BackgroundIn Iran, co-infections of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum are common and P. vivax infections are often exposed to sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP). In the present study, the frequency distribution of mutations associated to SP resistance was investigated in pvdhfr and pvdhps genes from field isolates.MethodsClinical isolates of P. vivax were collected in two different malaria endemic regions in northern and south-eastern Iran, between 2001 and 2006. All 189 collected… CONTINUE READING
