Limited dengue virus replication in field-collected Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with Wolbachia

PLoS Negl Trop Dis 8(2): e2688. doi:10.1371/journal.pntd.0002688

This paper shows that virus-blocking is likely to persist in Wolbachia-infected mosquitoes after their release and establishment in wild populations, suggesting that Wolbachia may be a successful strategy for reducing dengue transmission in the field.
