Yeah, rightly heard. They have unexpectedly discovered that a malaria protein could prove to be an effective weapon against the cancer.

How they discovered it?

The researchers were conducting research to find a way of protecting pregnant women from malaria which can cause huge problems because it attacks the placenta. During this research, they found that armed malaria proteins can attack cancer.  This discovery put them a step forward to get cure to cancer.

So what’s the way forward?

This research has already been tested on mice with cancer. Scientists hope that they can begin testing on humans in coming years. The biggest questions are whether it’ll work in the human body, and if the human body can tolerate these doses without developing side effects. But scientists are optimistic that it will work on human too.
