Malaria infection depends on number of parasites, not number
For the first time, researchers have shown that the number of parasites each mosquito carries influences the chance of successful malaria infection.

The findings, from scientists at Imperial College London, may also explain why the only registered malaria vaccine, RTS,S, has had only partial efficacy in recent trials.
