The role of agricultural use of insecticides in resistance to pyrethroids in Anopheles gambiae s.l. in Burkina Faso.
Agricultural use of insecticides is involved in the selection of resistance to these compounds in field populations of mosquitoes in Burkina Faso. Anopheles gambiae s.l. was resistant to permethrinExpand
In vivo antimalarial activities of extracts from Amaranthus spinosus L. and Boerhaavia erecta L. in mice.
The plant extracts showed significant antimalarial activities in the 4-day suppressive antimalaria assay in mice inoculated with red blood cells parasitized with Plasmodium berghei bergei. Expand
Decreased motivation in the use of insecticide-treated nets in a malaria endemic area in Burkina Faso
The motivation for the use of bednets decreased after less than a year, and concerted efforts are required to change behaviour by providing accurate information, most particularly by convincing people that mosquitoes are the only source of malaria, whilst recognising that there are other diseases with similar symptoms, caused in other ways.

Anopheles funestus (Diptera: Culicidae) in a Humid Savannah Area of Western Burkina Faso: Bionomics, Insecticide Resistance Status, and Role in Malaria Transmission
Abstract An entomological survey was carried out in three humid savannah sites of western Burkina Faso (Bama, Lena, and Soumousso) to 1) update the taxonomy of the Anopheles funestus Giles group, 2)Expand
Artesunate-Amodiaquine and Artemether-Lumefantrine Therapies and Selection of Pfcrt and Pfmdr1 Alleles in Nanoro, Burkina Faso
No clear association between the presence of Pfcrt and Pfmdr1 alleles carried at baseline and treatment failure was observed, raising the potential beneficial effect of using diverse ACT at the same time as first line treatments to reduce the selective pressure by each treatment regimen. Expand
[Malaria transmission in 1999 in the rice field area of the Kou Valley (Bama), (Burkina Faso)].
A longitudinal study based on mosquitoes sampled by larvae prospecting and adult catches on humans was carried out during 1999 in the rice field area of the Kou Valley to evaluate the malaria transmission level, finding that malaria transmission is due mainly to An. Expand
In vitro and in vivo antiplasmodial activity of ‘Saye’, an herbal Remedy used in Burkina Faso traditional medicine
‘Saye’, a traditional medicine used in Burkina Faso, which consists of extracts of Cochlospermum planchonii (rhizome), Cassia alata (leaf) and Phyllanthus amarus (whole plant), showed a significantExpand
Household expenditure on malaria prevention and treatment for families in the town Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso.
It is confirmed that there is a pattern of high expenditure on disease prevention and treatment among families in many parts of Africa and suggest that family resources could be used more effectively to promote better health. Expand
Relationship between the Pfcrt T76 and the Pfmdr-1 Y86 mutations in Plasmodium falciparum and in vitro/in vivo chloroquine resistance in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
Among pre-treatment samples there was a strong linkage disequilibrium with an excess of MM and WW and a deficit of single mutants (MW and WM), suggesting that parasite fitness is higher for the former and lower for the latter. Expand
Usefulness of the Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance transporter T76 genotype failure index for the estimation of in vivo chloroquine resistance in Burkina Faso.
The prevalence of chloroquine (CQ) treatment failure and the genotype failure index was determined in four sentinel sites in Burkina Faso and a result confirming the relationship between the Plasmodium falciparum CQ resistance transporter (Pfcrt) T76 mutation and CQ Resistance was confirmed. Expand
