Abstract

Summary

In a study of the curative activity of primaquine administered during long-term latency of Korean malaria, 294 soldiers, exposed to infection in the summer of 1951 were treated early in April, 1952 with 15 mg. of primaquine daily for 14 days. A control group of 331 men was given a placebo. None of the men treated with primaquine developed malaria during the next six months; 17.5 per cent of those given the placebo did develop malaria during the same period.
