Scottish scientists claim major breakthrough in a vaccine for malaria. Vaccines must include certain proteins from malaria parasites in order to create antibodies and strengthen the immune system. For malaria parasite proteins, this has proven to be difficult. Edinburgh University scientists now claim to have found an easy and cheap method for producing malaria parasite proteins.
