Figure 6

Symmetric movement - effect of drug half-life for 100 days stay. Effect of IPT treatments with drugs with different half-lives, SP or CPG-DDS, on the increase percentage of R1 relative to RS in both a low (Graph (a)) and high (Graph (b)) transmission setting, when symmetric movement between equally sized populations (m = p12/ p21 = 1, p12 = 0. 01) is considered. The parameter p12 is the rate of movement from the high transmission area to the low transmission area, and p21 is the rate from the low transmission area to the high transmission area, m= N H N L = p 21 p 12 , is the ratio of the high transmission population to that of low transmission population.
