  1. Hexahydroquinolines are antimalarial candidates with potent blood-stage and transmission-blocking activity. 
  2. Globally prevalent PfMDR1 mutations modulate Plasmodium falciparum susceptibility to artemisinin-based combination therapies. 
  3. Complex Polymorphisms in the Plasmodium falciparum Multidrug Resistance Protein 2 Gene and Its Contribution to Antimalarial Response. 
  4. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in Plasmodium falciparum V type H+ pyrophosphatase gene (pfvp2) and their associations with pfcrt and pfmdr1 polymorphisms. 
  5. Pharmacogenomics of , , , , , and in Vietnam. 
  6. Polymorphism of Antimalaria Drug Metabolizing, Nuclear Receptor, and Drug Transport Genes among Malaria Patients in Zanzibar, East Africa. 
  7. Multiplex PCR-RFLP methods for pfcrt, pfmdr1 and pfdhfr mutations in Plasmodium falciparum. 
  8. Amodiaquine resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria in vivo is associated with selection of pfcrt 76T and pfmdr1 86Y.
