The AS-ART clone resistant to artemisinin was obtained from a clone known as AS-30CQ which tolerated 300 mg/kg/day of artemisinin [24] obtained by serial passages in the presence of increasing subcurative doses of artemisinin [23, 24]; this parasitic line was cloned and named AS-ART [24].
Treatment of AS-3CQ parasites with a subcurative single dose of chloroquine and a subcurative single dose of curcumin induced an increase in the expression of all three genes (Figures 7 and 8) specially at 6 h and 12 h after drug exposure, compared to the untreated sample collected at time point 0 h (P = 0.002).
The infected animals were given subcurative treatment with diminazene aceturate (DA) (Veriben, Sanofi, Paris, France) at 5 mg/kg body weight (bwt) via intramuscular injection for three consecutive days, starting 28 days after infection (28 dpi).
