Objective  In China, Chloroquine (CQ) and sulfadoxine–pyrimethamine (SP) were abandoned for the treatment of falciparum malaria 20 years ago due to resistance. Subsequent field studies showed a trend of declining CQ and SP resistance in the country. The main purpose of this study was to analyse the molecular markers of antimalarial resistance and thereby to assess the possibility of reintroduction of CQ or SP for falciparum malaria treatment.
