Malarial Vaccine

A vaccine made from weakened Malarial Parasite found to protect participants in a small clinical trial from Malarial infection.

A group of Scientists from Maryland, USA, made the vaccine by irradiating parasite-infected mosquitoes, harvesting weakened parasites from the mosquitoes’ salivary glands and cryo-preserving them.


However, the only drawback of the vaccine is that it is delivered intravenously, while earlier studies proved that any vaccine delivered into the skin or into the tissue beneath the skin was considerably more beneficial.
