In 2009, Scott L. O'Neill, a professor at Monash University in Australia, and his colleagues reported that a type of Wolbachia normally found in flies could also infect mosquitoes - and that once in residence, the bacterium blocked dengue viruses from attacking its new hosts.
"It was just curiosity-based work, totally serendipity," Dr. O'Neill said. "This is to get the gold-standard evidence," Dr. O'Neill said. "We're thinking that there will be a very big effect." When Zika broke out in Brazil last year, a number of researchers - including Dr. O'Neill - suspected that Wolbachia might work against that virus, too, since Zika and dengue are closely related. Dr. O'Neill, who was not involved in the new experiment, said two other unpublished studies were yielding similar results.

The Eliminate Dengue research project, led by Professor Scott O'Neill from Monash University, hopes to begin a citywide trial of the Wolbachia dengue control method in Townsville by the end of the year.
Professor O'Neill, Dean of the Monash Faculty of Science, said they had already received great support from the Townsville community. "This will be the first-large scale trial of our method and we are committed to being open and responsive with the Townsville community about our research. The community reference group will help us ensure we are meeting this commitment," Professor O'Neill said.
