Abstract Quinine (at least four doses given at intervals of eight to 12 hours) followed by a single dose of sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (Fansidar) is the most effective treatment of chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria. This regimen cured 96% of patients (302 out of 314) with an average initial parasite count of 90 X 10-9/1.
