A malaria vaccine would be a significant breakthrough in the fight against the disease, although alternative strategies are recommended by specialists…
In recent years, several nations have successfully eradicated locally transmitted malaria using a variety of methods, including pesticides and efficient medicine treatments. However, it is widely believed that these methods are insufficient to eradicate malaria from sub-Saharan Africa and certain regions of Asia, where it is the most lethal disease.(A Malaria Vaccine , n.d.)
Many organizations have long backed the creation of potential malaria vaccines in an effort to decrease the spread of the disease and eventually eradicate it. Numerous strategies have so far showed promise in laboratory studies and small-scale human trials.
it has been discovered however that unlike the classic examples of diseases that have been eradicated or widely eliminated through vaccines — such as smallpox, polio, and diphtheria — malaria isn’t caused by a virus or bacteria rather, it’s caused by parasitic protozoans — single-cell organisms that have proved to be adept at evading the human body’s immune response.
with such complexity therefore, is a viable vaccine feasible?
