Spanish scientists use a new molecule to cure malaria in mice


Cadena Ser radio, like other national and international media, has reported on the results obtained by Lluís Ribas’s team on new borrelidin-based compounds to combat the malaria-causing parasite Plasmodium. This study, published in the PNAS journal, was performed in mice, and showed that the compounds were 100% effective. In addition, the mice developed immune memory against future infections, a feature not achieved previously in an anti-malarial drug.
