Erratum to: An optimised age-based dosing regimen for single low-dose primaquine for blocking malaria transmission in Cambodia

Erratum

After publication of the original article [1], it came to the authors’ attention that there was an error in the PQ pharmacokinetics sub-section of the Background section. The following sentence is affected:

“There is no PK interaction between PQ and either artesunate-pyronaridine [76] or mefloquine [69, 77]; no PK interaction data exist for PQ and artemether-lumefantrine (AL).”

This sentence should have read as follows:

“AS pyronaridine increased PQ exposure by 15% without affecting significantly cPQ exposure [76]. There is no PK interaction between PQ and mefloquine [69, 77]; no PK interaction data exist for PQ and artemether-lumefantrine (AL).”
