    About Oxitec (www.oxitec.com)

    Oxitec is a British company pioneering a new approach to combating dengue fever. The Oxitec solution harnesses advanced genetics to create 'sterile' male insects to combat insect-borne diseases. Dengue fever, which at conservative estimate infects at least 50 million people a year, is a growing problem in Panama and across the globe. Currently, mosquito populations are controlled by chemical pesticides which are indiscriminate and have not stopped the spread of the disease. The Oxitec approach has the potential to make a major contribution to global health by combating insects responsible for serious diseases such as dengue fever.
