    Abstract: Two molecules from the same source, Κ casein, are suggested as treatments to prevent infection by Plasmodium vivax, malaria virus, through the prevention of Duffy Binding Protein II (DBPII) monomers 1 and 2 from binding. By preventing DBPII monomer 1 and 2 binding there would be half the Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines (DARC) binding to the D... Show More
