A new insecticide active ingredient being developed by Syngenta with a novel mode of action to address resistance in the control of malaria vectors is entering the early development phase. The ai comes from a collaboration between Syngenta and the UK-based not-for-profit organisation, Innovative Vector Control Consortium (IVCC – Liverpool, Merseyside), to identify and develop new lead areas of novel chemistry suitable for the control of vector mosquitoes. Syngenta and IVCC entered into the collaboration in 2009. In 2015, they highlighted the new ai.
Syngenta and IVCC previously launched the mosquito-control product, Actellic 300CS (pirimiphos-methyl). “With Actellic 300CS we are achieving remarkable results, but we are fully aware that new solutions are required for sustainable vector control,” says chief executive officer Erik Fyrwald. “Our joint effort with IVCC is to discover and develop these solutions which can help to radically transform public health in regions where people live with the daily threat of malaria and to eradicate malaria by 2040,” he adds.
