Good study

I was just browsing through articles on ACTs in Rx of malaria and came accross this interesting article.I wonder if the same study can be done in other parts of the country or other hospitals so that we can have a good sample size and may be make a very good conclusion.My qtn is what would be the cost for both treatments?Other wise it is very promising.God bless
