A report on BBC’s regional news programme for East Anglia yesterday evening (10 November 2011), and unfortunately not available for watching again after 6 o’clock GMT on 11 November (so you can’t check what I’m about to say after that time) drew attention to a potential breakthrough in the treatment and prevention of malaria by using the properties of a protein. The research is being carried out at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge.

The reporter said “Carried in the blood, scientists have been struggling to find a way of stopping that parasite invading our red blood cells.”

Nuff said.
