"Bantningsmedicin can slow down the myggsmitta"
"Bantningsmedicin for people can reduce the myggors blood lust, and thus also inhibit the spread of deadly diseases such as yellow fever, zikavirus and dengue fever, according to a new study."
"The devastating myggarten Aedes aegypti, in Swedish referred to as the yellow fever mosquito, spreads several diseases, which annually harvests of deaths. But now, researchers have found a possible way to quell the myggartens hunger for the blood of man, reports CNN."
"– We were impressed and fascinated by medicines that have been developed to influence people's appetite has also worked just fine when it came to dampen myggors hunger, " says Leslie Vosshall, one of the researchers from the Rockefeller University in New York, which is located behind the study published in the journal Cell."
"the Scientists performed the tests in the study of females from myggarten Aedes aegypti, which need human blood to produce eggs. The mosquitoes were given a saline solution that contained the same substances used in medicine intended to control the food intake of people. The result was that the businesses desire and attraction to human blood, decreased drastically."
"James Logan, who is head of department at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, says to CNN that the study's findings are"
"– One of the biggest problems with controlling mosquito-borne infections are businesses resistance to pesticides. A mix with a new bekämpningsmetod that prevents the mosquitoes eat could be useful if it is effective, logistically feasible and sustainable under field conditions, " says James Logan."
"He warns, however, that much work remains before the method can be used in real-world conditions."
"Aedes aegypti, with the Swedish name of the yellow fever mosquito, is widespread in the world's tropical and subtropical areas."
"the Mosquito is common in densely populated areas and this species is the most significant referral of the viruses that cause yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya. Aedes aegypti also spreads zikavirus from man to man."
