Malaria is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The major factor which has aggravated the situation is the emergence of multidrug resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria. To successfully deal with the problem, thorough understanding of the molecular bases for reduced parasite sensitivity to existing antimalarial drugs is of considerable importance. The objective of this work was to broaden the insight into the molecular mechanisms of resistance of P. falciparum to… CONTINUE READING
