WWARN develops tools that support the standardised monitoring of antimalarial medicine efficacy and allow comparisons of results over time and space. This information is critical to enable the detection of early changes in Plasmodium falciparum sensitivity to artemisinin therapies and support fast and effective updates to treatment guidelines when needed.

Tools to analyse resistance

  • The Parasite Clearance Estimator - this online tool provides you with a consistent, reliable and accurate method to estimate malaria parasite clearance – a key indicator of antimalarial drug resistance
  • The In Vitro Analysis and Reporting Tool (IVART) - an online application for standardised analysis of in vitro drug susceptibility data, allowing large data sets to be analysed within minutes. It allows you to use in vitro data more uniformly to validate molecular markers of resistance and interpret treatment failure in clinical trials
