Mike Turner said: “Snakebite is – or should be – a treatable condition. With access to the right antivenom there is a high chance of survival,” External link

Nathan Rose told: “These diseases potentially could impact half the people on the planet because the mosquitoes that transmit them are found so ubiquitously and their range will only spread in coming years as climate change progresses,” External link

Nathan Rose said: “All of the female offspring of those matings will die,” External link

Nathan Rose explained: “It actually stops the female mosquito from developing past the very early larval stages of development,” External link

Nathan Rose said: “By doing this, we can actually pretty quickly reduce the population of these disease-transmitting mosquitoes in the wild,” External link

Nathan Rose said: “That allows us to produce these mosquitoes in the production facility,” “But in the wild, they won’t have access to this antidote, so they won’t be able to survive” External link

Nathan Rose added: “The mosquitoes have now developed the ability to survive even when those insecticides are sprayed, and so that means the number of tools available to control these mosquitoes is becoming ever more limited,” External link

Nathan Rose said: “We’re developing the same self-limiting technology in Anopheles that can be used in Central America and also in South Asia, [specifically] in India,” External link

Nathan Rose added: “So those are quite significant challenges,” External link

Tony Nolan added: “We have shown in the lab that this can lead to invasion of the population and its complete crash very rapidly, even starting from a very low number of released gene-drive mosquitoes,” External link

Tony Nolan said: “In the meantime, there are many studies… [into] basic mosquito behaviour and distribution in the wild [being carried out] in order to better understand how this type of technology might work and how best to employ it,” External link

Kevin Esvelt told: “Because they spread indefinitely, self-propagating gene-drive systems are much more efficient, but our models predict they will spread on their own if just a handful of carrier organisms escape or are deliberately introduced,” External link

Kevin Esvelt added: “Perhaps most importantly, it would set a dangerous precedent for the unilateral use of biotechnologies anticipated to spread across borders without securing permission. As a general rule, scientists should never build constructs that could plausibly spread uncontrollably without the explicit support of all nations that would be affected” External link

Nathan Rose said: “I think it’s one part of a toolkit that needs to have several different tools in it,” “It’s very important to try and get rid of the mosquitoes, but it’s also really important to try and have drugs that you can actually use to deal with the diseases directly where you do have transmission… No single tool is going to be a silver bullet that deals with everything” External link

Kevin Esvelt added: “Eradicating malaria will require a coordinated effort involving all affected countries, all current prevention and treatment methods and at least one powerful new technology. That technology could be a highly protective and long-lasting vaccine, a long-lasting antimalarial drug or a series of gene-drive systems to alter or suppress the primary mosquito vectors. Vaccine and drug development have proven difficult, whereas functional gene-drive systems have been constructed in malarial mosquitoes” External link
