Studies on Aedes polynesiensis introgression and ecology to facilitate lymphatic filariasis control

Abstract:

The mosquito Aedes polynesiensis, a member of the Aedes scutellaris complex, is the main vector in the South Pacific region of the Wuchereria bancrofti parasite, the causative agent of lymphatic filariasis (LF), and is also a major nuisance biter. Decades of Mass Drug treatment (MDA) have not been successful in elimination LF.
