Crying Zika: Virus Material Found in Tears

When an animal is infected with Zika, genetic material from the virus can find its way into the tears, according to a new study in mice.

The insect's red blood cell equivalent fights off the disease-causing parasites. Finding out how could help develop new malaria drugs, writes Anthea Batsakis.

What a mosquito’s immune system can tell us about fighting malaria

Immune system messengers carried in microscopic sacs help mosquitoes fend off malaria, new research suggests.

Dengue virus is carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito, the same type that can spread Zika virus. A bite from a mosquito harboring the virus can result in headaches, rashes and severe joint pains. In serious cases, it can cause internal bleeding and death.

Genetically engineered bugs to fight malaria and Zika? Not so fast, experts say

Lab-designed bugs could spread their genes in the fights against malaria and Zika, but experts say there are still too many unknowns.

Zika virus ‘spillback’ into primates raises risk of future human outbreaks

Spillback of Zika virus into monkeys may complicate eradication efforts.

Prevention of Malaria - What is Malaria disease ?

Malaria vaccine target's invasion partner uncovered

A team at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute has discovered how a promising malarial vaccine target - the protein RH5 - helps parasites to invade human red blood cells. Published today in Nature Communications, the study reveals that a previously mysterious protein on the surface of the parasite called P113 anchors the RH5 protein, and provides a molecular bridge between the parasite and a red blood cell.
