1. Camoquin (Parke, Davis & CO.) was used under controlled conditions in the treatment of 25 cases of microscopically confirmed malaria. 2. In 20 cases a cure was obtained after a single dose. Two further cases were cured after a second dose. There were 3 failures. 3. The value of certain drugs as malaria suppressants is briefly discussed. 4. It is emphasized that a different drug from that used as a suppressant should be used for treatment when a break-out occurs.
