Abstract :

Wolbachia-based vector-control strategies have been proposed as a means to augment the currently existing measures for controlling dengue vector. The successful application of Wolbachia in insect control is critically dependent on the ability of the agent to invade and maintain itself at a high frequency in the natural population, with the goal that the mosquito population will carry the desired genotype. Wolbachia are being introduced into the mosquito vectors of human diseases, including the primary vector for dengue, Aedes aegypti, following the discovery that some strains of Wolbachia can cause pathogen interference as well as shortening the lifespan of mosquitoes, with the hope of causing reduction in viral transmission.
