Nasiru Shua’ibu, a nigerian scientist have decided to save the world from malaria fever as the professor in the Biochemical Parasitology Department of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, has invented the vaccine.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Shua’ibu said that the new vaccine differs from others vaccines in use, though the professor,  is currently working with the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Japan.


He said:

“In a simple term that a layman can understand, the content of this malaria vaccine research is difficult, but let me try if I could simplify it, it is called DNA vaccine.

“It is a new technology for discovery and delivery of vaccine against any infectious disease that was developed in the early to mid-1990s.

“The DNA of the malaria parasite was extracted and the portion of the DNA that is tested to be a good vaccine candidate is subjected to molecular biology methods which are used to produce a lot of the DNA.”

“Then a method of cloning is now used to insert the DNA into a vehicle that will carry the DNA into either animal or human body.pic-7-abu-lecturer-develops-new-malaria-vaccine-in-zaria-kaduna-state

“It is then injected into the body of the animal or human and it eventually enters the cells of the animal in the same way a virus enters and infects cells. “The injected DNA now uses the cells in the body to produce chemicals that will prevent malaria from infecting the body.”
