Open Access | A multiplex assay for the simultaneous detection of antibodies against 15 Plasmodium falciparum and Anopheles gambiae saliva antigens

The multiplex assay developed here provides a useful tool to evaluate immune responses to multiple Ags in large populations, even when only small amounts of serum are available, or Ab titres are low, as in case of travellers.

Field observations have demonstrated that gravid Anopheles gambiae Giles s.s. (Diptera: Culicidae) are selective in their choice of oviposition sites. For example, immature stages of An. gambiae s.s. are rarely found in water that contains Culex quinquefasciatus Say immatures.

Open Access | Oral Presentation: Studies on the breeding swarms of Anopheles gambiae complex in malaria control perspective

This study aims to characterize the swarm structure and several environmental parameters associated with distribution of breeding swams and sites in the south of Benin.

Open Access | The effect of repeated washing of long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) on the feeding success and survival rates of Anopheles gambiae

November 3, 2010 - 08:16 -- Kabogo Ndegwa

Atieli FK, Munga SO, Ofulla AV, Vulule JM
Reference: 
Malaria Journal 2010, 9:304 (29 October 2010)

The result of this study shows that repeated washing of LLINs at short time intervals using local washing methods may render them infective within a short time in preventing local vectors from feeding.

Open Access | Wolbachia Stimulates Immune Gene Expression and Inhibits Plasmodium Development in Anopheles gambiae

Pathog 6(10): e1001143

The over-replicating wMelPop strain of the endosymbiont Wolbachia pipientis has recently been shown to be capable of inducing immune upregulation and inhibition of pathogen transmission in Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

SNP genotyping defines complex gene-flow boundaries among african malaria vector mosquitoes
