This study evaluates the benefit to use 1) insecticidal paints, 2) larvicides, 3) Ivermectin for both human and domestic animals and 4) strengthened Information, Education and Communication (IEC) strategy to complement the universal coverage with LLINs through a cluster randomized trial.
Insecticidal paint comprised of two organophosphates (OPs) and an Insect Growth Regulator (IGR). This tool targets adult mosquitoes that are resistant pyrethroids to reduce vector density.
Larvicide is a new formulation of Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis that will be implemented in major permanent breeding sites with the objective to reduce vector density.
Ivermectin will be injected to domestic animals in addition to the national campaign implemented in the study area which treats the whole population. Ivermectin reduces the survival of mosquito that blood feed on treated humans and animals.
Information, Education and Communication strategy aims to increase the adherence of the population to control tools available. Strengthening the IEC aims to increase the good use of long lasting nets.

The present study assesses the pharmacokinetic profile of Ivermectin (IVM) in healthy human volunteers and aims to create a physiologically-based pharmacokinetic model. Planned indication ...
This is a community-based cluster-randomized trial in which a novel approach to interrupt residual malaria transmission by mass drug administration (MDA) with ivermectin (IVM) combined wit...
In the past decade, massive scale-up of long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) and indoor residual spraying (IRS) have led to significant reductions in malaria mortality and morbidity. Non...
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...
Understanding the spatiotemporal clustering of malaria transmission would help target interventions in settings of low malaria transmission. The aim of this study was to assess whether malaria infecti...
Despite historical and contemporary evidence of its effectiveness, larval source management with insecticides remains little used by most malaria control programs worldwide. Here we show that environm...
Evaluation of an alpha-cypermethrin + PBO mixture long-lasting insecticidal net VEERALIN® LN against pyrethroid resistant Anopheles gambiae s.s.: an experimental hut trial in M'bé, central Côte d'Ivoire.
Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are the primary method of malaria prevention. However, the widespread resistance to pyrethroids among major malaria vector species represents a significant threa...
Between half to one million people die annually from malaria. Anopheles gambiae mosquitos are major malaria vectors. Unfortunately, resistance to currently used A. gambiae control agents has emerged, ...
Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM VIVAX. This form of malaria is less severe than MALARIA, FALCIPARUM, but there is a higher probability for relapses to occur. Febrile paroxysms often occur every other day.
Vaccines made from antigens arising from any of the four strains of Plasmodium which cause malaria in humans, or from P. berghei which causes malaria in rodents.
A protozoan parasite that causes vivax malaria (MALARIA, VIVAX). This species is found almost everywhere malaria is endemic and is the only one that has a range extending into the temperate regions.
Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM. This is the severest form of malaria and is associated with the highest levels of parasites in the blood. This disease is characterized by irregularly recurring febrile paroxysms that in extreme cases occur with acute cerebral, renal, or gastrointestinal manifestations.
A protozoan parasite that occurs naturally in the macaque. It is similar to PLASMODIUM VIVAX and produces a type of malaria similar to vivax malaria (MALARIA, VIVAX). This species has been found to give rise to both natural and experimental human infections.
Malaria is a serious tropical disease spread by mosquitoes. If malaria is not diagnosed and treated promptly, it can be fatal. What causes malaria? Malaria is caused by a type of parasite known as Plasmodium. There are many different types of Plasmod...
