OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency of knockdown resistance (kdr) mutations in the malaria vector Anopheles gambiae s.s. from continental Equatorial Guinea; and to relate kdr genotypes with susceptibility to DDT and pyrethroid insecticides in this vector. METHODS Female mosquitoes were collected in two villages, Miyobo and Ngonamanga, of mainland Equatorial Guinea. Insecticide susceptibility tests were performed following WHO procedures. Anopheles gambiae complex specimens were identified… CONTINUE READING
