BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Malaria has become endemic and subject of concern in most part of the India especially Northeastern states of India. Surveys before 2000 revealed that Anopheles minimus was major vector responsible for transmission of malaria in this region followed by An. dirus and An. fluviatilis. However, recent studies indicate replacement of An. minimus vector by An. culicifacies due to different ecological changes and change in landuse pattern etc. The objective of present study was to explore the vectorial role of An...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Association between polymorphisms in the natural resistance associated macrophage protein 1 (NRAMP1) gene and susceptibility to cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) has been demonstrated worldwide; however, the reported results were inconsistent. This study aimed to determine the association of NRAMP1 variants with susceptibility to CL infection and patients' response to treatment in Isfahan province of Iran. METHODS: Peripheral blood samples were collected from 150 patients with CL and 136 healthy controls...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Leishmaniasis is an endemic parasitic disease reported sporadically throughout Iran. Golestan province is one of the 17 zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) foci. In this study, ecoepidemiological characteristics of ZCL were investigated in Gonbad-e Kavus County, Golestan province of Iran. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was carried out in three endemic villages and one ZCL-free village by exploiting a stratified random sampling methodology in 2013...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Aedes albopictus (Skuse) is one of the major vectors of dengue which is an emerging threat in Northeast part of India. The morphological characterisation of mosquitoes is time consuming and lacks accuracy for distinguishing closely related species. Hence, molecular methods of mosquito identification, genetic diversity and molecular phylogeny have gained increased importance. This study was aimed to identify and characterize the most abundant species of Aedes vectors collected from different breeding spots in Assam, Northeast India employing molecular as well as bioinformatics tools...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease, incidences of which have increased rapidly in the past decade. About 400 million new infections are recorded annually worldwide, and 40% of the human population lives in the areas at risk of dengue transmission. In this study, the clinical and laboratory profile of dengue diagnosed patients returning to Poland from tropical areas has been analyzed. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 65 patients based on clinical symptoms and serological tests conducted in the Department of Tropical Parasitology of Institute of Maritime and Tropical Medicine (IMTM) in Gdynia, Poland during 2010-15...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Dengue epidemics have been linked to various climatic and environmental factors. Dengue cases are often found in clusters; identification of these clusters in early phase of epidemic can help in efficient control by implementing suitable public health interventions. In year 2014, Bhopal City in Madhya Pradesh, India witnessed an outbreak of dengue with 729 recorded cases. This study reports spatial and meteorological determinants and, demographic and clinical characteristics of the dengue outbreak in Bhopal City...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: In Ethiopia, nearly 10 million insecticide-treated bednets (ITNs) were distributed between 2004 and 2005; which touched 56 million in 2012. The study was aimed to determine the impact of these bednets on malaria prevalence, in Yaso district of Benishangul-Gumuz region, western Ethiopia. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted during the peak malaria transmission season (October-November, 2014) in the Yaso district, Benishangul-Gumuz region...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Under certain ecological circumstances, pathogens are able to rapidly adapt to new vectors. The great capacity of Plasmodium spp. to adapt to new anopheline mosquito vectors on different continents and the continuous ecological changes attributed to humans might promote their adaptation to culicine vectors, which are known to infect humans. Based on our current knowledge, it is difficult to predict whether such adaptations will occur. This study was aimed to determine the infection susceptibility of Anopheles sinensis, Culex tritaeniorhynchus and Cx...

Vector-borne diseases particularly those transmitted by mosquitoes like Dengue are among the leading causes of mortality and morbidity in human population. There are no effective vaccines or treatment against dengue fever till date and the control methods are limited. So, new approaches are urgently in need to reverse these trends. Vector control is currently the primary intervention tool. Strategies that reduce or block pathogen transmission by mosquitoes have been proposed as a means of augmenting current control measures to reduce the growing burden of vector-borne diseases...

REVIEW
Tadesse Hailu, Mulat Yimer, Wondemagegn Mulu, Bayeh Abera
Leishmaniasis is a disease caused by an obligate intracellular protozoan that affects animals and human. Transmission is zoonotic and/or anthroponotic through the bite of an infected female sandfly. Control and elimination of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) require proper case detection, identification of reservoir hosts, and launching of effective vector control strategies in endemic areas. The aim of this review was to highlight the challenges in VL control in developing countries. Literatures pertaining to VL burden, diagnosis, prevention and control from the year 1969 to 2014 were systematically reviewed from PubMed, Scopus, Medline and Google scholar sources during July 2015...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: It is well reported that exhaled CO 2 and skin odour from human being assist female mosquitoes to locate human host. Basically, the receptors for this activity are expressed in cpA neurons. In both Aedes aegypti and Anopheles gambiae, this CO 2-sensitive olfactory neuron detects myriad number of chemicals present in human skin. Therefore, manipulation of gustatory receptors housing these neurons may serve as important targets for behavioural intervention. The study was aimed towards virtual screening of small molecules in the analyzed conserved active site residues of gustatory receptor and molecular dynamics simulation study of optimum protein-ligand complex to identify a suitable lead molecule for distracting host-seeking behaviour of mosquitoes...

BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: To combat the problem of antimalarial drug resistance, monitoring the changes in drug efficacy over time through periodic surveillance is essential. Since 2009, systematic and continuous monitoring is being done through nationwide sentinel site system. Potential early warning signs like partner drug resistance markers were also monitored in the clinical samples from the study areas. METHODS: A total of 1864 patients with acute uncomplicated malaria were enrolled in therapeutic efficacy studies of artesunate plus sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (AS+SP) for Plasmodium falciparum; those infected with P...
