Australian scientists have discovered a "key molecule", which can kill microbes that infect the human liver, a breakthrough experts believe could bring a malaria vaccine one step closer. Researchers at the Australian National University (ANU) announced the breakthrough after they tracked cells and discovered a molecule which kills microbes that infect the liver - such as malaria, Xinhua news agency reported.

Malaria kills around half a million people every year in warm climates such as in Africa and Asia, but lead researcher Hayley McNamara from the ANU said the findings helped answer questions about the mystery of "T-cells" - immune cells which hunt down infections in the body.
