Drug-resistant malaria advances in Mekong :: Science
« on: Oct 12, 2017    11:01:44 PM »
Some malaria researchers say their worst fears are coming true. A malaria parasite resistant to resistant to a first-line artemisinin combination therapy has rapidly made its way in an arc from western Cambodia, through northeastern Thailand, to southern Laos; now, it has landed in southern Vietnam, where it is causing alarming rates of treatment failure. That's not only bad news for the Greater Mekong subregion, the researchers say, but should this bug spread to Africa, where more than 90% of malaria deaths occur, the consequences could be disastrous.
