MalariaWorldMalaria is infamously a disease of poverty. A map of the world’s nations designating those with the lowest per capita income roughly doubles as a map of malaria endemicity [1,2]. As economies strengthen, improvements in education, housing and medical services reduce the impact of this devastating parasitic infection.

Open Access | Review: Low- and High-Tech Approaches to Control Plasmodium Parasite Transmission by Anopheles Mosquitoes

Journal of Tropical Medicine, Volume 2011 (2011)

MalariaWorldIn this paper, we summarize research on two approaches to malaria control, a low-tech strategy based on parasite inhibition by the mosquito's natural microflora, and a high-tech strategy using genetic modification of mosquitoes that renders them resistant to infection and discuss advantages and disadvantages for both approaches.
