Sperm-free mosquitoes could be effective in tackling dengue fever

A UK-based scientific team has genetically modified male mosquitoes so that their offspring die before reproducing. These mosquitoes could prove effective in tackling dengue fever and other insect-borne diseases, the team said.Dengue is caused by a virus transmitted by the Aedes aegypti mosquito as it bites, cannot be curbed by bednets or indoor spraying. When females breed with the sterile males rather than wild fertile ones, there will be no viable offspring, meaning there are fewer mosquitoes around to transmit the disease.The researchers found the GM males mated successfully with wild females in a dengue-affected part of the Cayman Islands after they were released GM in 2009.
