Scientists at the University of Oxford have created a malaria vaccine with world-changing potential.
After trials revealed up to 80% protection against the fatal disease, the team anticipates the rollout of vaccines by next year.
According to the researchers, their vaccine is affordable, and they already have a deal to manufacture more than 100 million doses yearly.
The charity Malaria No More said recent progress meant children dying from malaria could end “in our lifetimes.”
It took more than a century to develop effective vaccines due to the malaria parasite’s extraordinary complexity and elusiveness.
It is a constantly moving target, shifting forms inside the body, which make it hard to find a cure. BKM/ Expat Media
