Not Open Access | Plasmodium: Yet More Don’ts

February 9, 2019 - 18:51 -- NOT Open Access

Trends in Parasitology, Letter| Volume 35, Issue 2, P101-102, February 01, 2019

Anopheline’ is both an adjective (‘anopheline mosquito’) and a noun. Don’t use an upper case ‘A’, except at the beginning of a sentence; and do not italicize the word as if it is a Latinized genus name.

The continual monitoring of these vectors during the late operational phase may be useful in order to understand how anophelines will behave in this area.

Draft Genomes of Anopheles cracens and Anopheles maculatus: Comparison of Simian Malaria and Human Malaria Vectors in Peninsular Malaysia

PLoS ONE 11(6): e0157893

Anopheles cracens has been incriminated as the vector of human knowlesi malaria in peninsular Malaysia.


Pilot longitudinal mosquito surveillance study in the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve and the first reports of Anopheles algeriensis Theobald, 1903 and Aedes hungaricus Mihályi, 1955 for Romania

April 26, 2016 - 16:10 -- Open Access
Török E, Tomazatos A, Lühken R, et al.
Parasites & Vectors 2016, 9 :196 (11 April 2016)

We initiated a longitudinal mosquito surveillance study with carbon dioxide-baited Heavy Duty Encephalitis Vector Survey traps at four sampling sites to analyse the spatio-temporal pattern of the (i) mosquito species composition and diversity, (ii) functional groups of mosquitoes (oviposition sites, overwintering stage, and number of generations), and (iii) the occurrence of potential West Nile virus (WNV) vectors.

Behaviour and molecular identification of Anopheles malaria vectors in Jayapura district, Papua province, Indonesia

April 8, 2016 - 17:07 -- Open Access
Brandy St. Laurent, Sukowati Supratman, Neil F. Lobo, et al.
Malaria Journal 2016 15:192, 8 April 2016

The vector composition in Papua, Indonesia is consistent with certain northern areas of PNG, but the behaviours of anophelines sampled in this region, such as early and indoor human biting of An. farauti 4, may enable them to act as major vectors of malaria.

Malaria incidence and entomological findings in an area targeted for a cluster-randomized controlled trial to prevent malaria in Ethiopia: results from a pilot study

March 10, 2016 - 17:19 -- Open Access
Taye Gari, Oljira Kenea, Bernt Lindtjørn, et al.
Malaria Journal 2016 15:145, 8 March 2016

This study showed a high variation in malaria incidence and Anopheles between kebeles.


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

March 10, 2016 - 13:44 -- 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.

Bio-efficacy of new long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets against Anopheles funestus and Anopheles gambiae from central and northern Mozambique

September 22, 2015 - 17:45 -- Open Access
Ana Abílio, Pelágio Marrune, Nilsa de Deus, Francisco Mbofana, Pedro Muianga, Ayubo Kampango
Malaria Journal 2015, 14:352 (17 September 2015)

The study shows evidence of considerable heterogeneity in both insecticide susceptibility and the level of bio-efficacy of commonly available types of LLINs against wild A. funestus and A. gambiae from Balama, Mocuba and Milange districts, located in north and centre of Mozambique.


Humans frequently exposed to a range of non-human primate malaria parasite species through the bites of Anopheles dirus mosquitoes in South-central Vietnam

July 21, 2015 - 16:44 -- Open Access
Maeno Y, Quang N, Culleton R, Kawai S, Masuda G, Nakazawa S, Marchand R
Parasites & Vectors 2015, 8 :376 (16 July 2015)

In this study we analysed the species composition of malarial sporozoites infecting the salivary glands of Anopheles dirus in order to determine their potential role as bridge vectors of Plasmodium parasites from monkeys to humans.


Knockdown resistance (kdr) mutations in Indian Anopheles culicifacies populations

June 24, 2015 - 15:40 -- Open Access
Dykes C, Kushwah R, Das M, Sharma S, Bhatt R, Veer V, Agrawal O, Adak T, Singh O
Parasites & Vectors 2015, 8 :333 (18 June 2015)

This vector is resistant to DDT in most parts of the country with indication of emerging resistance to pyrethroids. Since knockdown resistance (kdr) is known to confer cross-resistance between DDT and pyrethroids owing to a common target site of action, knowledge of prevalence of knockdown resistance (kdr) alleles is important from insecticide resistance management point of view.
