The Molecular Approaches to Malaria Conference takes place in Australia, and a study into the long-term side effects of antimalarials could not identify any sufficient evidence of association between malaria prophylaxis and adverse health effects.
Scientists identify two proteins that are essential for the malaria parasite’s genetic malleability, and the substance responsible for ‘rosette’ formation in human red blood cells is identified.
Scientists find that the EphA2 protein mediates a critical stage of cerebral malaria and data scientists construct a statistical modelling framework of malaria seasonality in Madagascar.
Scientists identify the process by which the malaria parasite imports sugar, a potential target for inhibiting parasitic development.
Use of the tobacco mosaic virus platform to administer malaria antigens induces high and durable efficacy in macaques and individuals with an African-centric genetic variation may have an improved response to malaria.
Malaria antibodies in pregnant women may be a marker of exposure, not protection, from malaria and a combination of antimalarial drugs is less efficacious than if used in tandem.
Single-cell genome processing yields surprising results about the origin of complex malaria and study finds that the management of malaria in children at schools is ineffective.
A mechanism of resistance to artemisinin is identified and researchers find that breastfeeding could help to prevent malaria in babies.
Researchers from the Pasteur Institute discover molecules that can kill the malaria parasite and researchers from LSTM identify a resistance mechanism for insecticides used on bed nets.
