Thirty-four strains of Asian and Pacific mosquitoes belonging to 22 species of 7 genera were compared for oral and/or parenteral susceptibility to infection with 1 or more strains of each of the 4 dengue serotypes. Surprisingly, several species of common man-biting Aedes were much more susceptible to oral infection with each of the 4 dengue serotypes than was Aedes aegypti. These species included Aedes albopictus and members of the scutellaris group of the subgenus Stegomyia found on South… CONTINUE READING
