Malaria vaccine development paves way for protective therapy

Science Daily - Malaria - February 18, 2014 - 15:13
Scientists have made a significant contribution towards the development of a vaccine to prevent malaria. Until now, developing malaria vaccines has been challenging. A vaccine must incorporate key proteins from the malaria parasites, which will trigger production of antibodies by the immune system. These proteins have a complex, intricate structure that is hard to reproduce. Scientists have now found a novel way to produce proteins that could lead to malaria vaccines being easy and cheap to manufacture. They have grown them inside a tiny single-celled aquatic creature, whose biological make-up is similar to that of the malaria parasite. The organism, and the protein, can multiply quickly in the lab.

Environment influences ability of bacterium to block malaria transmission

Science Daily - Malaria - February 17, 2014 - 13:59
The environment significantly influences whether or not a certain bacterium will block mosquitoes from transmitting malaria, according to researchers. The scientists divided two types of mosquitoes into an uninfected control group and a group infected with Wolbachia. Next, the team raised all groups of mosquitoes in incubators set to different experimental temperatures -- 68, 72, 75, 79 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. At 82 degrees Fahrenheit, Wolbachia reduced the number of mosquitoes infected by malaria parasites and the number of malaria parasites within each mosquito. At 75 degrees, Wolbachia had no effect on prevalence of malaria parasites. At 68 degrees Fahrenheit, Wolbachia had no effect on prevalence of parasites.
