Cohen's vaccine goes to work at the point when the parasite enters the human bloodstream after a mosquito bite. By stimulating an immune response, it can prevent the parasite from maturing and multiplying in the liver. Without that immune response, the parasite re-enters the bloodstream and infects red blood cells, leading to fever, body aches and, in some cases, death. Although Cohen's scientific work has been largely in Belgium, where he runs a GSK laboratory, the final-stage trials of RTS,S were conducted in Africa, where malaria hits hardest. With GSK working in partnership with the non-profit PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative (MVI), the trials became Africa's largest-ever medical experiment as the vaccine was tested in around 16,000 children across seven countries.


I wonder how long it'll be before people have to pay for the vaccine.

This is a sad day.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

That's awesome. The pills you have to take can lead to pretty serious freaking side-effects. The doctor suggested I take some lariam pills before going now. With those pills 25% suffer distress, nightmares, headaches, dizziness, hallucinations. And that's just the light side-effects, a smaller percentage of people suffer from depression, sucidial thoughts, severe hallucinations and nausea.

I pretty much did this face and left

Inb4 the white man's evil attempt to eliminate the sickle cell heterozygote to weaken Africa's overall genotype resulting in the release of a shadow government's super sickle cell bomb in order to not only lay claim to the last few resources they weren't able to already claim, but also as a psychological attack against the ever growing China and to stimulate country music album sales.

You get seriously awesome daydreams with malaria tablets though. I was on a minibus in thailand and had such a vivid dream of another minibus pulling alongside and a bunch of kids attacking the bus and trying to board and stuff. Then I woke up and jumped out my seat.

Was dissapointed when I had to stop taking them.
