Keith in Norwich asked:
Can you ask if the people working with mosquitoes (the news story Kat covered earlier) had considered using the bacteria in their guts to develop a protection for humans or whatever?
We put this to Kat Arney:
Kat - It is an interesting question. I think this works to a very early stage. The protection from the bacteria for the mosquitoes is really due to their immune system rather than anything special about the bacteria themselves as far as I know at the moment. So itís certainly an interesting question and I donít think it would work if it infected humans with bacteria either but certainly an interesting question, thanks Keith.
