Malaria is responsible for approximately 445,000 deaths every year. That number may be due to drop, however, as scientists have found that a human-safe blue dye kills parasites in patients' bloodstreams within two days – that's faster than has ever been possible before.​

Colorized scanning electron micrograph of a red blood cell infected with malaria parasites (blue). The infected cell is in the center of the image area. To the left are uninfected cells with a smooth red surface.

Colorized electron micrograph of red blood cell infected with malaria parasites (blue). The small bumps on the infected cell show how the parasite remodels its host cell. Uninfected cells (red) have smoother surfaces.

Artemisinin contains two oxygen atoms hooked together that break down in the presence of iron, by creating very reactive free radicals that kill malaria parasites and cancer cells. Both cancer cells and malaria parasites sequester iron, accumulating as much as 1000 times what normal cells store. Giving artemisinin to people with malaria or cancer results in destruction of these abnormal cells and leaves normal cells unaffected. Making artemisinin a cancer killing bomb!

A new, easy to use and highly sensitive test that detects malaria parasite in patients suffering from malaria has been developed in UK. It detects malaria with least number of parasites in the peripheral blood, where the conventional tests may fail.

One of the major obstacles preventing the large scale application of the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT) against mosquitoes is the requirement for efficient mosquito mass-rearing technology.

A new portable tool will now help doctors detect dengue virus-carrying mosquitoes and help reduce the likelihood of human infections around the world.
