Entity of the month
Compounds of interest in the fight against malaria have featured many times in ChEBI's Entity of the Month [1-6], and in recent years the number of cases of the disease has fallen markedly, due in no small part to the widespread adoption of insecticide-treated bednets (ITNs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS). Nevertheless, the disease continues to kill around a thousand people every day, of whom roughly 700 are children under the age of 5. More than 90% of the deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa, where Plasmodium falciparum, the most dangerous species of the malaria parasite, predominates.
