Abstract

To assess the possible impact of insecticide treated curtains (ITC) on the composition of a Plasmodium falciparum population in a rural area of Burkina Faso, blood samples were collected during the rainy season of 1997 from 226 children aged 3-6 years, from 4 villages equipped with ITC and 2 control villages without ITC. The analysis of fragment lengths of 3 highly polymorphic P. falciparum genes (msp-1, msp-2 and glurp) revealed a maximum number of 3 alleles per infected person for each gene. The mean number of clones per infected person was similar in villages with and without ITC.
