> Here's a possibly relevant side point to the debate over the bombing of
> the pharmaceutical plant in Sudan. A physician friend of mine who is an
> expert in infectious diseases says, "choloroquine doesn't work any more
> in most parts of the world (including Sudan) for P. falciparum, the
> deadliest malarial parasite."
> If the plant was producing it, cholroquine may not have been a major
> life-saver. So its cheapness on the international market may be of
> little help to Sudan. Only a more expensive drug (which the plant
> apparently wasn't producing) may be helpful against the deadlier forms
> of malaria.
