Scientists identify genetic marker for resistance to malaria treatment in Cambodia

Posted 08/11/2016

Global efforts to try and treat and eradicate malaria are being hampered by increasing resistance of the disease-causing Plasmodium parasite to anti-malarial drugs.

A new study led by researchers from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics has identified genetic markers linked to resistance to the anti-malarial drug piperaquine. This new information can be used as a tool to identify areas where resistance is emerging and where current treatment strategies are likely to fail.
