Researchers from Australia’s RMIT University have found that malaria is caused by parasites that inhabit and multiply in human red blood cells. They feed on the enzymes that make up these little bodies.

It is known that drugs for the treatment of oncological diseases act on these enzymes in such a way that they are inactivated, as a result, the environment necessary for the existence of parasites disappears. That is, already existing anti-cancer drugs can be successfully reconfigured to treat primarily malaria, as well as other viruses, including corona. This opens up the prospect of reducing the enormous investment of time and money required to develop new drugs and their clinical trials, Medical Xpress reports.
