The discovery of a compound in the deep sea that can kill malaria mosquitoes could help the fight the disease, according to a new study.
The discovery of the compound in a large saltwater lake in the Philippine Sea could have a big impact on malaria in the region, according the study.
Scientists found the compound at the depths of the lake.
The compound was found to be an alpha-lactam glycoprotein, a peptide that acts as an anti-malaria drug, the scientists said.
It has the potential to be used as a new treatment to fight the malaria-carrying mosquito.
This compound, which is found in saltwater, is the first compound to show this ability, they said.
Malaria is the world’s second-leading cause of death after heart disease, the authors of the study said.
In addition to killing mosquitoes, the compound may also help treat other types of malaria, including those caused by a bacterial parasite called Co-infection of the Bacterial Lymphoma, which infects and kills most people.
The study was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
