Is ARCEVA a good vaccine for malaria?
ARCEVA isn’t a vaccine for malaria, but it is a brand name of one type of medication used to treat the disease. It belongs to the group of drugs called artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs), which are recommended by the World Health Organisation to treat uncomplicated malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum, the most dangerous form of malaria. ARCEVA specifically contains artemether combined with lumefantrine. It is very important to know that there is no effective vaccine against malaria that is currently available; many scientists and researchers are vigorously hunting for such a vaccine, knowing that this would radically decrease the number of cases of malaria worldwide.
