Abstract

Anti-malarial drug resistance continues to be a leading threat to ongoing malaria control efforts and calls for continued monitoring of the efficacy of these drugs in order to inform national anti-malarial drug policy decision-making. This study assessed the therapeutic efficacy and safety of artemether-lumefantrine (AL)(Coartem®) for the treatment of uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in two sentinel high malaria transmission districts in the Eastern Province of Zambia in persons aged six months and above, excluding women aged 12 to 18 years.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 19 November 2014.
All research outputs
#2,173,373
of 4,527,185 outputs
Outputs from Malaria Journal
#991
of 1,727 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#61,325
of 136,935 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Malaria Journal
#47
of 92 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,527,185 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,727 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.7. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 136,935 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 50% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 92 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
