Anopheles mosquito surveillance in Madagascar reveals multiple blood feeding behavior and Plasmodium infection.

Summary of "Anopheles mosquito surveillance in Madagascar reveals multiple blood feeding behavior and Plasmodium infection."

The Madagascar National Strategic Plan for Malaria Control 2018 (NSP) outlines malaria control pre-elimination strategies that include detailed goals for mosquito control. Primary surveillance protocols and mosquito control interventions focus on indoor vectors of malaria, while many potential vectors feed and rest outdoors. Here we describe the application of tools that advance our understanding of diversity, host choice, and Plasmodium infection in the Anopheline mosquitoes of the Western Highland Fringe of Madagascar.

Multiple Blood Feeding: A Force Multiplier for Transmission.

Anopheles mosquitoes employ complex behavioral and physiological strategies to adapt to their environment. Here we show how altering the number of bites a mosquito takes per gonotrophic cycle (gonotro...

Safety, pharmacokinetics, and mosquito-lethal effects of ivermectin in combination with dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine and primaquine in healthy adult Thai subjects.

Mass administration of antimalarial drugs and ivermectin are being considered as potential accelerators of malaria elimination. The safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and mosquito-lethal effects o...

Parasitism: Anopheles Mosquitoes and Plasmodium Parasites Share Resources.

Female Anopheles mosquitoes are the definitive hosts of Plasmodium parasites. A new study has found that successful establishment and development of Plasmodium in the Anopheles midgut requires mosquit...

Interaction of RNA viruses of the natural virome with the African malaria vector, Anopheles coluzzii.

Mosquitoes are colonized by a little-studied natural virome. Like the bacterial microbiome, the virome also probably influences the biology and immunity of mosquito vector populations, but tractable e...

The male mosquito contribution towards malaria transmission: Mating influences the Anopheles female midgut transcriptome and increases female susceptibility to human malaria parasites.

Mating causes dramatic changes in female physiology, behaviour, and immunity in many insects, inducing oogenesis, oviposition, and refractoriness to further mating. Females from the Anopheles gambiae ...
