malaria vaccine

LONDON, July 24 (Reuters) - The world's first malaria vaccine got a green light on Friday from European drugs regulators
Every day, 1,200 children succumb to malaria, deaths that could easily be prevented with effective and low-cost interventions
Every day in Africa, more than 1,500 children die of malaria -- but that might not be the case for long. A pharmaceutical
"This is a milestone," Sanjeev Krishna of St George's University of London, who reviewed the paper, told the BBC. A malaria
Now, researchers noted that an important next step is figuring out how to make the vaccine more feasible to deliver, as right
As a global community, our fates are often more intertwined than we like to imagine. Controlling malaria isn't only a prospect of preventing needless deaths, it is an economic imperative.
It would be a grave calamity to allow millions of children to lose their protection and wipe away our $10 billion investment to date by allowing resurgences in malaria to occur.
To a technical community accustomed to other vaccines that routinely provide 80%, 90%, or even 95% protection, the new potential Malaria vaccine's level of protective efficacy is considered almost disappointing.
The development of the world's first vaccine against malaria is an extraordinary scientific breakthrough, but there are several reasons to be cautious about the difference this vaccine could make, on the basis of current results.
We have never had a vaccine for a parasitic disease, and the scientific complexity is dizzying. But at this week's Malaria Forum, I was pleased to announce the interim results of a trial for a vaccine candidate.
Another, more common chance to get an "adrenaline rush" in a public health research career is when you "break the code" on an experiment, like a vaccine trial.
Nobody knows why Cambodia's malaria parasites are such buffed-up hyper-Darwinian winners. Some scientists think it's because the treatments have been used there so long that the parasites have a head-start.
Today, me and my colleagues from Cameroon, Germany and the United States announced our discovery of the origin of malaria.
