IVCC has announced that, resulting from a collaboration with BASF and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, a new type of long-lasting insecticide treated bednet (LLIN) has received a recommendation for use by the World Health Organisation.

This new LLIN, Interceptor® G2, combines the current pyrethroid class of public health insecticide used in bednets across malaria endemic countries, with a repurposed insecticide from agriculture called Chlorfenapyr.  The successful mixture of these two active ingredients coated on a LLIN represents a major advance in the mission to overcome insecticide resistance.  Chlorfenapyr has a different mode of action from current WHO recommended public health insecticides.
