Mosquito networks commonly used on mosquito nets can be a new tool to prevent disease from impregnating, because some mosquitoes have become resistant to insecticides, according to research published on Wednesday.
The use of food insecticides has been in the years of resources recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevent malicious anti-malaria mosquitoes.
According to the 2015 study, this method has been reduced by two thirds from 2000 to 2000.
But more and more mosquitoes have developed insecticidal resistance to what has been used so far, which challenges the effectiveness of this strategy.
The WHO reported in November that the end of the evolution of the epidemic caused by 219 million people led to 435,000 deaths in 2017.
A research team at Harvard University (Boston, USA) has designed an alternative pathway that does not kill mosquitoes, but prevents Plasmodium from losing its parasite.
Scientists play in the lab like a mosquito in a mosquito net. Insects were infused with the parasitic blood and were contacted for a period of six minutes with Atovacuona or ATQ with a low dose dose, anti-malaria drug.
In humans, this type of prevention medicine kills the parasite and inhibits mitochondrial functions. According to the article published in the Nature magazine, the same results are shown to show insects directly on ATQ.
"We have done two types of malaria testing and ATQ has worked very well: all parasites have been deleted!" Explained Flaminia Catteruccia, Harvard Professor of Infectology and the author of the research.
This method is "safe for people who sleep under mosquitoes and the environment," said Catteruccia, and it was effective before burning before contacting ants before contaminating blood 24 hours beforehand.
According to the computer model developed by the researchers, this method "healthy resistance against insecticides and mosquitoes" can cause serious damage to malaria.
In this regard, the research still exists in the preliminary phase.
