Riassunto: Malaria, the hidden killer, plagued Australian troops in the Pacific theater of World War II so severely that the government commissioned a special research team called the Land Headquarters Medical Research Unit, a team whose story and science are documented in this medical history. Experiments were conducted on more than 800 volunteers and 300 malaria-infected soldiers who were administered the drug atebrin. The rigid atebrin discipline resulted in the lowest malaria levels ever recorded among troops, an astounding accomplishment that makes this breakthrough relevant in the ongoing international fight against malaria.
L'autore: Tony Sweeney is a medical entomologist. He served as a research officer in the Australian Army Malaria Research Unit and as the medical entomologist with the South Pacific Commission.
