Signs of malaria resistance

Signs of malaria resistance | National news | The Phnom Penh Post - Cambodia's Newspaper of Record: "REGIONAL authorities are investigating whether signs of resistance to antimalarial medication could be an indication of a larger problem, according to the World Health Organisation.

Steven Bjorge, the team leader on malaria with the WHO in Cambodia, said health officials in southern Vietnam are testing to see whether resistance to artemisinin, the most effective treatment for malaria currently available, has developed in a border area near Snoul in Kratie province. Other reports have surfaced in recent months of signs of resistance along the Thailand-Myanmar border."
