Drug Targets To Fight Disease Resistant Malaria

Malaria is a parasitic disease that is transmitted from an infected female Anopheles mosquito to humans. Two newly identified enzymes which are essential for the survival of the malarial parasite can help inhibit the survival of the parasite. By identifying the two proteases and a molecule that inhibit the survival of the parasite, a research team at the Universities of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, and Bern (UNIBE) have brought a new hope in the fight against malaria.
