Personal antimosquito measures plus proguanil for malaria prophylaxis in southern Malaysia



Personal antimosquito measures plus proguanil for malaria prophylaxis in southern Malaysia



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 80(6): 981-982



During the early months of 1985 and 1986, 408 non-immune British soldiers undertook training in the jungles north of Kota Tinggi, in southern Malaysia. In this geographical location, where malaria transmission is now light, a combination of strict personal antimosquito measures plus proguanil 200 mg daily produced effective, safe protection, with only a single case of vivax malaria occurring. Given the limited malaria risk, however, the results of this study should be extrapolated only with caution to other areas of Malaysia.
