Scientists Provide Template for Developing New Anti-malarial Drug | Health | English

Dr. Neeraj Mistry is managing director of the Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases. He says the research is an important step toward powerful and safe new drugs to fight the worldwide malaria plague:

“It opens the door to developing new drugs that specifically affect the parasite – will not affect the host – that will not have severe side effects – will only affect the parasite,” Mistry noted.  “Which means that upon identification of that pathway, we might be able to come up with a unique drug that actually affects that malaria parasite.”
