Parasite clearance after malaria therapy: staying a step ahead of drug resistance

The Worldwide Antimalarial Resistance Network have analysed data from 29,493 patients from 84 clinical trials in order to define the nature and determinants of early parasite clearance following artemisinin-based treatment in African populations. In doing so, they lay the foundation for systems intended to enable the earliest possible detection of emerging artemisinin resistance in Africa.
