2 of 36 Plasmodium falciparum infections were resistant (RII and RIII) in vivo to the combination of mefloquine (M) and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) in Jayapura, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Expected absorption of mefloquine and pyrimethamine was confirmed in the one resistant patient from whom sera were available, and the isolate from this patient was(More)
