A 3-day treatment with 25mg Chloroquine per Kg body weight alone or in combination with chlorpheniramine maleate was given orally to 17 semi-immune Nigerian children with plasmodium falciparum parasitaemia.
Treatment with chloroquine – chlorpheniramine combination resulted in a shorter parasite clearance time (2.0 ± 0.5 d) and a higher cure rate .. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
