Submission + - New Vaccine May Protect People from Multiple Malaria Strains (jci.org)

Jagungal writes: It is being reported that Researchers at Queensland’s Griffith University have had promising results with a new vaccine against Malaria. The malaria parasite is transmitted by mosquitoes and kills over 600,000 people each year. The vaccine which has been trialed in mice is the first to trigger an immune response to the whole malaria parasite. Past research on the development of vaccines have mainly focused on targeting specific parasite antigens. However, researchers said that many of these vaccines have failed because the antigen targets are highly variable.
