Podcast: Meet our Researchers

Cancer and Protein Crystallography

Cells communicate through receptors on their surface. Diseases are triggered when these finely tuned systems don’t work correctly. We can now look at the signalling complexes down to the atomic level. Prof Yvonne Jones explains how this knowledge might help us develop therapies to grow nerve cells through a scar in the spinal cord, stop cancer from growing and spreading, or develop anti-cancer vaccines.

Superbug’s spread to Vietnam threatens malaria control

Superbug’s spread to Vietnam threatens malaria control

Posted 21/09/2017

A highly drug resistant malaria "superbug" from western Cambodia is now present in southern Vietnam, leading to alarming failure rates for dihydroartemisinin (DHA)-piperaquine — Vietnam’s national first-line malaria treatment, leading malaria scientists warn. The spread of this dominant artemisinin drug resistant t P falciparum C580Y mutant malaria parasite lineage across the entire Mekong Sub-region is a serious threat to malaria control and eradication efforts, the scientists say in a letter published today in The Lancet Infectious Diseases.

Unsupervised primaquine for the treatment of Plasmodium vivax malaria relapses in southern Papua: A hospital-based cohort study

Unsupervised primaquine for the treatment of Plasmodium vivax malaria relapses in southern Papua: A hospital-based cohort study

Posted 21/09/2017
Ric Price shows that that primaquine is substantially less effective for preventing relapses of vivax malaria in real-world practice than is predicted by clinical efficacy trials and that this is a likely consequence of incomplete adherence to treatment. Efforts to improve adherence to primaquine and to develop alternative drugs with shorter dosing regimens and greater patient tolerability are needed to achieve the significant public health benefits of P. vivax radical cure.
