Scientists claim to have discovered the "Achilles heel" of the Malaria parasite.
Over the years the single biggest obstacle to overcome in the development of an effective vaccine for Malaria has been its adaptability. Now however scientists believe they've identified the disease's weakness, a discovery that could lead to a vaccine within the next two to three years.
