  1. 1. Decoding the language of transmission among vector-pathogen-host

    Author : Melika Hajkazemian; S. Noushin Emami; Richard Hopkins; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vector-borne disease; Malaria; Anopheles; Plasmodium falciparum; Zika; Aedes; Vector control strategy; molekylär biovetenskap; Molecular Bioscience;

    Abstract : Vector-borne diseases account for over 17 percent of all infectious diseases and lead to more than 700,000 mortalities annually. Importantly, there is a complex interaction between infectious organisms and their host. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards Mosquitocides for Prevention of Vector-Borne Infectious Diseases : discovery and Development of Acetylcholinesterase 1 Inhibitors

    Author : Sofie Knutsson; Anna Linusson; Fredrik Almqvist; Andreas Larsson; Ulf Nilsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mosquito; vector-borne diseases; vector control; insecticide; acetylcholinesterase; medicinal chemistry; high-throughput screening; organic synthesis; homology modeling; structure activity relationship; structure selectivity relationship; datorlingvistik; computational linguistics; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Diseases such as malaria and dengue impose great economic burdens and are a serious threat to public health, with young children being among the worst affected. These diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes, also called disease vectors, which are able to transmit both parasitic and viral infections. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oviposition cues as a tool for developing a new malaria control strategy

    Author : Lynda Eneh; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Willem Takken; KTH; []
    Keywords : Anopheles gambiae; Malaria; Oviposition; Volatile compounds; GC-MS; DGGE; Sorption; Fungi; Bacteria; Physicochemical parameters; Nut grass; Bermuda grass; Anopheles gambiae; Malaria; Äggläggning; Flyktiga ämnen; GC-MS; DGGE; Sorptionen; Svampar; Bakterier; Gräs; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Anopheles gambiae sensu lato mosquitoes are among the dominant malaria vectors in sub-Saharan Africa. However, not much is known about the oviposition behaviour of these species necessary for the development of malaria vector control strategies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Targeting malaria elimination : an assessment of malaria control interventions for children in Zanzibar

    Author : Netta Beer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : Zanzibar;

    Abstract : Background: After decades of neglect, a renewed global focus on malaria was initiated in the 90s, followed by global financial support in the early 2000s. Zanzibar has been in the forefront of these renewed efforts: Case management and vector-control interventions have been implemented and scaled-up rapidly, resulting in markedly reduced malaria transmission and the targeting of malaria elimination.

  5. 5. Exploration of bacteria associated with Anopheles mosquitoes around the world : For the prevention of transmission of malaria

    Author : Louise K. J. Nilsson; Olle Terenius; Staffan Svärd; Sebastian Håkansson; Michael Strand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; microbiota; microbiome; vector-borne disease; 16S rRNA gene; amplicon sequencing; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Every year, hundreds of thousands of people die from malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites, which are spread by female vector mosquitoes of the genus Anopheles. Current control measures against malaria are based on drugs against the parasites and vector control using insecticides. READ MORE
