Dogs could be trained to sniff out malaria in people after trials showed the animals were able to smell the deadly disease on socks worn by infected children. Researchers from Durham University said their findings could potentially lead to the first rapid and non-invasive test for malaria. Although the research is in its early stages, scientists hope trained sniffer dogs could help to stop malaria spreading between countries and lead to infected people being identified earlier.
