Malaria pathogens under the X-ray microscope

X-ray microscopy at BESSY II reveals how antimalaria-drugs might work

04-Nov-2019

Malaria is one of the most threatening infectious diseases in the world. An international team has now been able to investigate malaria pathogens in red blood cells in vivo using the BESSY II X-ray microscope and the ALBA and ESRF synchrotron sources. The scientists reveal the mechanisms used by ...

Immune reaction causes malaria organ damage

Immune cells can be the body's defenders and foes at the same time

21-Oct-2019

Malaria is one of the world's deadliest infectious diseases: a small mosquito bite delivers numerous malaria parasites into the bloodstream. The human body defends itself valiantly against the parasite, which usually results in periodic flu-like symptoms and severe fever. Severe cases of the ...

Aҫaí berry extracts fight malaria in mice

18-Oct-2019

Despite humanity's best efforts to eradicate malaria, the disease struck more than 200 million people in 2017, according to the World Health Organization. Worse yet, the parasite that causes malaria is developing resistance to many antimalarial drugs, including the mainstay, chloroquine. ...

Nanovectors Could Improve the Combined Administration of Antimalarial Drugs

According to the study, the strategy has the added advantage of targeting the transmissible phase of the parasite- the gametocyte

12-Aug-2019

Encapsulating two drugs with different properties into nanovesicles surrounded by antibodies can greatly improve their delivery and efficacy, according toa study led by Xavier Fernández Busquets, director of the joint Nanomalaria unit at the Institute for Bionengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and ...

Multidrug-resistant malaria spreading in Asia

Study reveals importance of genomic surveillance for malaria control strategies

25-Jul-2019

Genomic surveillance has revealed that malaria resistance to two first-line antimalarial drugs has spread rapidly from Cambodia to neighbouring countries in Southeast Asia. Researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute, University of Oxford and Mahidol University, Bangkok, discovered that ...

Controlling deadly malaria without chemicals

Scientists identifies new tool to kill mosquitoes

01-Jul-2019

Scientists have finally found malaria's Achilles' heel, a neurotoxin that isn't harmful to any living thing except Anopheles mosquitoes that spread malaria. Nearly half the world's population lives in areas vulnerable to malaria which kills roughly 450,000 people per year, most of them children ...

Malaria: It’s all about the mosquito

The relative frequency of two mosquito species determines the risk of transmission to humans

03-Apr-2019

Mosquitoes transmit malaria, but not every malaria-infected mosquito is the same. An international team led by Elena Levashina from the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin has described in a new publication that some species of mosquitoes are better in transmitting Plasmodium ...

Images of antibodies working together against malaria

26-Oct-2018

Scientists investigating how the human immune system defends against malaria have uncovered a rare phenomenon: antibodies working together to bind to a vulnerable spot on the parasite. The new research shows that antibodies working together can result in a protein on the parasite's cell surface ...

Why malaria parasites are faster than human immune cells

25-Jul-2018

Malaria parasites of the genus Plasmodium move ten times faster through the skin than immune cells, whose job it is to capture such pathogens. Heidelberg scientists have now found a reason why the parasite is faster than its counterpart. They did this by studying actin, a protein that is ...

A well-known animal health drug could stop outbreaks of malaria and Zika virus

04-Jul-2018

Medicines given to household pets to kill fleas and ticks might be effective for preventing outbreaks of malaria, Zika fever and other dangerous insect-borne diseases that infect millions of people worldwide, according to a new study led by scientists at Calibr, a non-profit drug discovery ...
