Figure 1. In vitro drug survival assays for Plasmodium falciparum. Representative curves for kinetic recrudescence of synchronous ring-stage parasites from F32-ART5 lineage (dashed lines) and F32-TEM lineage (solid lines) parasite cultures after a 48-h exposure to A) 11 μmol/L artemisinin; B) 62 nmol/L amodiaquine; C) 241 nmol/L mefloquine; D) 4 μmol/L pyrimethamine; and E) 7 μmol/L atovaquone. Differences in recrudescence between both parasite lines are indicated by doubled-headed arrows.
