vector-borne diseases, paratransgenesis, genetic modification
The high incidence of Vector-borne diseases (VBDs) and the inefficiency of current methods in preventing and treating them have been driving research for alternative solutions. Here, we present an approach called paratransgenesis that could help in such challenge. In paratransgenesis, genetic modification in vectors' symbionts can be used to block the transmission of various pathogens and help preventing or even eradicate insect-transmitted diseases.
