Summary: argument for delayed evaluation of combination therapy
because: (1) there are reports of high levels of CQ or
antifolate drug resistance [5]; and (2) urbanization, by
reducing overall parasite circulation, could permit
genetic drift, thus fixing resistant alleles among closed
populations in Africa (as has happened in Southeast
Asia and South America) [6]. We urgently need standar-
dized population-based longitudinal studies of P. falci-
parum drug resistance to implement accurate drug
policies in Africa.
