On Thursday, ScienceNews reports that scientists have found a way to offer some protection against malaria through a hybrid red blood cell protein. The report says that researchers describe the genetic variant being responsible for the fusion of two proteins that protrude from the membranes of red blood cells. It is a hybrid form, where the protein makes it more difficult for malaria parasite to invade the blood cells. Scientists say that this “may help us understand the pathological pathways by which the parasite causes so much disease.”
