How COVID-19 Changes the Immune System
If the COVID-19 pandemic has done one thing, it’s made us all more familiar with some of the important players in the immune system.

New research published in Science highlights potential of a naturally occurring bacterium to help eradicate malaria
Research published in Science today shows that a naturally occurring bacterium discovered by GSK scientists - Delftia tsuruhatensis Tres Cantos 1 (TC1) - could be the basis for new anti-malarial interventions. Studies done in collaboration at the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health show that the bacterium can significantly reduce the malaria parasite load in both the mosquito midgut and salivary glands indicating the potential of TC1 to inhibit transmission of the parasite to humans via the mosquito.
