Long Lasting Insecticidal Bednet to market by 2011 – Bayer

Apr '10
Researchers from Bayer CropScience have now found a way of incorporating insecticides directly into the fibers of a plastic fabric to provide people in the tropics with long-term night-time protection against mosquitoes.

The most important form of protection against infection by these flying bloodsuckers is a fine-mesh net with a weave as fine as a bride's veil.

At night mosquitoes emerge from the wetlands and seek out their victims. One bite is enough to enable the insects to drink their fill of blood. Yet they often leave behind a deadly reminder of their visit in people's blood: parasites that cause malaria, one of the most dangerous tropical diseases. Every year more than 880,000 people die of this disease worldwide, more than 85 percent of them children under five.

It is planned to bring the new, Long Lasting Insecticidal Bednet to market under the brand LifeNet by 2011. Mid of march, Bayer CropScience has submitted the dossier for the new insecticidal bednet to the World Health Organization (WHO) and expect a recommendation in 2011.
