  1. Pi Bansa S, Osei J, Kartey Attipoe W, Elhassan E, Agyemang D, Otoo S, et al. Assessing the Presence of Wuchereria bancrofti Infections in Vectors Using Xenomonitoring in Lymphatic Filariasis Endemic Districts in Ghana. Trop Med Infect Dis. 2019;4: pubmed publisher
    ..We conclude that whilst samples extracted with Trizol reagent did not show any positives, molecular methods should still be considered for monitoring and surveillance of lymphatic filariasis transmission. ..
  2. de Souza D, Ansumana R, Sessay S, Conteh A, Koudou B, Rebollo M, et al. The impact of residual infections on Anopheles-transmitted Wuchereria bancrofti after multiple rounds of mass drug administration. Parasit Vectors. 2015;8:488 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, we propose a modification of the WHO recommendation for the timing of sentinel and spot-check site assessments in national programs. ..
  3. Kouassi B, de Souza D, Goepogui A, Narh C, King S, Mamadou B, et al. Assessing the presence of Wuchereria bancrofti in vector and human populations from urban communities in Conakry, Guinea. Parasit Vectors. 2015;8:492 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore, rigorous surveillance is still warranted so that LF transmission in Conakry would be identified rapidly and adequate responses being implemented. ..
  4. Edi C, Koudou B, Bellai L, Adja A, Chouaibou M, Bonfoh B, et al. Long-term trends in Anopheles gambiae insecticide resistance in Côte d'Ivoire. Parasit Vectors. 2014;7:500 pubmed publisher
    ..In the light of such spatio-temporal dynamics, regular, systematic and spatially-expanded monitoring is warranted to provide accurate information on insecticide resistance for control programme management. ..
  5. Sadia Kacou C, Alou L, Edi A, Yobo C, Adja M, Ouattara A, et al. Presence of susceptible wild strains of Anopheles gambiae in a large industrial palm farm located in Aboisso, South-Eastern of Côte d'Ivoire. Malar J. 2017;16:157 pubmed publisher
    ..These results should help the National Malaria Control Programme when designing strategies for vector control in palm oil areas of Côte d'Ivoire. ..
