    Chloroquine resistant malaria in india


    Chloroquine was first discovered in the 1930s in Germany and began to be widely used as an anti-malaria post-World War II, in the late 1940s. However, resistance to the drug also rapidly emerged, with the first cases of not being cured by administration of chloroquine being reported in the 1950s.

    Finally, introduction of resistant malaria into non-immune populations such as refugees or migrants increases the opportunity for spread of resistance, because parasites with low or moderate resistance would be cleared in semi-immune populations. 35 In India, antimalarial resistance for chloroquine and sulfa–pyrimethamine was fi rst reported. Resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to chloroquine was first reported in 1973 and increases in antimalarial resistance, along with rapid urbanisation and labour migration, complicated the challenge that India’s large geographical area and population size already pose for malaria control. Although several institutions have done drug-resistance monitoring in India, a complete analysis of countrywide data across institutions does not exist. In chloroquine-sensitive areas, chloroquine is given weekly, but in chloroquine-resistant areas, chloroquine should be supplemented by daily proguanil. For treatment of vivax malaria, treatment with 1500 mg chloroquine over 3 days and Primaquine 0.25 mg/kg for 14 days under medical supervision is recommended.

    Nowadays, other drugs, and notably ones containing artemisinin-based compounds, are preferentially used to treat uncomplicated malaria and especially in areas where chloroquine resistance is known to occur. Since then, resistance has spread rapidly (since obviously it is beneficial to the parasite to be resistant, so various mutations conferring this protection have arisen multiple times in different areas in the world and also been passed on preferentially to new generations of malaria parasites), and now chloroquine resistant are found in multiple locations in south-east Asia, such as Myanmar and India, as well as from Guyana in South America.

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.

Considerations when choosing a drug for malaria prophylaxis Recommendations for drugs to prevent malaria differ by country of travel and can be found in Malaria Information by Country. Recommended drugs for each country are listed in alphabetical order and have comparable efficacy in that country. In India, chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum malaria has been observed with increasing frequency across the country in recent years. Considering this, the Government of India has recommended the combination of artesunate and Sulfa-Pyrimethamine as the treatment of choice for P. falciparum and mixed infections all across the country.21

    Hi everybody, I was wondering if Plaquenil's primary mode of action was to suppress the immune system? Does Plaquenil supress the immune system? Anyone on Hydroxychloroquine plaquenil - Autoimmune. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil Side Effects & Dosage for Malaria

    I have been getting a generic form my Sandoz and when I got it filled a few weeks ago, they switched me to another brand. I woke up today feeling the worse that I've felt in a very long time. I wondered if this was the name brand but i paid the same generic price. IF something is working for me, I don't like change. I've also been having some tremors in the past two years. It plainly has Plaquenil written on the pill and the generic does not have that. UK bans parallel export and hoarding of three Covid-19 drugs Shortage of Rheumatologists in U. S.

    Hydroxychloroquine in Individuals At-risk for Type 1 Diabetes. This study is testing a medication, called hydroxychloroquine HCQ to assess safety and effectiveness to prevent individuals at risk of type 1 diabetes T1D from progressing to type 1 diabetes. HCQ is approved by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
