Project description

English EN

Modulating mosquito immunity to Dengue

Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection causing flu-like illness. Its global incidence has grown dramatically in the last few decades. Its 'severe' form is now a leading cause of hospitalisation and death in most Asian and Latin American countries. Due to insecticide resistance, killing mosquitoes is no longer effective but modulating its immunity to Dengue virus may provide a solution. Preliminary genomic studies of susceptible and immune mosquitoes pointed to differences in metabolic pathways. MetAeAvIm is evaluating the metabolism of mosquitoes via high-tech strategies to determine which genes and pathways modulate Dengue immunity in mosquitoes. Preventing infection in mosquitoes could prevent transmission to humans.
