WHO Gives Green Flag To First Ever Vaccine For Malaria- MOSQ
The first ever vaccine to prevent malaria is finally approved by WHO.The vaccine is not just a first for malaria — it is the first for any parasitic disease. This will save the lives of approximately 10,000 children in Africa each year. The new vaccine RTS,S or Mosquirix is developed by British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline is given to children aged 6 weeks to 17 months to help protect against malaria and also helps protect against infection of the liver with the hepatitis B virus, but European Medicines Agency warns that the vaccine should not be used only for this purpose. The active substance in Mosquirix is made up of proteins found on the surface of the Plasmodium falciparum parasites that triggers a child’s immune system to thwart Plasmodium Falciparum. WHO said that it should be given to children across Africa in the hope that it will spur stalled efforts to curb the spread of the parasitic disease.
