Abstract Background Gametocytes are the sexual stages ensuring continuity of the development cycle of the parasite, as well as its transmission to humans. The efficacy of artemisinin-based anti-malarials against asexual stages of Plasmodium has been reported in Madagascar, but their effects on gametocytes are not well documented. The present study aims to determine the emergence of gametocyte and gametocyte clearance after artesunate-amodiaquine (ASAQ) or artemether-lumefantrine (AL) treatment in children with uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria in...
