Parasite clearance after treatment with an artemisinin monotherapy or ACT
This Study Group characterises parasite clearance stratified by location, treatment and time and to find optimal restricted sampling schemes for clearance estimation and provides baseline information on parasite clearance.
The latest study, ‘Baseline parasite clearance data in uncomplicated falciparum malaria after treatment with an artemisinin derivative alone or in combination’, has been submitted to Malaria Journal and is currently under review.
