Impact of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention of Sulphadoxine-Pyrimethamine Plus Amodiaquine on Molecular Markers Resistance of Plasmodium falciparum Malaria: a Review in West Africa
The study discuss the potential impact of seasonal malaria chemoprevention (SMC) on the cases of malaria, anaemia and molecular markers resistance Plasmodium falciparum malaria; and also review the mechanism of action and the effect on immunity of SMC. SMC using an efficacious drug is likely to substantially reduce cases of clinical malaria in high transmission settings. However, an increase of molecular markers could hamper rolling out SMC as a national policy.
