Sensitivity and specificity of molecular methods for detecting markers of antimalarial drug resistance in clinical samples of Plasmodium falciparum: a systematic review

Abstract:

Background Each year infection with Plasmodium causes millions of clinical cases of malaria, and hundreds of thousands of deaths. Resistance to different antimalarial medications continues to develop and spread, threatening effective prophylaxis and treatment. Monitoring of resistance is required to inform health policy and preserve effective antimalarials; molecular methods can be used to determine likely parasite susceptibility. There is no consensus on the most a...
