Mosquitoes keep out!

Anti-malaria netting developed by the EU-funded project MCD has received US$10.2 million in funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for field tests of the invention in Côte d'Ivoire and Tanzania. Around 6 000 houses in 20 rural villages in Côte d’Ivoire are targeted for the trial of the netting inserts, which fit into ventilation PVC tubes put into walls below a house’s eaves to protect those inside. Mosquitoes tend to enter these ‘eave tubes’ when trying to enter the house, but end up on the netting, and make contact with the insecticide. “The aim is to provide scientific evidence that the invention works to reduce malaria and could be broadly deployed,” says MCD project coordinator Bart Knols of In2Care in the Netherlands. “These data are needed to move through the WHO approval process and receive endorsement for the approach.”

Fresh search for a vaccine against Malaria

Hundreds of millions of people each year are infected with Plasmodium vivax, the most widespread form of malaria worldwide. An EU-funded project is tackling the mosquito-borne parasite, leading cutting-edge research efforts to accelerate the development of effective vaccines. The MULTIVIVAX project, coordinated by the Jenner Institute at the University of Oxford in the UK, is addressing critical research bottlenecks that have hindered the discovery and development of potential vaccines for Plasmodium vivax. The parasite accounts for up to 400 million clinical cases of malaria each year among the 2.5 billion people living in at risk areas of Latin America, Oceania and Asia. Though less virulent and deadly than Plasmodium falciparum, infections of Plasmodium vivax can cause high fever, organ dysfunction and death as they spread through the body in the blood after reproducing in the liver.
