Anopheles articles

Infected female malaria mosquitoes more attracted to human odour
Female mosquitoes infected with malaria parasites are significantly more attracted to human odour than uninfected mosquitoes. This was demonstrated in a laboratory setting in which infected female Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto mosquitoes were attracted to human odours three times more than mosquitoes that were not infected with the malaria-causing Plasmodium falciparum parasite.

Poor quality or fake malaria drugs pose threat
Poor quality antimalarial drugs lead to drug resistance and inadequate treatment that pose an urgent threat to vulnerable populations. Emergence of malaria strains that are resistant to artemisinin drugs on the Thailand-Cambodia border make it imperative to improve the drug supply, stressed the researchers.

New malaria vaccine may make all strains of malaria parasite ineffective
A new candidate malaria vaccine with the potential to neutralise all strains of the most deadly species of malaria parasite has been developed by a team led by scientists at the University of Oxford, UK.

Malaria mosquitoes can't spot a spermless mate
A female mosquito cannot tell if the male that she has mated with is fertile or 'sperm less' and unable to fertilize her eggs, according to a recent study from scientists at Imperial College London.

A pre existing malaria infection can prevent a second infection
A team of researchers have found that pre-existing malaria prevents secondary infection by another Plasmodium strain, the parasite responsible for malaria, by restricting iron availability in the liver of the host.

Novel antimalarial drug candidate identified
Novartis announced that scientists at the Novartis Institute for Tropical Diseases (NITD), in collaboration with researchers from the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF), the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and The Scripps Research Institute have discovered a novel compound that shows promise as a next generation treatment for drug resistant malaria.

Novel anti malarial drug candidate found
As part of a multicenter study, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have identified a series of chemical compounds that might serve as starting points for the identification of new classes of anti-malarial drugs.

New treatment targets for malaria released
International collaboration led by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital scientists identifies promising compounds for anti-malarial drug development and launches a database to share findings, advance fight against a leading killer of the world's children

Increase funding for global fight against malaria
A new study linking funding increases in the global fight against malaria to a drop in deaths from the disease also shows that resources from donor governments still fall short of those needed for maximum impact against the world's fourth-biggest killer of children, according to a global health policy analyst at international aid agency World Vision.

Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankhamun died of malaria
Malaria and bone abnormalities appear to have contributed to the death of Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankhamun, revealed by researchers.

125.2 million pregnant women at risk of malaria
Research published this week in PLoS Medicine concludes that at least 125.2 million women at risk of malaria become pregnant each year.

Measuring and modeling blood flow in malaria
When people have malaria, they are infected with Plasmodium parasites, which enter the body from the saliva of a mosquito, infect cells in the liver, and then spread to red blood cells.

Coffee ring stain diagnostic test for malaria - Gates Foundation
The US' Gates Foundation funds development of coffee ring stain diagnostic test for malaria. Vanderbilt University received a $100,000 Grand Challenges Explorations grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

New lead on malaria treatment
Approximately 350 million to 500 million cases of malaria are diagnosed each year mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. While medications to prevent and treat malaria do exist, the demand for new treatments is on the rise, in part, because malaria parasites have developed a resistance to existing medications.

New drug aims to transform malaria treatment
Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited (Ranbaxy) announced the commencement of Phase-III clinical trials for its new Anti-malaria combination drug, Arterolane maleate + Piperaquine phosphate in India, Bangladesh and Thailand.

$100000 Grant for innovative global health research
Vanderbilt University announced that it has received a $100,000 Grand Challenges Explorations grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Malaria diagnostic tests differ in performance
The largest-ever independent, laboratory-based evaluation of rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for malaria has shown that some tests on the market perform exceptionally well in tropical temperatures and can detect even low parasite densities in blood samples, while other tests can detect parasites only at high densities.

Make this world malaria free
Progress has been made in combating malaria, particularly in Africa where the disease is most prevalent, but more must be done to address the global scourge, UNICEF said, as it released a new joint report on the eve of World Malaria Day.

Zambian success in fight against malaria
Malaria deaths reported from health facilities in Zambia have declined by 66%. This result along with other supporting data indicates that Zambia has reached the 2010 Roll Back Malaria target of a more than 50% reduction in malaria mortality compared to 2000.

Monash research breakthrough to treat malaria
Australian researchers have made a major breakthrough in the international fight against malaria, which claims the life of a child across the world every 30 seconds.
