A protease cascade regulates egress of Plasmodium falciparum from the human erythrocyte

It is concluded that SUB1 and SERA6 play distinct, essential roles in a coordinated proteolytic cascade that enables sequential rupture of the two bounding membranes leading to egress.

The Impact of Deforestation, Urbanization, and Changing Land Use Patterns on the Ecology of Mosquito and Tick-Borne Diseases in Central America

The current knowledge and potential impacts of deforestation, urbanization, and other land use changes on mosquito-borne and tick-borne disease transmission in Central America are reviewed and how these anthropogenic drivers could affect the risk for disease emergence and resurgence in the region are addressed.

There is the need for integration at all levels, while adopting the WHO policy guidelines on IVM, to play a very important role in the control of NTDs and is increasingly becoming a supplementary intervention strategy.

The contribution of agricultural insecticide use to increasing insecticide resistance in African malaria vectors

In 23 of the 25 relevant recent publications from across Africa, higher resistance in mosquito populations was associated with agricultural insecticide use, and this association appears to be affected by crop type, farm pest management strategy and urban development.
