Artemisinin resistance without pfkelch13 mutations in Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Cambodia.

Abstract:

Background

Artemisinin resistance is associated with delayed parasite clearance half-life in vivo and correlates with ring-stage survival under dihydroartemisinin in vitro. Both phenotypes are associated with mutations in the PF3D7_1343700 pfkelch13 gene. Recent spread of artemisinin resistance and emerging piperaquine resistance in Southeast Asia show that artemisinin combination therapy, such as dihydroartemisinin–piperaquine, are losing clinical effectiveness, prompting invest...
