    Effects
    of artesunate-mefloquine
    combination on incidence
    of Plasmodium falciparum malaria
    and mefloquine
    resistance
    in Western Thailand: a prospective study.

    Lancet,
    vol.356, July 22, 2000, p. 297-302.



    Morbidity
    and mortality from lasmodium
    falciparum malaria is increasing in tropical areas. This increase results partly from the spread of drug resistance.

     

    In this area of Thailand, early diagnosis and
    treatment with combined artesunate and mefloquine
    has reduced the incidence of plasmodium falciparum
    malaria and halted progression of mefloquine
    resistance.Authors
    recommend that antimalarial drugs should be combined
    with artemisinin or a derivative to protect them
    against resistance.
