A strain of isolated in the Republic of Panama in March 1972 was transferred to the Unit on Human Malaria (LPD, NIAID, NIH) in Atlanta, Georgia. Studies in eight non-immune prisoner volunteers demonstrated that infections with this Panama II strain of recrudesced following treatment with chloroquine 1.5 g (base), amodiaquine 1.4 g (base), chlorguanide 1.3 g (base) over 5 days, or quinine 11.34 g (base) over 7 days. Parasitemia increased during therapy with pyrimethamine 150 mg over 3 days. Infections were cured by treatment with quinine for 10 days (16.2 g base) or by combination therapy with sulfadiazine (10 g in 5 days) plus pyrimethamine (150 mg in 3 days).
