Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics/Time course of the plasma concentrations of AS, AQ & their pharmacologically active metabolites dihydroartemisinin (DHA) & desethylamodiaquine (DSA), used to determine:Tmax, Cmax, t1/2, AUC(0-t) & AUC(0-Inf) for AS, DHA & AQ [ Time Frame: During all the study conduct ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Tmax, Cmax, Truncated AUC(0-10d) for DSA [ Time Frame: during the study conduct ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability/Adverse events, physical examinations, vital signs including heart rate and blood pressure, ECG and laboratory parameters. [ Time Frame: From the signature of the informed consent up to the end of the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
