Drugs made from dried leaves of Artemisia annua plant successfully cure drug-resistant malaria.
New drug from a malaria protein that was capable of stopping the growth of chemotherapy-resistant bladder cancer.
For so long, the world’s seas have gotten the brunt of the heat – literally. Climate change has heated the ocean to dangerously high temperatures and a recent analysis compiled by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) listed the disastrous consequences to come, from super storms to change in marine life behavior.
Don't fear what is big and ferocious-looking, because sometimes, the smallest kills more.
A new study suggests that natural plant-sugars could affect the relationship between Anopheles mosquito and Plasmodium parasite, resulting to possible decrease or increase of malaria transmission.
Sleeping next to a live chicken is a more natural way of repelling malaria-causing mosquitoes, study finds.
Thousands of people around the world will die of heat stroke, coastal flooding, diarrhoel disease, malaria and dengue and undernutrition.
Home testing of malaria and other diseases, including cancer, may become cheap and easy following the devlopment of new test using paper strips. The cost of medical testing can be as low as 50 cents per strip.
Indian Mynas are also carrying exotic strands of avian malaria which is threatening native wildlife.
CRISPR, a gene-editing system, could have serious consequences if rapidly spreading genes end up in the wrong species.
Thankfully, we're not talking about people here. It seems that a nasty weed native to America has reared its ugly head in Africa, and it's not only poisoning livestock but somehow helping starving mosquitoes survive long enough to spread malaria.
The chance of being re-infected with malaria, or of being exposed to resistant strains, may increase as mosquitoes find more hosts on which to feed.
Fake medication - that is, those that fail to meet quality standards - is a global problem, threatening not just public health but important advancements in medicine as well.
Researchers have made what they are calling a "groundbreaking" discovery concerning cerebral malaria - one of the most deadly forms of the mosquito-borne disease - in children. Now they hope that these revelations can pave the way for new treatment options that can save many young lives.
Dengue fever is not to be taken lightly, but compared to malaria, it is a far less deadly mosquito-transmitted disease. Unfortunately, the illnesses tend to share very similar starting symptoms, causing frequent misdiagnoses in areas endemic for both diseases. Now new research shows that these mistakes not only impact individual patients, but could be helping malaria become an even greater danger.
