"These findings are of great concern, since they support the idea that insecticide resistance might not permit a substantial decrease in malaria morbidity in many parts of Africa where A gambiae is the major vector and acquired clinical immunity is a key epidemiological factor."
"The study was done over a short period of time (4 years) which restricts any attempt to differentiate between short-term heterogeneity in malaria transmission and long-term shifts in malaria epidemiology...[and] also raises questions about how fast an individual previously exposed to stable transmission (i.e., before the scale-up of malaria control) loses their acquired immunity, especially in adults with decades of exposure to repeated malaria parasite infections."Written by Petra Rattue
