The Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) in Kisumu is studying the effect of the drug “Ivermectin” against mosquitoes.
It is specific against parasitic infections in humans and quickly kills mosquitoes which bite people taking it.
The effect lasts for 28 days in humans and the drug is well tolerated in high dosages, suggesting that combined with treated nets it could be widely used to combat malaria.
