ST. LOUIS, MO U.S. researchers have developed a new fast-acting drug against malaria that appears to avoid the problem with current medicines, which often lose their effectiveness against increasingly drug-resistant strains of malaria parasites, called Plasmodium.
Scientists say the new malaria medicine may have a decisive edge against this persistent tropical-world killer.
Michael Riscoe of Oregon Health and Science University, in the U.S. Northwest, says the new drug, known as ELQ-300, targets the mitochondria -- energy-producing structures in the parasite's cells -- and the DNA building blocks they produce.

(Image courtesy of Michael Riscoe) "So the Plasmodium mitochondrion serves as a factory to make these DNA building blocks, but this is completely blocked by ELQ-300," explains Riscoe. "Studies show that the drug acts very quickly to shut down this process. In fact, (in) only about 10 minutes.rdquo;
Perhaps the biggest obstacle in the fight against malaria, Riscoe adds, is the Plasmodium parasite's ability to mutate and develop resistance to each new drug used against the disease. ...
