Reasons for malaria's drug resistance discovered

Science Daily - Malaria - December 11, 2014 - 19:20
Scientists have discovered, in a breakthrough study, exactly how the malaria parasite is developing resistance towards the most important front-line drugs used to treat the disease. Malaria is a mosquito-borne parasite which affects over 60 million people worldwide and in serious cases, can be fatal. There is currently no viable vaccine for malaria while antimalarial drugs and prophylaxis are losing its efficacy with increasing drug resistance.

Cause of malaria drug resistance in Southeast Asia identified

Science Daily - Malaria - December 11, 2014 - 19:20
Malaria drug resistance in Southeast Asia is caused by a single mutated gene in the disease-causing parasite, a study has found. This finding provides public health officials around the world with a way to look for pockets of emerging resistance and potentially eliminate them before they spread, researchers say.
