“The bad news is there is significantly more genetic variation in P. vivax than we’d thought, which could make it quite adept at evading whatever arsenal of drugs and vaccines we throw at it,” Jane Carlton, Ph.D., of New York University’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, the senior author on both studies, said in a statement.“However, now that we have a better understanding of the challenges we face, we can move forward with a deeper analysis of its genomic variation in pursuing more effective remedies,” added Dr. Carlton, who is the center’s faculty director of genomic sequencing.
