Malaria vaccine found effective in early human trial
When administered together with antimalarial medication, an experimental malaria vaccine has been found to protect people in early clinical trial. The study involved 67 healthy adult test persons, none of whom previously had malaria.

The best immune response was shown in a group of nine test persons who received the highest dose of the vaccine three times at four-week intervals. At the end of the trial, all nine of these individuals had 100 per cent protection from the disease, according to the study published in the journal Nature.

The researchers said their next step is to further test the vaccine's effectiveness over several years in a clinical study in Gabon.
