Group of Dutch scientists from the University of Radbod in Nijmegen (Radboud University Nijmegen) succeeded in developing a completely new method of combating this dangerous disease such as malaria.To this end, experts from the Netherlands decided to use a mosquito infected with the deadly disease pathogens.
In the study, the report of which was published in the publication «The New England Journal of Medicine», the authors started with the fact that for three months gave study participants a drug chloroquine, which kills malaria parasites at the time of greatest risk - Outputinto the bloodstream.At the same subjects, divided into two groups, once a month were subjected to mosquito bites about ten, and members of the core
Dutch researchers point out that the bites of infected mosquitoes, of course, lead to human infection with malaria, but the disease is eliminated taking chloroquine.As the results of the survey subjects, the members of the core group developed an immunity similar to how it is produced in the case of vaccination.Note that the subjects stopped taking the drug for a period of three months from the start of the experiment.
reports on the pages an Internet resource medportal.ru, the second stage of the experiment, which took place two months later, all subjects again subjected to the bite of infected mosquitoes.Survey participants revealed that none of the members of the core group of malaria parasites in the blood were not detected, while all members of the control group, as would be expected, turned out to be infected with malaria.
In this regard, one of the authors of this study, Dr. Robert Zauervayn (Robert Sauerwein), stated that the method can not be called the vaccination because he and his colleagues did not use drugs, designed to create immunity to malaria, and the common mosquito,infected with the disease pathogens.Since this is not entirely consistent with each member of the research group, Campbell, Carlos (Carlos Campbell), according to which, a fully viable malaria just the same and should be considered as the most suitable for immunization.This scientist added that the development of drugs based on them will be helpful in dealing with the disease each year claims the lives of about one million inhabitants of our planet.
