    Malaria resistance to chloroquine


    Parasites that cause malaria typically enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia.

    Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance is a major cause of worldwide increases in malaria mortality and morbidity. Recent laboratory and clinical studies have associated chloroquine resistance with point mutations in the gene pfcrt. Following the war, chloroquine and DDT emerged as the two principal weapons in WHO’s global eradication malaria campaign. Subsequently, chloroquine resistant P. falciparum probably arose in four separate locations starting with the Thai-Cambodian border around 1957; in Venezuela and parts of Colombia around 1960; in Papua New Guinea in the mid-1970s and in Africa starting in 1978 in Kenya and Tanzania and spreading by 1983 to Sudan, Uganda, Zambia and Malawi. Emergence of resistance to antimalarial drugs has become a major hurdle in the successful treatment of the infection, and has contributed significantly to global malaria-related mortality.1 Till date, drug resistance has been documented in P. falciparum, P. vivax, and P. malariae.1 P. falciparum has developed resistance to nearly all.

    Chloroquine is also used to treat amebiasis (infection caused by amoebae). Chloroquine is used to treat and to prevent malaria.

  5. Chloroquine was first discovered in 1934 and for decades was widely used as a cheap and safe drug both to treat malaria, and as a prophylaxis. However, in the 1980s, widespread resistance developed in the parasite causing the most pathogenic form of malaria, Plasmodium falciparum.

    Treatment of uncomplicated malaria due to Chloroquine-sensitive Plasmodium species Adults An initial dose of 1 g salt = 600 mg base followed by an additional 500 mg = 300 mg base after six to eight hours and a single dose of 500 mg = 300 mg base on each of two consecutive days. This represents a total dose of 2.5 g Chloroquine phosphate or 1.5 g base in three days. Chloroquine is a medication used to prevent and to treat malaria in areas where malaria is known to be sensitive to its effects. Certain types of malaria, resistant strains, and complicated cases typically require different or additional medication. Parasites that cause malaria typically enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Chloroquine is used to treat and to prevent malaria. Chloroquine is also used to treat amebiasis infection caused by amoebae.

Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is the most commonly prescribed because it is generally believed to cause fewer side effects; chloroquine Aralen has a reputation for more serious side effects, but it may be prescribed in situations where hydroxychloroquine cannot be used.

    Vivax malaria resistant to treatment and prophylaxis with. Chloroquine has been the treatment of choice for vivax malaria for more than 40 years. Lately, several case-reports have suggested the emergence of resistance to chloroquine in Plasmodium vivax in Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. We undertook prospective treatment and prophylaxis trials of chloroquine in children and adults with vivax malaria living in Irian Jaya Indonesian New Guinea. 46.
