malaria close to border with India

The spread of malaria parasites that are resistant to the drug artemisinin - the frontline treatment against malaria infection - into neighbouring India would pose a serious threat to the global contr...

Lessons learnt from the first controlled human malaria infection study conducted in Nairobi, Kenya.

Controlled human malaria infection (CHMI) studies, in which healthy volunteers are infected with Plasmodium falciparum to assess the efficacy of novel malaria vaccines and drugs, have become a vital t...

The role of Vitamin D in malaria.

An abnormal calcium-parathyroid hormone (PTH)-vitamin D axis has been reported in patients with malaria infection. A role for vitamin D in malaria has been suggested by many studies. Genetic studies h...
