Millions At Risk As Malaria Drug Loses Potency..
A deadly form of malaria has developed a resistance to the most powerful drugs used to treat the disease, putting the lives of millions of people around the world at risk.

Experts have warned that the disease could be spreading after a strain of Plasmodium falciparum was discovered on the border of Thailand and Burma - 500 miles from western Cambodia, where the first cases of the parasite were reported in 2009.
Tests by a team of British and Thai scientists over a 10-year period have found that the most dangerous species of malaria parasites, spread by mosquitoes, are becoming more resistant to the most effective treatments containing artemisinin, a drug derived from the sweet wormwood shrub.

"Malaria already kills hundreds of thousands of people a year - if our drugs become ineffective, this figure will rise dramatically."
In 2010, malaria killed an estimated 655,000 people worldwide, mostly young children and pregnant women.
