cure for malaria? …

A VACCINE WOULD BE BETTER, BUT THIS IS GOOD: University of Cape Town Researchers Believe They Have Found a Single Dose Cure for Malaria. “Unlike conventional multidrug malaria treatments that the malaria parasite has become resistant to, Professor Kelly Chibale and his colleagues now believe that they have discovered a drug that over 18 months of trials ‘killed these resistant parasites instantly.’ Animal tests also showed that it was not only safe and effective, but there were no adverse reported side effects. Clinical tests are scheduled for the end of 2013.”

Let’s hope it pans out.
