Individual parasite clearance half-lives in relation to presenting parasite density (shown on a log scale per µL) in 6975 patients with acute uncomplicated falciparum malaria treated with an artemisinin derivative (from reference [32]). The upper panel shows data from areas unaffected by artemisinin resistance, the lower panel shows data from areas where artemisinin resistance is prevalent. There is no evidence for density dependence in parasite clearance rates
