Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Discovery of a potential therapeutic target to combat trypanosomes

Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers have analyzed the structure of trypanosomes parasites in details and revealed one of their potential weak points, which has remained undetected until now. This discovery opens the path to the development of new safer therapies that are less toxic and more specific against trypanosomes, the parasites causing the Chagas disease and the African sleeping sickness.
