British health officials come across drug-resistant malaria cases

A newly released study has revealed that drug-resistant malaria is turning up in the U.K., indicating that malaria parasites have increasingly been adapting to existing drugs.

The recommended treatment for malaria is an artemisinin-based drug combination known as Artemether-lumefantrine. Taking a few pills over the course of 3-4 days kills the malaria parasites, but the new study warned that the parasites are becoming resistant to these drugs.
