Handy mozzie-checking platform to help keep malaria at bay

To spray or not to spray - and potentially, what with: EU-funded researchers are developing a sophisticated system to facilitate analyses of mosquitoes and their mechanisms of resistance to insecticides, support data sharing and refine decision-making processes. Scientists in Cameroon are helping to advance this bid to boost malaria vector control.

Artemisinin (ARS) and its derivatives (ARSs) are recommended as the first-line antimalarial drugs for the treatment of malaria. Besides antimalarial function, its potent anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory properties, as well as the ability to regulate oxidative stress have brought them to a prominent position. As researchers around the world are continually exploring the unknown biological activities of ARS derivatives, experimental studies have shown much progress in renal therapy. This review aims to give a brief overview of the current research on ARSs applications for kidney treatment with the evaluation of therape...
