On a programmatic scale, a 10-fold increase in malaria cases was observed in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, subsequent to the re-emergence of pyrethroid-resistant Anopheles funestus
mosquitoes and emergence of malaria parasite drug resistance to sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine (8).
Changes in Anopheles funestus
biting behavior following universal coverage of long-lasting insecticidal nets in Benin.
Analysis of the complete mitochondrial DNA from Anopheles funestus
an improved dipteran mitochondrial genome annotation and a temporal dimension of mosquito evolution.
The primary malaria vectors in Africa, Anopheles gambiae sensu lato and Anopheles funestus
, breed primarily in pools of water formed from rainfall.
Emphasis is placed on the need for routine vector surveillance, highlighting the vigilance of the malaria programme in the year 2000 in detecting the re-appearance of Anopheles funestus
and its resistance to pyrethroid insecticides after the use of DDT had been stopped.
Hargreaves K, Koekemoer LL, Brooke BD, Hunt RH, Mthembu J, Coetzee M: Anopheles funestus
resistant to pyrethroid insecticides in South Africa.
Recent reduction in the water level of Lake Victoria has created more habitats for Anopheles funestus
Restriction fragment length polymorphism method for the identification of major African and Asian malaria vectors within the Anopheles funestus
Sin embargo, estos insecticidas pueden producir alteraciones geneticas, como en el caso de Anopheles funestus
, el principal mosquito vector de la malaria en el hombre, en quien se ha asociado duplicacion de genes con la resistencia a insecticidas piretroides, lo que representa un obstaculo para su control (Wondji et al.
led by Charles Wondji and Hilary Ranson of the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, has identified the genetic basis of resistance to common pyrethroid insecticides in the mosquito Anopheles funestus
, one of the major malarial vectors in Africa.
