Artemisinin resistance and stage dependency of parasite clearance in Falciparum malaria

Abstract:
Background Artemisinin resistance in falciparum malaria is associated with kelch13 propeller mutations, reduced ring stage parasite killing, and, consequently, slow parasite clearance. We assessed how parasite age affects parasite clearance in artemisinin resistance. Methods Developmental stages of Plasmodium falciparum parasites on blood films performed at hospital admission and their kelch13 genotypes were assessed for 816 patients enrolled in a multinatio...
