CPS Unit No. 115, subunit 11, located at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, subjected COs to experiments studying potential drugs for the treatment of malaria.


This OSRD project focused on malaria with one volunteer at a time, and was sponsored by Massachusetts General Hospital. 


Since malaria proved to be a major disease threat in the Pacific, the studies tested results of drugs that had been developed to replace quinine, but had not yet been tested on humans.
