Drug-resistant malarial parasites form flower-like structures to shield themselves from attack by antimalarial drugs and the immune system.
A novel molecular mechanism by which a malarial parasite enters host cells may broaden possibilities in malaria vaccine development.
Flower-like ‘rosettes’ may help malaria parasites evade the body’s immune defences.
A new method of identifying drug targets in the malaria parasite P. falciparum could find broad applications in other fields of biology.
Scientists are one step closer to developing effective treatments against Plasmodium vivax parasites, thanks to the ability to culture one of its closest cousins.
A three-dimensional liver organoid model for studying dormant malaria parasites may pave the way for better antimalarial drugs.
Malaria infections may be masking the extent of the emerging chikungunya epidemic
A new understanding of the way chikungunya virus protects mice against malaria could lead to improved patient care
Studying the body’s immune response to malaria infection could help scientists find life-saving vaccines
Understanding the diversity of immature red blood cells in greater detail could help protect against Asia’s most common form of malaria
