Martin, Rowena; Shafik, Sarah; Richards, Sashika

Description

The deployment of artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) has been, and continues to be, integral to reducing the number of malaria cases and deaths. However, their efficacy is being increasingly jeopardized by the emergence and spread of parasites that are resistant (or partially resistant) to the artemisinin derivatives and to their partner drugs, with the efficacy of the latter being especially crucial for treatment success. A detailed understanding of the genetic determinants of...[Show more]
