From: Artemether-lumefantrine to treat malaria in pregnancy is associated with reduced placental haemozoin deposition compared to quinine in a randomized controlled trial

  1. Haemozoin presence stratified by month of last Plasmodium falciparum episode prior to delivery. Women who experienced re-infection are included in the month that re-infection occurred.
