The same clinical team conducts clinical studies on the treatment of uncomplicated malaria in the hospital inpatient wards. In addition, James Watson and Atthanee Jeeyapant work with Nick White analysing and modelling pathological responses in both uncomplicated and severe malaria, haematological responses in G6PD deficiency, vivax relapse, and anti-infective drug pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics data.
