Reports claim that the drug combination was unable to cure four patients, who had all visited Africa.
However, team at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said it was too early to panic but warned things could suddenly get worse and demanded an urgent appraisal of drug-resistance levels in Africa.
