Malaria is one of the most common killing parasites across the world. There have been international efforts by some of the wealthiest countries and figures that have taken on the task of eliminating this disease, including people such as Bill Gates. Statistics show that a child dies in Africa every minute due to malaria. This statistic does not even include the other parts of the world and the death count that is mounted each year from this deadly parasite. That being said, there is a new anti-malaria compound that has been developed with a promising effect in eliminating the risk of Malaria and its deadly results. This new compound is called (+)-SJ733.
This new compound tells the immune system to quickly destroy all the red blood cells that have been infected by malaria. This same compound also tells the immune system to leave the healthy red blood cells unharmed. Because of the safety associated with this new compound it has already been approved for limited trials in healthy individuals.
(+)-SJ733 uses a mechanism to kill the parasite by using the immune system which has shown to eliminate up to 80% of the parasite in mice models within 24 hours. The compound was able to eliminate malaria to a level that was undetectable within 48 hours.
The compound actually eliminates the parasite by disrupting its sodium balance. As a result, the excess sodium buildup within the cell causes the parasite to die. The doctors are so confident in this new compound they are currently in the process of developing a therapy that is both cheap but should be able to cure malaria in a single dose.
Medical doctors with their ACLS certification, PALS certification, and BLS certification are no strangers to the deaths associated with malaria if they’ve worked in a malaria ridden country. Unfortunately malaria most often kills children so the majority of the doctors who treat these children would need PALS certification online to successfully resuscitate a dead child or infant in their last moments of life.
Even the most deadly forms of malaria have been shown to be eliminated by the compound which shows great promise for the fight against this deadly disease. As a result we should be able to save countless lives in the future and change the face of childhood deaths in several poverty stricken countries across the world.
Other research of this same compound also shows that it will slow and even suppress the evolution of drug-resistant strains of malaria. Moving the compound into life clinics with healthy adults is already about to begin. Thanks to a worldwide effort we can now see the progress in the fight against malaria
