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

Fig 4

Within-host dynamics of drug-sensitive and drug-resistant strains (blue and red, respectively) in single infections (A) and in a mixed infection (B). The resistant strain is assumed to have a 10% reduction in growth rate, compared to the sensitive strain. Dynamics shown are for naïve hosts with no antimalarial drug treatment. RBC, red blood cell.
