Human Antibody Response to Anopheles Saliva (paper)

Image
A paper published September 24, 2012 in PLoS ONE discusses the human antibody response to Anopheles saliva in children from Balombo, Angola between the ages of 2 to 9 years of age to compare the efficacy of three malaria vector control methods. The three vector control methods used were deltamethrin treated long lasting impregnated nets (LLIN) and insecticide treated plastic sheeting (ITPS) - Zero Fly®) (ITPS-ZF), deltamethrin impregnated Durable (Wall) Lining (ITPS-DL – Zerovector®) alone, and indoor residual spraying (IRS) with lambdacyhalothrin alone, all of which resulted in considerable decreases in all three entomological (82.4%), parasitological (54.8%) and immunological criteria analyzed.
