  • Bioeconomy Institute Speaker Series: Developing Wolbachia-Based Control Strategies to Block Dengue Virus Transmission in Mosquitoes (April 2017)

    Wednesday, April 12, 2017.  3:30 pm.

    Location:

    Description:

    Dengue Fever, and associated dengue hemorrhagic fever, is emerging globally as the most important arboviral disease threatening human populations.  At the present time, no treatment or vaccine is available for dengue fever leaving vector control as the primary intervention tool. In nature, about 28 percent of mosquito species harbor Wolbachia bacteria, but the mosquitoes that are the primary transmitters of dengue have no Wolbachia in them. Wolbachia has been found to stop the dengue virus from replicating. If there is no virus in the mosquito, it can’t spread to people, so disease transmission can be blocked.
