A new, easy to use and highly sensitive test that detects malaria parasite in patients suffering from malaria has been developed in UK. It detects malaria with least number of parasites in the peripheral blood, where the conventional tests may fail.

Scientists have performed a successful test of a possible new drug in a mouse model of an autism disorder. The candidate drug, called NitroSynapsin, largely corrected electrical, behavioral and brain abnormalities in the mice. NitroSynapsin is intended to restore an electrical signaling...

Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and PATH’s Malaria Vaccine Initiative (MVI) have shed light on how the human immune system recognizes the malaria parasite though investigatio…

Artemisinin contains two oxygen atoms hooked together that break down in the presence of iron, by creating very reactive free radicals that kill malaria parasites and cancer cells. Both cancer cells and malaria parasites sequester iron, accumulating as much as 1000 times what normal cells store. Giving artemisinin to people with malaria or cancer results in destruction of these abnormal cells and leaves normal cells unaffected. Making artemisinin a cancer killing bomb!

Plasmodium parasites sickened more than 200 million people globally in 2010 and killed about Scientists discover chemical modification in human malaria parasite DNA! Could lead to new drugs!

An ingredient commonly found in toothpaste could be employed as an anti-malarial drug against strains of malaria parasite that have grown resistant to one of the currently-used drugs. This discovery at the University of Cambridge was aided by Eve an artificially-intelligent robot scientist. http://ift.tt/2Dorjk0

One of the major obstacles preventing the large scale application of the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) against mosquitoes is the requirement for efficient mosquito mass-rearing technology.

A new portable tool will now help doctors detect dengue virus-carrying mosquitoes and help reduce the likelihood of human infections around the world.

Emergence of artemisinin resistance on Thai-Myanmar border raises spectre of untreatable malaria. Evidence that the most deadly species of malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, is becoming resistant to frontline treatment for malaria on the border of Thailand and Myanmar is reported in the ‘Lancet’. This increases concern that resistance could now spread to India and then Africa, as resistance to other antimalarial drugs has done before. Eliminating malaria might then prove impossible.
