Within-host competition can delay evolution of drug resistance in malaria

Fig 3

Within-host dynamics of two strains (sensitive and resistant, shown in blue and red, respectively) in a naïve host with no antimalarial drug treatment.

Strains are introduced either 20 days apart (A, C) or 100 days apart (B, D), with either high cross-reactivity (A-B) or low cross-reactivity between the two strains (C-D). RBC, red blood cell.
