General objective To evaluate the efficacy of DHA-PPQ in patients with uncomplicated falciparum malaria in a rural area of Central Vietnam, and to assess the in vitro susceptibility of P.falciparum isolates to DHA and PPQ.
- To measure the parasite clearance time in falciparum malaria patients treated with DHA-PPQ.
- To determine the efficacy of DHA-PPQ at day 42 post-treatment.
- To assess the in vitro susceptibility of P.falciparum isolates towards DHA and PPQ in Quang Nam Province.
- To compare genetic profiles of P.falciparum isolates with delayed and those with normal clearance times in order to identify potential markers of resistance;
