    Treatment Strategy Comparison Effect #2

    mean fitness of pathogen population is depressed

    2% res. 10% res.

    resistance evolution is mucheasier for the parasite

    Multiple First-Line Therapies

  • Advantages of Deploying MFT

    1. Delays emergence of resistant strains.

    2. Slows down spread of resistance.

    3. Reduces clinical burden and failed treatments.

  • Biological Cost of Resistance

    Kublin et al (2003)

  • Biological Cost of Resistance

    Kublin et al (2003)

  • Important Parameters

    1. fraction of cases treated2. biological cost of resistance3. length of evaluation period4. EIR5. inbreeding coefficient

  • Surveillance
