Susceptibility of Plasmodium falciparum to chloroquine in tea garden tribes of Assam, India

Susceptibility of Plasmodium falciparum to chloroquine in tea garden tribes of Assam, India

Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 26(2): 228-230

P. falciparum was the predominant parasite ( > 80%) species in malaria ridden tea estates of Assam. A simplified 3 day in vivo test to determine chloroquine sensitivity in tea garden tribes revealed that the majority of the cases (85%) were S/RI, 7% were RI, and 3% were RII and 5% were RIII, respectively. Early case detection and treatment were deemed necessary to reduce morbidity and mortality due to P. falciparum in these tea estates.
