Molecular Evidence of Drug Resistance in Asymptomatic Malaria Infections, Myanmar, 2015

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

Artemisinin resistance containment in Myanmar was initiated in 2011 after artemisinin-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria was reported. Molecular evidence suggests that asymptomatic malaria infections harboring drug resistance genes are present among residents of the Myanmar artemisinin resistance containment zone. This evidence supports efforts to eliminate these hidden infections.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 1: The study site, Shwegyin Township, Myanmar, where molecular evidence of drug resistance in asymptomatic malaria infections was obtained. As of 2014, Myanmar artemisinin resistance containment areas were divided into Tier I (52 townships) and Tier II (all remaining townships).

Mentions: As of 2014, the Tier I area of artemisinin resistance in Myanmar was composed of 52 townships; the remaining regions were designated as Tier II. In January 2015, we conducted a cross-sectional study of one of the Tier I areas of the MARC, Shwegyin Township (22°20′0″N, 95°56′0″E) (Figure; Technical Appendix).
