Atovaquone-Proguanil combination for malaria treatment: a systematic review with meta-analysis
Oduro, Abraham , Rexford
Background: increasing spread of drug resistance among Plasmodium falciparum poses a serious threat to malaria treatment. The situation is complicated not only because new drugs are expensive and slow in development but also because they must be effective, preferably have a novel method of action, with an acceptable level of adverse effects, and be deployed in such a way as to prolong their use.
