Oct 14: Entomologists of the GCU, Lahore, successfully genetically modified the aedes aegypti mosquito to block the transmission of dengue virus to humans.

Highlights

1.The team of GCU entomologists used Wolbachia, a genus of bacteria, as a biological agent for the genetic modification of the laboratory-reared aedes aegypti mosquitoes.
2,The Wolbachia-based technique makes the mosquito incapable of carrying and transmitting dengue viruses.
3.Wolbachia carrying aedes has been released in many countries, such as, Australia, Brazil, Indonesia and Vietnam, with no negative impact on public health and ecology.
4. Wolbachia provides a safe strategy because the bacteria are naturally present in a large population of insects.
5.This is the only novel approach for the sustainable control of dengue disease in Pakistan.
6.This approach is economic (reduces insecticide cost and problem of resistance in vector mosquitoes) and environment friendly.

About Aedes Aegypti

*The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the main vector that transmits the viruses that cause dengue.
*The viruses are passed on to humans through the bites of an infective female Aedes mosquito.
*It mainly acquires the virus while feeding on the blood of an infected person.
