This link will take you to a very interesting update on the recent malaria vaccine trials. I really like the way he describes all the conditions they are trying to test simultaneously which include:

  • age of the kids they are giving vaccine to
  • is the vaccine being given alone or in combination with other vaccines
  • does it provide protection in areas with different malaria¬†incidence levels
  • how does the protection persist over time
