Resistance to pyrethroids, the sole insecticide class recommended for treating bed nets, threatens the control of major malaria vectors, including Anopheles funestus.

Evidence of a multiple insecticide resistance in the malaria vector Anopheles funestus in South West Nigeria

Ndo C, Kopya E, Menze-Djantio B, Toto J, Awono-Ambene P, Lycett G, Wondji C
Parasites & Vectors 2016, 9:341 (14 June 2016)

The present study reports one of the first experimental infections of progeny from wild-caught An. funestus with the P. falciparum parasite providing a realistic avenue for the characterisation of immune responses associated with this infection.

Insecticide resistance status of the Anopheles funestus population in Central African Republic: a challenge in the war

April 28, 2016 - 16:48 -- Open Access
Olé Sangba M, Deketramete T, Wango S, Kazanji M, Akogbeto M, Ndiath M
Parasites & Vectors 2016, 9 :230 (25 April 2016)

This study suggests that detoxifying enzymes are involved in insecticide resistance of An. funestus. However, despite disruptive violence, further research is urgently needed to assess the insecticide susceptibility status of An. funestus population in all CAR regions; insecticide resistance could rapidly compromise the success of malaria control programs.

Analysis of esterase enzyme activity in adults of the major malaria vector Anopheles funestus

March 3, 2016 - 16:15 -- Open Access
Dahan-Moss Y, Koekemoer L
Parasites & Vectors 2016, 9 :110 (27 February 2016)

The aim of this study was to analyse esterase activity levels at different ages during the life-span of adult Anopheles funestus Giles in order to better understand the complex biological processes in this species.

Rise of multiple insecticide resistance in Anopheles funestus in Malawi: a major concern for malaria vector control

September 21, 2015 - 17:28 -- Open Access
Jacob Riveron, Martin Chiumia, Benjamin Menze, Kayla Barnes, Helen Irving, Sulaiman Ibrahim, Gareth Weedall, Themba Mzilahowa, Charles Wondji
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:344 (15 September 2015)

Such increased resistance levels and rise of multiple resistance highlight the need to rapidly implement resistance management strategies to preserve the effectiveness of existing insecticide-based control interventions.
