Claims by a novel research have made the effort to combat malaria even more difficult.
A research by Imperial College, London posted in an article published in the journal Science, claimed that two strains of the Anopheles gambiae mosquito namely M and S strains that are responsible for transmitting malaria to humans, have shown an significant genetic variation making it appear as two different species, even though they have a similar structure.
Two researches published in the Oct. 21 issue of Science has outlined that the evolution process is taking place at a much faster pace than expected.
Discerned as a deadly disease, Malaria engulfs over millions of people from across the world. It is claimed that one in every five deaths in Africa is because of Malaria, posted George Christophides, a professor in the division of cell and molecular biology at Imperial College London in England.
We know that the best way to reduce the number of people who contract malaria is to control the mosquitoes that carry the disease”, he added. “Our studies help us to understand the makeup of the mosquitoes that transmit malaria, so that we can find new ways of preventing them from infecting people".
