Dye kills malaria parasites at speed not seen before -- ScienceDaily

Research shows that the dye methylene blue is a safe antimalarial that
kills malaria parasites at an unprecedented rate. Within two days,
patients are cured of the disease and no longer transmit the parasite if
they are bitten again by a mosquito. This discovery was made by Radboud
university medical center scientists and international colleagues
during a research project conducted in Mali. The results are
published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases .
