Phenotypic effects of concomitant insensitive acetylcholinesterase (ace-1 R ) and knockdown resistance (kdr R ) in Anopheles gambiae: a hindrance for insecticide resistance management for malaria vector control

In order to maintain the efficacy of vector control strategies, the characterization of concomitant kdr and ace-1 resistance, and their pleiotropic effects on malaria vector phenotype on insecticide efficacy are important.

Experimental hut evaluation of linalool spatial repellent agar gel against Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto mosquitoes in a semi-field system in Bagamoyo, Tanzania

December 19, 2014 - 16:16 -- Open Access
Author(s): 
Mgeni Tambwe, Edgar Mbeyela, Brian Massinda, Sarah Moore, Marta Maia
Reference: 
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:550 (5 December 2014)

Our results indicate that linalool agar gel emanators are not adequate as a spatial repellent against Anopheles gambiae s.s.. However adding linalool to known repellent formulations could be advantageous, not only because of its pleasant scent but also because of the delayed mortality effect it has on mosquitoes.

Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) for infection with Plasmodium spp. offer two main potential advantages related to malaria treatment: 1) ensuring that individuals with malaria are promptly treated with an effective artemisinin-based combination therapy, and 2) ensuring that individuals without malaria do not receive an anti-malarial they do not need (and instead receive a more appropriate treatment).

Heterogeneous genetic diversity pattern in Plasmodium vivax genes encoding merozoite surface proteins (MSP) -7E, -7F and -7L

December 18, 2014 - 09:16 -- Open Access
Author(s): 
Garzón-Ospina D, Forero-Rodríguez J, Patarroyo MA
Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2014, 13 :495 (13 December 2014)

The results confirmed that the P. vivax msp-7 family has a heterogeneous genetic diversity pattern; some members are highly conserved whilst others are highly diverse.
