Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum), strain Cam5_rev is a K13-propeller revertant mutant of the original Cam5 strain, featuring a reversion in wild-type allele I543T. The original Cam5 strain (also referred to as IPC 4912), was isolated in 2011 from a human patient with malaria in Mondulkiri province, eastern Cambodia.

P. falciparum, strain Cam5_rev was deposited as susceptible to artemisinin. When exposed to dihydroartemisinin, P. falciparum, strain Cam5_rev gave a ring-stage survival assay (RSA0-3h) value of 0.3%; the parental Cam5 strain gave a RSA0-3h value of 43.4%.

Each vial of MRA-1253 contains approximately 0.5 mL of P. falciparum infected human blood in Glycerolyte 57 solution (1:5).
