Note: Reinfections were excluded from the analysis after profiling pretreatment and recurrent parasites based on the polymorphic Plasmodium falciparum  msp  2 antigen. ACPR: adequate clinical parasitological response, ETF: early treatment failure, LCF: late clinical failure, LPF: late parasitological failure, and CI: confidence interval. Early treatment failures were noted in two patients randomized to receive ASAQ coblister. It was unclear if this was due to poor drug absorption or real treatment failures.
