Relative chloroquine resistance of P falciparum in Zambia



Relative chloroquine resistance of P falciparum in Zambia



British Medical Journal 1(6128): 1669-1670



In Zambia, a 2-year-old child with Plasmodium falciparum infection was not cured by 12 days of oral treatment with chloroquine at a dose of 5 to 10 mg/kg/day (which is more than adequate by WHO criteria). Haskins's test showed that the drug was absorbed.
