New Partnerships The Development of ASMQ - FDC

Abstract

This presentation describes the new antimalarial formulation ASMQ (artesunate + mefloquine fixed-dose combination), including its ease of use, efficacy and tolerability, and clinical studies of its use in India and Brazil. In summary, it is efficacious, safe and well-tolerated, has a favourable pharmacokinetic profile and a simple regimen, and is a durable combination and a convenient coformulation with a 3-year shelf life. On the other hand it is not recommended in severe malaria, its use in pregnancy needs further study, and it shows cumulative toxicity with repeated dosing.
