    Drug-resistant P. falciparum. Chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum first developed independently in three to four areas in Southeast Asia, Oceania, and South America in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Since then, chloroquine resistance has spread to nearly all areas of the world where falciparum malaria is transmitted. Among 49 patients with falciparum malaria, we found neither parasites carrying haplotypes associated with chloroquine resistance nor instances of chloroquine treatment failure. Continued vigilance to detect emergence of chloroquine resistance is needed. Travelers who reject the advice to take prophylaxis, who choose a suboptimal drug regimen such as chloroquine in an area with chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum, or who require a less-than-optimal drug regimen for medical reasons, are at increased risk for acquiring malaria and then needing prompt treatment while overseas.
