Abstract

The effect of various dosages of mefloquine hydrochloride (WR 142,490) and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine in the suppression of malaria infections was studied in an area of northeastern Thailand highly endemic for both chloroquine-resistant and for . Both preparations, in all regimens studied, were effective in greatly reducing the incidence of falciparum infections. Mefloquine was more active in preventing vivax parasitemia than sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine; however, this combination remains the commercially available regimen of choice where both parasites occur and is resistant to chloroquine.
