    Plasmodium resistance to chloroquine


    Rapid diagnostic assays for Pf CRT mutations are already employed as surveillance tools for drug resistance. Here, we review recent field studies that support the central role of Pf CRT mutations in chloroquine resistance.

    Two soldiers continued weekly prophylaxis with 300 mg chloroquine base on their return to Australia from Papua New Guinea but were not protected against Plasmodium vivax malaria. Both had symptoms and parasitaemia although plasma concentrations of chloroquine were considerably higher than those regarded as adequate for suppression of vivax 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. Resistance to currently available antimalarial drugs has been confirmed in only two of the four human malaria parasite species, Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax. It is unknown if P. malariae or P. ovale has developed resistance to any antimalarial drugs.

    Recognition of the value of chloroquine was delayed, and it was not brought forward until it was reevaluated in the United States and designated the drug of choice against malaria near the end of World War II [3]. These studies suggest chloroquine resistance arose in ⩾4 distinct geographic foci and substantiate an important role of immunity in the outcomes of resistant infections after chloroquine treatment. Investigation of the resistance mechanisms and of the role of immunity in therapeutic outcomes will support new approaches to drugs that can take the place of chloroquine or augment its efficiency Early in the 20th century, intense demands for an effective quinine substitute launched the discovery and evaluation of a series of organic compounds (beginning with methylene blue), which led to pamaquine and quinacrine after World War I and ultimately produced chloroquine in 1934 [1, 2].

  5. Oct 04, 2002 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. However, direct proof of a causal relationship has remained elusive and most models have posited a multigenic basis of resistance.

    By treating mice infected with Plasmodium berghei Vincke and Lips, 1948, with increasing doses of chloroquine parenterally, a strain RC was developed which was resistant to the maximum dose of the drug which the host could tolerate. Plasmodium falciparum resistance to anti-malarial drugs remains a major obstacle to malaria control and elimination. The parasite has developed resistance to every anti-malarial drug introduced for wide-scale treatment. However, the spread of resistance may be reversible. Plasmodium falciparum parasites have been endemic to Haiti for 40 years without evidence of chloroquine CQ resistance. In 20, we obtained blood smears for rapid diagnostic tests RDTs and filter paper blots of blood from 821 persons by passive and active case detection.

With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more.

    Hydroxychloroquine for Crohns Disease and Ulcerative. Hydroxychloroquine is generally a safe treatment with occasional mild nausea, cramps and mild diarrhea. To prevent reversible keratopathy, corneal exams twice yearly are recommended. Maculopathy is rare but should be screened for with biannual retinal examinations. REFERENCES. 1.
