Ethiopian scientists and team record a step forward in the fight against malaria
Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite.
Symptoms include fever, chills, and flu-like infection.
If left untreated, people can also
develop excessive complications and die. In 2020,
the World Health Corporation said 241 million malaria cases
and 627,000 malaria deaths were expected worldwide,
Approximately 2,000 cases of malaria are identified within the United States every
12 months from travelers from sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
This team of scientists suggested a powerful malaria vaccine that can infect the human
liver without the need for mosquitoes through in vitro production for the first time.
In a press release, Dr. Pedro Alonso, professor at the
Barcelona Fitness Sectoral University and director of the WHO Malaria Program,
said that the impressive results of this study have a great
impact in increasing our experience on the importance of vaccine development.
Similarly, the President of the Swiss Academy of Sciences, Professor
Marcel Tanner, highlighted the importance of the research results,
