Transmission blocking vaccines fail, but Artemisia is very efficient

August 4, 2018 - 13:05 -- Pierre Lutgen

Vaccines blocking the invasion of malaria sporozoites failed so far, after 30 years of efforts, millions spent, and disastrous human clinical trials. The efforts and the millions are now focused on vaccines blocking transmission by gametocytes. The results are not yet encouraging but the updated Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap foresees that there will be a TBV vaccine available in 2030. The update was necessary as the program launched by WHO in 2000 ( TDR/RBM/MAL/VAC/2000.1) has not yet progressed very far.

Plasmodium vivax comment links

July 20, 2018 - 22:50 -- Miles Markus

The two links below did not come up in the original "Comment" on a paper but should do so in this "Blog" version, which appears in full below. It was speculated in detail for the first time in two recent publications (particularly the second one) that in addition to a hypnozoite origin of relapse-like vivax recurrences, parasites in bone marrow might be a source. (Link to first paper). (Link to second paper).
