    Treatment of chloroquine resistant falciparum malaria


    Chloroquine has been extensively used in mass drug administrations, which may have contributed to the emergence and spread of resistance. It is recommended to check if chloroquine is still effective in the region prior to using it.

    The emergence of Plasmodium falciparum resistance to anti-malarial drugs has thwarted malaria control efforts and remains a major obstacle to malaria elimination throughout the world. Chloroquine was one of the first drugs to be used on a wide scale for the treatment of malaria. Drug-resistant P. falciparum. Chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum first developed independently in three to four areas in Southeast Asia, Oceania, and South America in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Since then, chloroquine resistance has spread to nearly all areas of the world where falciparum malaria is transmitted. For P. falciparum infections acquired in areas with chloroquine resistance, four treatment options are available. The first two treatment options are atovaquone-proguanil Malarone or artemether-lumefantrine Coartem.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.

    Prevention and containment activities need to build on, expand and accelerate ongoing national efforts to control and eliminate malaria. In areas of low transmission where antimalarial drug resistance is present, countries should target rapid elimination of falciparum malaria to limit. The gold standard drug for treatment of malaria was chloroquine, a 4-aminoquinoline derivative which has been characterized for its efficacy, low toxicity and affordability Fidock et al. 2004. Inspite of the prevalence of chloroquine resistant Plasmodium falciparum, the drug is continuously used widely especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Even before new therapeutic pursuits bear fruit, the identification of PfCRT as the central determinant of chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum malaria provides a molecular marker that can be used for surveillance of resistance to inform drug treatment and prophylaxis policies. The PfCRT K76T mutation can be detected quickly by use of robust polymerase chain reaction–based assays on dried filter paper blood spots.

    Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy Still Alive and Well - The Rheumatologist It is important to know the facts. Retinal complications from HCQ are actually rare at proper dosage and, with good screening, the risk for visual loss is very low. Nevertheless, retinopathy begins to appear with long-term use, and retinopathy is serious insofar as there is no known treatment.

    Plaquenil What You Need to Know - Kaleidoscope Fighting Lupus Today, Plaquenil and other antimalarials are also used to treat and help prevent symptoms caused by certain autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis RA, systemic lupus erythematosus, and discoid lupus, even though these diseases are not caused by malaria parasites. Plaquenil belongs in a class of medications known as disease-modifying.
