Discovery paves path forward in the fight against the deadliest form of malaria
Scientists have identified a key molecule involved in the development of cerebral malaria, a deadly form of the tropical disease. The study identifies a potential drug target and way forward toward alleviating this condition for which few targeted treatments are available.
Malaria fight stalling at 'unacceptably high level' of deaths: WHO
Malaria still infects millions of people every year and kills more than 400,000 — mostly children in Africa — because the fight against the mosquito-borne disease has stalled, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday.

A first-of-its-kind study reveals malaria spending in 2016 totaled $4.3 billion globally, far short of the annual funding target of $6.6 billion set by the World Health Organization.
Study finds potential new weapon in fight against malaria
Their research shows the drug works on mosquitoes, killing the malaria parasite in the insects and preventing it from being transmitted.
Scientists divided over new research method to combat malaria
Research on a radical new way to combat malaria and other devastating diseases could be knocked off track if a UN biodiversity conference imposes a moratorium on the work, a group of scientists have said.
Researchers ID compounds that could help stop malaria
Malaria is transmitted by mosquitoes carrying malaria parasites, but scientists report they have discovered compounds that might keep mosquitoes from spreading the sometimes deadly disease.
Researchers compare standard vs. ultra-sensitive malaria diagnostics
Study findings showed that standard molecular diagnostics detect most potentially transmissible malaria infections and cannot be replaced by rapid diagnostic testing to screen for potential Plasmodium falciparum transmitters, researchers reported in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.
New type of bed net could help fight against malaria
A new type of bed net could prevent millions of cases of malaria, according to new research published in The Lancet.
