Feeding channel created by malaria parasite - a new target for malaria treatments

...cted with the parasite. After the malaria parasite infects a human red blood cell, it must get many nutrients-proteins, sugars and precursors for DNA-to survive and grow. While it obtains some of these by digesting the red blood cell's hemoglobin, it must get the rest from outside the cell. The parasite crea...

Specialists say, “When the virus infects cells, it takes the altered genes with it, and those genes attack cancer cells while leaving normal cells intact.” Researchers say, in preclinical tests, the virus effectively attacked cancerous tumors and did not harm normal tissue. However researc...

Circumcision Found To Prevent HIV Spread

HIV is a virus that infects and destroys T-cells in the immune system. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are between 800,000 and 900,000 people living with HIV.// Previous research has shown circumcised men are less likely to be infected with H...
