Aquatain® Mosquito Formulation (AMF) for the control of immature Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto and Anopheles arabiensis: dose-responses, persistence and sub-lethal effects
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:438 (16 September 2014)
This study reports the efficacy and persistence of AMF for the control of major malaria vectors in sub-Saharan Africa in laboratory and standardized field conditions. Further studies to evaluate the effectiveness of AMF for control of malaria vectors in their natural habitats in field conditions are needed.

Pyriproxyfen for mosquito control: female sterilization or horizontal transfer to oviposition substrates by Anopheles gambiae sensu stricto and Culex quinquefasciatus
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:280 (21 June 2014)
This study highlights that pyriproxifen exposure of adult Anopheles gambiae s.s. and Culex quiquefasciatus between 24 hours before and after a bloodmeal sterilizes females and affects their ability to transfer pyriproxifen to an aquatic habitat.

A global assembly of adult female mosquito mark-release-recapture data to inform the control of mosquito-borne pathogens
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:276 (19 June 2014)
A global database of adult female mosquito mark-release-recapture experiments was assembled with the ultimate aim to providing a resource to inform pathogen transmission models. Preliminary analyses identified intriguing patterns. Image: Recapture success (per cent recaptured) by genus and source of released mosquitoes.
Evaluation of the influence of electric nets on the behaviour of oviposition site seeking Anopheles gambiae s.s
Parasites & Vectors 2014, 7:272 (19 June 2014)
Electric nets are a useful tool to analyse the oviposition behaviour of gravid malaria vectors, Anopheles gambiae s.l.. The study evaluates how the set-up affects the behaviour of the mosquito in order to interpret trapping results correctly. Image: Square of electric nets surrounding an artificial pond.

A paper of significance in understanding the ecology of gravid malaria vectors. giving a clear basis to build on in designing trapping tools and control measures accordingly.
Socio-economic inequalities in patient, primary care, referral, diagnostic, and treatment intervals on the lung cancer care pathway: protocol for a systematic review and meta-analysis
Systematic Reviews 2014, 3:30 (25 March 2014)
Socio-economic inequalities are believed to contribute to differences in cancer survival, thus, this protocol describes the implementation of a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether there are socio-economic inequalities in time spent on the lung cancer treatment and diagnostic pathway.
