Fungus modified with spider venom offers new hope against malaria - KOAM

A fungus genetically altered to produce spider venom quickly kills virtually all malaria-spreading mosquitoes, a study has found. It was tested in a mock-up village setting in Burkina Faso, west Africa.A fungus genetically altered to produce spider venom quickly kills virtually all malaria-spreading mosquitoes, a study has found.

“Extraordinary results in this @sciencemagazine study. Trials of a GM fungus in Burkina Faso showed a collapse in the number of malaria-carrying mosquitos. There are around 219 million annual cases of malaria, killing 400,000 people every year. https://t.co/63VEXa3UbL”

“GM fungus rapidly kills 99% of malaria mosquitoes, in trials which took place in Burkina Faso. Wow! Remember economists estimate that malaria causes an "economic growth penalty" of up to $12 billion every year in Africa. https://t.co/dQgfTVLznW”
