PLoS Pathogens is an open-access scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science. It publishes research and reviews on the biology of pathogens and host-pathogen interactions.

On December 22, 2007, the PLoS Pathogens study found that sea cucumbers block transmission of the malaria parasite, since they produce the protein, lectin (which retards growth of the parasites).[1]
