Abstract

To evaluate the features and risk factors associated with recrudescent infections that arose following artemisinin-based combination drug treatment of the primary infections. Methods The clinical features and risk factors associated with subsequent recrudescence of primary Plasmodium falciparum infections were evaluated in 37 of 877 children following artesunate or artemisinin-based combination treatments (ACTs). Recrudescence was determined by polymerase chain reaction.
