A new world malaria map: Plasmodium falciparum endemicity in 2010

Gething, Peter, Patil, Anand, Smith, David, Guerra, Carlos, Elyazar, Iqbal, Johnston, Geoffrey, Tatem, Andrew, Hay, Simon
Malaria Journal 10(1), 378. (2011)

BACKGROUND:Transmission intensity affects almost all aspects of malaria epidemiology and the impact of malaria on human populations. Maps of transmission intensity are necessary to identify populations at different levels of risk and to evaluate objectively options for disease control. To remain relevant operationally, such maps must be updated fre...

A world malaria map: Plasmodium falciparum endemicity in 2007

Hay, S. I., Guerra, C. A., Gething, P. W., Patil, A. P., Tatem, A. J., Noor, A. M., Kabaria, C. W., Manh, B. H. , Elyazar, I. R. F., Brooker, S. , Smith, D. L. , Moyeed, R. A., Snow, R. W.

BACKGROUND: Efficient allocation of resources to intervene against malaria requires a detailed understanding of the contemporary spatial distribution of malaria risk. It is exactly 40 y since the last global map of malaria endemicity was published. This paper describes the generation of a new world map of Plasmodium falciparum malaria endemicity fo...

Chlorfenapyr: a new insecticide with novel mode of action can control pyrethroid resistant malaria vectors

BACKGROUND: Malaria vectors have acquired widespread resistance to many of the currently used insecticides, including synthetic pyrethroids. Hence, there is an urgent need to develop alternative insecticides for effective management of insecticide resistance in malaria vectors. In the present study, chlorfenapyr was evaluated against Anopheles culi...

Common Insecticides used in Vector control

R. Farlow Consulting, LLC, VecNet

A data set of Common Insecticides used in vector control including: products used for Indoor residual sprays, products used for mosquito larvae control, products used for LLIN, products used for space sprays.

Determination of Toxicity and Igr Effect of Diflubenzuron and Rb-B Formulation on the Larvae of Aedes-Aegypti

Naqvi, S. N. H., Azmi, M. A., Jahan, M., Naz, U., Akhtar, K.
Natl Acad Sci Lett 17(9-10), 193-194. (Sep-Oct 1994)

Insect growth regulators have obtained an important pest management. The present report deals with the determination of toxic and IGR effects of diflubenzuron and RB-b (an extract of air-dried fruit of neem) against 4th instar larvae of Aedes aegypti. The neem extract RB-b was used with a synergist (RB-b + PBO + Tx - 100).

Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) for indoor residual spraying in Africa: how can it be used for malaria control?

Breman, J. G.
Am J Trop Med Hyg 77(6 Suppl), 249-63. (Dec 2007)

In 2006, the World Health Organization issued a position statement promoting the use of indoor residual spraying (IRS) with dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) for malaria vector control in epidemic and endemic areas. Other international organizations concurred because of the great burden of malaria and the relative ineffectiveness of current tre...

Effect of sublethal dose of diflubenzuron and azadirachtin on various life table attributes of Culex quinquefasciatus (Diptera: Culicidae)

Suman, D. S., Parashar, B. D., Prakash, S.
J Med Entomol 47(6), 996-1002. (Nov 2010)

The exposure of sublethal doses (25% emergence inhibition) of diflubenzuron (DFB) (0.0002 mg/liter) and azadirachtin (AZD; 0.0079 mg/liter) insect growth regulators was provided to late third- early fourth instars of Culex quinquefasciatus till emergence of adults to find out the effects on various biological and life table attributes of adults, an...
