My malaria control view

July 27, 2011 - 14:12 -- Jacques Drolet

Immuno-therapy is to therapeutic treatments what vector modification is to vector control. In other words, increasing the self-defense potential of either humans or mosquitoes is addressing the source of the problem for humans and for mosquitoes, both approaches giving a fundamentally hard time to Plasmo. Although I think that techniques like impregnated nets and breeding site reduction will continue to be needed, giving humans (vaccination) and mosquitoes (popcorn wolbachia) the means to fight back Plasmo is leading the true way out of malaria.
