Vaccine candidate using genetically engineered malaria parasite developed

Science Daily - Malaria - May 29, 2014 - 13:22
A next generation genetically attenuated parasite (GAP) that might constitute the path to a highly protective malaria vaccine has been developed by scientists. Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasites that are transmitted to humans by a mosquito bite, leading to 219 million documented cases and 627,000 deaths worldwide in 2012. While control measures, such as bed nets, are increasingly implemented, there remains no effective vaccine capable of eradicating malaria.
