A Controlled Human Malaria Infection Model Comparing Low-Dose Piperaquine and Sulfadoxine-Pyrimethamine to Induce Infectious Male and Female P. Falciparum Gametocytes

Efforts to reduce transmission and eliminate malaria require an understanding of biology and transmission. A model to induce gametocytes to understand their dynamics and evaluate transmission-blocking interventions is currently unavailable. Here, we explore the use of the Controlled Human Malaria Infection model to induce gametocyte carriage with antimalarial drug regimens.
