the ecology and larval habitats characteristics of anopheline mosquitoes (diptera: culicidae) in aligudarz county (luristan province, western iran).to determine ecology and characteristics of the larval habitats of the genus anopheles (dipetra: culicidae) in aligudarz county, western iran.025183088
molecular phylogenetic analysis of anopheles and cellia subgenus anophelines (diptera: culicidae) in temperate and tropical regions of iran.molecular studies on population genetics of speciation across iran have recently started. morphological and molecular studies have showed that 25 species of genus anopheles are present in the country; however, relationships between vector and non-vector species as well as compatibility of morphological characters with molecular data have not been verified. molecular phylogenetic analysis was undertaken on the anopheles and cellia subgenus members internal transcribed spacer 2 (its2) sequences su ...201323206579

imported malaria in albania and the risk factors that could allow its reappearance.malaria is an infectious disease gradually becoming a serious concern for public health institutions, even in european countries where the eradication of the disease was previously taken for granted. albania was listed as an endemic area from the beginning of the 20th century, but the disease was gradually under control and some decades after the world war ii it was merely considered a historical curiosity. nevertheless, for many reasons, since 1994 and in increasing trend, albanian health facil ...201323758911
analysis of the causes of spawning of large-scale, severe malarial epidemics and their rapid total extinction in western provence, historically a highly endemic region of france (1745-1850).the two main puzzles of this study are the onset and then sudden stopping of severe epidemics in western provence (a highly malaria-endemic region of mediterranean france) without any deliberate counter-measures and in the absence of significant population flux.201424581282
anopheles plumbeus (diptera: culicidae) in europe: a mere nuisance mosquito or potential malaria vector?anopheles plumbeus has been recognized as a minor vector for human malaria in europe since the beginning of the 20th century. in recent years this tree hole breeding mosquito species appears to have exploited novel breeding sites, including large and organically rich man-made containers, with consequently larger mosquito populations in close vicinity to humans. this lead to investigate whether current populations of an. plumbeus would be able to efficiently transmit plasmodium falciparum, the pa ...201223181931
finding of anopheles (anopheles) hyrcanus (pallas, 1771) (diptera, culicidae) during the entomological surveillance for west nile virus in umbria, italy.this study reports the mosquito collections conducted in july-august 2013 in castiglione del lago (umbria region, italy) during the entomological surveillance within the west nile national control program. the mosquito collections showed the noteworthy occurrence of anopheles hyrcanus s.l. (n = 156; 35.8% of the whole sample), a relatively rare mosquito species in italy, with molecular analyses con rming that these mosquitoes belong to an. hyrcanus s.s. the same catching site was characterized b ...201627723051
climate change is increasing the risk of the reemergence of malaria in romania.the climatic modifications lead to global warming; favouring the risk of the appearance and development of diseases are considered until now tropical diseases. another important factor is the workers' immigration, the economic crisis favouring the passive transmission of new species of culicidae from different areas. malaria is the disease with the widest distribution in the globe. millions of people are infected every year in africa, india, south-east asia, middle east, and central and south am ...201627847824
pcr identification and distribution of anopheles daciae (diptera, culicidae) in germany.based primarily on nucleotide polymorphisms in the internal transcribed spacer 2 (its2) of the ribosomal dna, anopheles daciae was recently described as an additional member of the maculipennis group of species, separate from anopheles messeae with which it had previously been confused due to morphological and genetic similarity. species differentiation between a. messeae and a. daciae was possible only by its2 polymerase chain reaction (pcr) amplification followed by dna sequencing or rflp anal ...201424696275
genetic and phenotypic variation of the malaria vector anopheles atroparvus in southern europe.there is a growing concern that global climate change will affect the potential for pathogen transmission by insect species that are vectors of human diseases. one of these species is the former european malaria vector, anopheles atroparvus. levels of population differentiation of an. atroparvus from southern europe were characterized as a first attempt to elucidate patterns of population structure of this former malaria vector. results are discussed in light of a hypothetical situation of re-es ...201121223582
role of the repartition of wetland breeding sites on the spatial distribution of anopheles and culex, human disease vectors in southern france.abstract: background: in this study, carried out in the camargue region (france), we combined entomological data with geomatic and modelling tools to assess whether the location of breeding sites may explain the spatial distribution of adult mosquitoes. the species studied are important and competent disease vectors in europe: culex modestus ficalbi and cx. pipiens linnaeus (west nile virus), anopheles atroparvus van thiel, a former plasmodium vector, and an. melanoon hackett, competent to trans ...201121548912
mosquitoes of the anopheles maculipennis group (diptera: culicidae) in romania, with the discovery and formal recognition of a new species based on molecular and morphological evidence.mosquitoes of the anopheles maculipennis group were collected in five districts of romania (constant,a, giurgiu, ilfov, mehedint,i and suceava) between march 2000 and june 2003. two hundred and ninety-seven specimens were identified by molecular methods. nuclear rdna its2 sequences of 178 specimens were compared with genbank sequences for nine known palaearctic species of the group, and 119 specimens were identified using an its2 pcr-rflp assay developed during the study. five genetically distin ...200415541192
malaria risk in corsica, former hot spot of malaria in france.background: the prevalence of plasmodium falciparum and plasmodium vivax malaria was very high in corsica just before the second world war. the last outbreak was in 1972 and the most recent indigenous case was in 2006. results: analysis of historical data shows that anopheline vectors were abundant. recent surveys demonstrated that potential vectors are still present in corsica, despite the likely disappearance of anopheles sacharovi. moreover, p. falciparum can develop experimentally into these ...201020704707
[identification of anopheles maculipennis group species using polymerase chain reaction (pcr) in the regions of birecik, beyşehir and cankiri.].malaria is the most important vector borne disease in the world and is endemic in the southeastern anatolia region of turkey. most important vector species for this disease are found within the anopheles maculipennis group that is distributed in the palaearctic region. the aim of this study was to identify the species of this group distributed within the regions of birecik, beyşehir and cankiri using molecular methods. the results of the molecular analysis indicated that only populations of an. ...201020340089
biology and dynamics of potential malaria vectors in southern france.malaria is a former endemic problem in the camargue, south east france, an area from where very few recent data concerning anopheles are available. a study was undertaken in 2005 to establish potential malaria vector biology and dynamics and evaluate the risk of malaria re-emergence.200717313664
molecular identification of palearctic members of anopheles maculipennis in northern iran.members of anopheles maculipennis complex are effective malaria vectors in europe and the caspian sea region in northern iran, where malaria has been re-introduced since 1994. the current study has been designed in order to provide further evidence on the status of species composition and to identify more accurately the members of the maculipennis complex in northern iran.200717233887
