Abstract : It is concluded that resistance of Plasmodium falciparum strains to chloroquine is a well established fact in some areas of Brazil. However, further studies are necessary in order to clarify some still obscure points related to the subject. The results of the preliminary studies on antibody levels are briefly mentioned since the number of observations on the subject needs to be increased to obtain more accurate conclusions. (Author)
