Long-lasting Insecticidal Nets

Long-lasting insecticidal nets (LLINs) are one of the key primary methods used in the fight against Malaria (particularly in WHO Africa and Asia region) with a bio-efficacy of at least 20 washes and 3 years of field use without need for re-treatment. They act as a physical barricade to prevent mosquitoes from reaching their prey and at the same time, they also serve as a chemical barrier by repelling mosquitoes and killing them. Recently, an increase in resistance of malaria vectors to insecticides, particularly to pyrethroids which are widely used in insecticide-treated nets has threatened the bio efficacy of these LLINs. Anticipating the possible failure of current control tools due to resistance, WHO has encouraged the industry to develop new types of LLINs. Landcent group has embraced this call by WHO and have committed its resources towards the development of new types of LLINs.

Previous studies reveal that carbamate treated bednets worked better than pyrethroid treated bednets in hut trials in pyrethroid resistant areas.
