Also available in

Une algue rouge vivant dans la mer qui baigne les îles Fidji pourrait contribuer à lutter contre le paludisme. Une équipe de chercheurs américains a découvert que l’algue Callophycus serratus contient des composés chimiques capables de détruire le parasite responsable du paludisme, le Plasmodium falciparum. Cette algue produit diverses substances antimicrobiennes qui semblent agir essentiellement contre les champignons microscopiques.
