Four years’ monitoring of in vitro sensitivity and candidate molecular markers of resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to artesunate-mefloquine combination in the Thai-Myanmar border

Abstract

The decline in efficacy of artesunate (AS) and mefloquine (MQ) is now the major concern in areas along the Thai-Cambodian and Thai-Myanmar borders. The correlation between polymorphisms of pfatp6, pfcrt, pfmdr1 and pfmrp1 genes and in vitro sensitivity of Plasmodium falciparum isolates to the artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) components AS and MQ… (More)
