C mutation was most frequently detected in both suspected relapsed group (SR) and non-relapsed group (NR), reaching 85.2% (75/88) and 76.0% (114/150), respectively. The c.886C > T mutation was most closely related to the recurrence of vivax malaria (OR = 2.167, 95% CI 1.104–4.252, P < 0.05). Among the 23 haplotypes (Hap_1 ~ Hap_23), Hap_3 was non-mutant, and the sequence structure of Hap_9 was the most complicated one. Five star alleles, including *1, *2, *4, *10 and *39, were confirmed by comparison, and CYP2D6*10 allele accounted for the largest percentage (45.4%, 108/238). The frequency of CYP2D6*2 allele in the SR group was significantly higher than that in the NR group (Χ2 = 16.177, P < 0.05). Of the defined 24 genotypes, 8 genotypes, including *4/*4, *4/*o, *2/*39, *39/*m, *39/*x, *1/*r, *1/*n, and *v/*10, were detected only in the SR group. Conclusion Mutation of CYP2D6*10 allele accounts for the highest proportion of vivax malaria cases in Yunnan Province. The mutations of c. 886C > T and CYP2D6*2 allele, which correspond to impaired PQ metabolizer phenotype, are most closely related to the relapse of vivax malaria. In addition, the genotype *4/*4 with null CYP2D6 enzyme function was only detected in the SR group. These results reveal the risk of defected CYP2D6 enzyme activity that diminishes the therapeutic effect of primaquine on vivax malaria."/>

Altmetric calculates a score based on the online attention an article receives. Each coloured thread in the circle represents a different type of online attention. The number in the centre is the Altmetric score. Social media and mainstream news media are the main sources that calculate the score. Reference managers such as Mendeley are also tracked but do not contribute to the score. Older articles often score higher because they have had more time to get noticed. To account for this, Altmetric has included the context data for other articles of a similar age.
