EFFECTS OF UNTREATED BED NETS ON THE TRANSMISSION OF PLASMODIUM-FALCIPARUM, PLASMODIUM-VIVAX AND WUCHERERIA-BANCROFTI IN PAPUA-NEW-GUINEA

Description The impact of untreated bed nets on the transmission of human malaria and filariasis in a village in a hyperendemic area of Papua New Guinea was studied. In anopheline mosquitoes, the Plasmodium falciparum sporozoite antigen positivity rate, filarial infection rates and human blood indices dropped significantly after bed nets were introduced. This reduction in human-vector contact did not affect mosquito density as no significant difference in either landing rates or indoor resting catches was found. The number of bed nets in a house and ownership of dogs were factors significantly associated with a reduction in the number of indoor resting mosquitoes. However, the reduction in the P. falciparum sporozoite antigen rate in mosquitoes was not accompanied by a reduction in either malaria parasite or antibody prevalences' or titres against the P. falciparum circumsporozoite protein.
