Maloprim prophylaxis: inadequate Plasmodium vivax cover



Maloprim prophylaxis: inadequate Plasmodium vivax cover



Medical Journal of Australia 1(8): 343-343



Maloprim (dapsone 100 mg + pyrimethamine 12.5 mg) taken weekly is adequate protection against chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria in Papua New Guinea but it may be inadequate against Plasmodium vivax. 2 cases are reported who contracted vivax infection in spite of taking Maloprim.
