Molecular assessment of Plasmodium falciparum resistance to antimalarial drugs in Papua New Guinea using an extended ligase detection reaction fluorescent microsphere assay.

Abstract

Surveillance for Plasmodium falciparum drug resistance mutations is becoming an established tool for assessing antimalarial treatment effectiveness. We used an extended version of a high-throughput post-PCR multiplexed ligase detection reaction fluorescent microsphere assay (LDR-FMA) to detect single-nucleotide P. falciparum drug resistance polymorphisms in… (More)
