Since 1995, chloroquine is no longer used in French Guiana to treat P. falciparum malaria as it became resistant. The Institut Pasteur in French Guiana described for the first time, a reversal of this resistance in the parasite due to the acquisition of a new mutation. Published in the scientific journal PNAS, this finding is significant in optimizing the use and design of antimalarial drugs.
