Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance was first detected in Cambodia in the early sixties. Treatment with chloroquine was abandoned 20 years ago. In vitro chloroquine sensitivity monitoring indicates that all eastern Cambodian isolates were sensitive to chloroquine, whereas most isolates collected from western provinces displayed reduced(More)
Population coverage of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs) in Africa falls well below the Abuja target of 60% while coverage levels achieved during vaccination campaigns in the same populations typically exceed 90%. Household (HH) cost of ITNs is an important barrier to their uptake. We investigated the coverage, equity and cost of linking distribution of free(More)

Pharmacological treatment of patients suffering from sporadic late-onset dementia of Alzheimer type (DAT) is controversely discussed, omitting the fact that this age-related most frequently occurring DAT form is based on a heterogenous pathogenesis, but forms a rather uniform clinical phenotype. Furthermore, sporadic late-onset DAT is influenced in two(More)
The dengue virus molecular typing method described by Lanciotti and coworkers (R. S. Lanciotti, C. H. Calisher, D. J. Gubler, G. J. Chang, and A. Vance-Vorndam, J. Clin. Microbiol. 30:545-551, 1992) is used worldwide for diagnosis and surveillance. However, it failed to detect DENV-1 variants in Cambodia due to a point mutation. We describe an improvement(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the cost-effectiveness (CE) of annual targeted larviciding campaigns from 2001 to 2005 against the dengue vector Aedes aegypti in two urban areas of Cambodia with a population of 2.9 million people. METHODS The intervention under analysis consisted of annual larviciding campaigns targeting medium to large water storage containers in(More)
Recent studies have shown that Plasmodium falciparum malaria parasites in Pailin province, along the border between Thailand and Cambodia, have become resistant to artemisinin derivatives. To better define the epidemiology of P. falciparum populations and to assess the risk of the possible spread of these parasites outside Pailin, a new epidemiological tool(More)
In an expansion of the first Mekong Malaria monograph published in 1999, this second monograph updates the malaria database in the countries comprising the Mekong region of Southeast Asia. The update adds another 3 years' information to cover cumulative data from the 6 Mekong countries (Cambodia, China/Yunnan, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, Viet Nam) for the(More)
OBJECTIVES The Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) approach and new clinical treatment guidelines to control malaria among children less than 5 years old were introduced recently in Cambodia. This study was conducted to finalize the malaria part of the national IMCI fever chart. METHODS A total of 323 sick children 2-59 months old were(More)
