|CANBERRA， May 11 (Xinhua) -- Australian scientists will soon begin trialing a ground-breaking malaria "breath test"， which would allow doctors to quickly determine whether or not a patient is infected with the disease.
The CSIRO announced on Wednesday that a one million U.S dollar grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will fast-track the testing， which will take place in a variety of climates and conditions around the world.
Over the next 18 months， a research team from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) will undertake the field tests in a number of malaria-affected regions， including Malawi and Sudan in Africa， as well as in Bangladesh and the Malaysian province of Sabah.
Wednesday's news follows the discovery last year that distinctive chemicals can be detected in the breath of malaria-infected patients， making it quicker and easier to diagnose the disease.
On Wednesday， research group leader Dr Stephen Trowell said the funding generously given to the CSIRO by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation could eventually result in an 'over the counter' malaria test， which would allow for cheaper diagnoses and， in turn， cheaper treatments.
"Our initial research really opened our eyes to the potential for a new test， because the chemicals that we found in the breath of patients could be detected at the very early stages of infection，" Trowell said in a statement on Wednesday.
"Thanks to this new funding from the Gates Foundation， we can now test the accuracy and effectiveness of the breath markers under real world conditions.
"If this phase of the research pans out， we intend to move onto developing a simple， painless and cheap breath test to help identify people who have malaria but don't know it.
"This would enable better targeting of treatments to stop transmission of the disease."
Under the trial， those suspected to be infected with malaria will be able to provide a breath sample to researchers， who will then transport the sample tubes to either Canberra or St Louis， USA for chemical and statistical analysis.
Some "control" patients - or those who are not suspected to have the malaria disease - will also be asked to provide a sample for comparison.
The CSIRO said the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation was committed to developing tests for malaria， as they could play a "significant role" in future disease eradication campaigns.

Apart from watching games and drinking beer with friends at midnight Nike Air VaporMax UK , Shen Yiren, a 27-year-old salesman in Shenzhen, found another way to participate in the soccer carnival: buying sports lottery tickets.
He just spent about 3 Nike Air Presto UK ,000 yuan ($480) on the final game between Germany and Argentina through his mobile lottery app as he was boarding the flight to Beijing.
"I didn't expect such convenience in 2010 when I had to pay dollars to buy lottery tickets through Paypal," Shen said. "Now I only need to click a few buttons."
With the final match of the World Cup approaching, sports lottery sales are expected to explode. According to the China Sports Lottery Administration Center Nike Air Max TN Plus UK , sales of sports lottery tickets before the semifinal on Wednesday exceeded 9.5 billion yuan. Analysts expect the number to surpass 12 billion yuan by the end of the World Cup, sixfold the 2.2 billion yuan Chinese fans bet during the 2010 tournament.
Yu Wensheng, vice-president of 500 Nike Air Max Flair UK , a US-listed company specializing in sports lotteries, said daily sales increased three to five times during the World Cup, and the daily number of buyers has jumped tenfold. Boosted by the market Nike Air Max 97 Undefeated UK , the price of its stock went up by 8 percent in the first week of the tournament.
"Sales numbers are higher than we estimated at the end of last year," Yu said.
Other players such as e-commerce giant Alibaba and Internet company Tencent helped make it easier for people to game. Users of Tencent's mobile chatting app WeChat can buy tickets while chatting with their friends about the games. For only 2 yuan, you can sit at an online betting table.
"The lottery boom is beyond many insiders' expectations Nike Air Max 97 Mens UK ," said Li Jian, co-president of Caitong, a consulting firm focused on the lottery industry in Beijing. "Due to the fast development of the mobile internet Nike Air Max 97 Womens UK , e-commerce and social media, many people began to enjoy the fun of lotteries during the soccer games."
Lottery sales totaled 309 billion yuan in China last year.
"The Internet has changed everything," said Cheng Yang Nike Air Max 97 UK , a lottery industry specialist in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
"Before 2010, we had limited lottery products and selling networks. Now nearly all big Internet players have joined the game, which really changed the rules."
MADRID Nike Air Max 2018 UK , Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Although FC Barcelona and Real Madrid both won their respective games in the second round of matches of the BBVA Primera Liga, a little piece of history was made this weekend in Spain.
Barcelona had to huff and puff their way to a 1-0 win at home to Malaga which came as the result of a 72nd minute goal from Thomas Vermaelen, while Real Madrid cruised to an easy win against Betis thanks to two goals each from Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez and a header from Karim Benzema.
What was surprising is that neither Leo Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo were on the scoresheet for their respective sides and it is the first time ever that neither of the duo has scored in two consecutive matches when they have both started for their respective clubs.
While Messi could point to a string of saves from Malaga keeper Carlos Kameni which denied him 5 times in the second half of his side's win Air Presto High Ultra Flyknit UK , Ronaldo cut a frustrated figure as others around him shone and even appeared to shrug off a c.
