Mexican Finds Molecule That Could Help Combat Malaria

An article from Latin American Herald Tribune :

" A doctoral student has discovered a molecule that could be the key to reducing the development of malaria parasites inside the host mosquito, Mexico’s Research and Advanced Studies Center, or Cinvestav, said Wednesday.

The work of Monica Gonzalez Lazaro revealed that by “shutting off” one of the mosquito’s defense molecules the proliferation of malaria parasites inside the insect decreased and, with it, the efficiency of disease transmission, Cinvestav said in a statement."
