Bayer to start malaria vector control trials

Bayer CropScience has signed research agreements to start field evaluations of new insecticidal solutions for malaria vector control at multiple locations in Africa. The company is confident that it can bring a product to market well before the end of this decade subject to regulatory approval, provided that preliminary data are confirmed in field trials. The research is in response to the Global Plan for Insecticide Resistance Management (GPIRM) drawn by the UN WHO last year for tackling the threat of insecticide resistance in malaria-spreading mosquitoes (Agrow No 642, p 20). The plan urges affected countries and stakeholders to take immediate action to preserve the effectiveness of current vector control tools and to ensure that new public health insecticides with new modes of actions are made available.
