Efficacies of mefloquine alone and of artesunate followed by mefloquine, for the treatment of uncomplicated, Plasmodium falciparum malaria in eastern Sudan



Efficacies of mefloquine alone and of artesunate followed by mefloquine, for the treatment of uncomplicated, Plasmodium falciparum malaria in eastern Sudan



Annals of Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 99(2): 111-117



In late 2003, the efficacies of mefloquine monotherapy and of an artesunate-mefloquine combination, for the oral treatment of uncomplicated, Plasmodium falciparum malaria, were investigated and compared in New Halfa, in eastern Sudan. Of the patients who completed the 28 days of follow-up, 40 were treated only with single-dose mefloquine (at a dose of 25 mg/kg), and 38 with artesunate (at 4 mg/kg. day) for 3 days followed by single-dose mefloquine (at 15 mg/kg), given on the third day.
