Using weather data to defeat malaria

The connection between climate and health is undeniable. Changing weather patterns increase transmission risk of mosquito-borne diseases, like malaria. By using data to time and target interventions, we can turn weather obstacles into opportunities.  A changing climate is a threat to human health. Increases in severe weather events – like […]

Low-cost imaging system poised to provide automatic mosquito tracking

Mosquito-transmitted diseases such as malaria, dengue and yellow fever are responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths every year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). A new low-cost imaging system could make it easier to track mosquito species that carry disease, enabling a more timely and targeted response. “A […]

Genetic variation not an obstacle to gene drive strategy to control mosquitoes

New research from entomologists at UC Davis clears a potential obstacle to using CRISPR-Cas9 “gene drive” technology to control mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever and Zika. The idea is to create genetically engineered mosquitoes (GEM) that either fail to reproduce, reducing the mosquito population, or that […]

Novel compound sparks new malaria treatment hope

A novel class of antimalarial compounds that can effectively kill malaria parasites has been developed by Australian and US researchers. In preclinical testing, the compounds were effective against different species of malaria parasites, including the deadly Plasmodium falciparum, and at multiple stages of the parasite lifecycle. The compounds target a […]
