Development of Novel Vector Control Technology and Product Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine

Biao Jiang, Jianhua Yao, Ping Xing, Jia Li and Wanjun Wang of the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences together with their international partners Ole Skovmand and Sérgio Sousa both of Landcent (Europe) B.V. in The Netherlands will utilize in silico screening to discover mosquito insecticide or repellent compounds in traditional Chinese medicine. At least one safe, environmentally friendly and efficient novel mosquito insecticide or repellent insecticide is expected to be obtained, which will then be used to further develop outdoor vector control technology or products. The development of such mosquito insecticides or repellent compounds will help address insecticide resistance issues and accelerate the global malaria elimination process.
