Comparisons of bednets treated either with alphacypermethrin or lambdacyhalothrin showed similar effectiveness by various entomological criteria. Lambdacyhalothrin was associated with significantly more reports of nasal irritation than alphacypermethrin. The 2 net treatments were equally effective in reducing incidence of new malaria infections and the treated nets were much more effective than untreated nets. These measurements were made after clearing existing infections with chlorproguanil… CONTINUE READING
