Las autoridades de salud de Brasil dieron, esta semana, el permiso para que la compañía británica Oxitec, especializada en  biotecnología, propagara millones de mosquitos genéticamente modificados que se encargarán de reducir la propagación del mosquito aedes aegypti, que propaga la enfermedad del dengue.

Este experimento se llevará a cabo en la ciudad de Piracicaba, en el Estado de San Pablo, donde habitan alrededor  de 44 035 340 personas según el censo de IBGE de 2010.

En su totalidad, estos moquitos mutantes son machos y portan un gen que se transmiten a las larvas y las matan antes que puedan reproducirse.

La revista PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases publicó en un estudio que la aplicación de este plan reduciría significativamente la tasa de reproducción del mosquito transmisor del dengue.

Se escogió Piracicaba como la ciudad para la experiencia por ser la que más reportes de casos de dengue reporta anualmente en Brasil.

Actualmente, Oxitec está esperando la autorización de la Agencia de Alimentos y Medicamentos de los Estados Unidos para realizar pruebas semejantes en Florida.
