Effects of different antimalarial drugs on gametocyte carriage in P. vivax malaria.

Abstract:

The gametocytocidal and asexual stage activities of eight antimalarial and eight antibiotic-containing regimens were evaluated in 349 adult patients with P. vivax malaria. Gametocytemia was found in 63% of patients (22% before and 41% after treatment). The median (range) gametocyte clearance time was 24 hours (range, 2-504 hours) and correlated with asexual parasite clearance time (r = 0.52, P < 0.001). Gametocytemia in vivax malaria was more common in patients with admission parasitemia &...
