Safety of Genetically Modified Mosquitoes—Reply

JAMA. 2011;305(20):2069-2070. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.677

In Reply: The article by Fang1 presented a theory envisaging a “world without mosquitoes,” which is both unlikely and could cause uncertain ecological effects. What is more likely, and helpful, is the genetic modification of mosquitoes that are vectors of human disease, as well as the development of international guidelines to address the use of these organisms.
