STOCKHOLM, October 5. /TASS/. Three scientists from Ireland, Japan and China, William C. Campbell, Satoshi Omura and Youyou Tu, were announced winners of the 2015 Nobel Prize in medicine on Monday for discovering revolutionary treatment of some of the most devastating parasitic diseases.
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2015 was awarded with one half jointly to William C. Campbell and Satoshi Omura for their discoveries concerning a novel therapy against infections caused by roundworm parasites and the other half to Youyou Tu for her discoveries concerning a novel therapy against Malaria," the Nobel Committee said.
"These two discoveries have provided humankind with powerful new means to combat these debilitating diseases that affect hundreds of millions of people annually. The consequences in terms of improved human health and reduced suffering are immeasurable," the committee said.
The announcement of the medicine prize opened the 114th Nobel week. The winners of the physics, chemistry and peace prizes will be announced later this week.
