Modelling the introduction of wolbachia into aedes aegypti mosquitoes to reduce dengue transmission

Ndii, Meksianis; Hickson, Roslyn; Mercer, Geoffry

Description

Infecting Aedes aegypti mosquitoes with the bacteria Wolbachia has been proposed as an innovative new strategy to reduce the transmission of dengue fever. Field trials are currently being undertaken in Queensland, Australia. However, few mathematical models have been developed to consider the persistence of Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes in the wild. This paper develops a mathematical model to determine the persistence of Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes by considering the competition between...[Show more]
