  • The unavailability of the vaccine and the emergence of resistance in the parasite against nearly all existing antimalarial drugs have attracted attention of researchers to modify the existing antimalarial drugs with improved efficacy over older therapies and identify new compounds as appropriate clinical candidate. (
  • None of the antimalarial compounds depleted the level of intracellular glutathione (1-300 microM) when incubated with neutrophils alone. (
  • The magnitude of the effort is reflected by the fact that, in the last 15 years, well over 250000 compounds have been screened for antimalarial activity in just one programme, that carried out under the auspices of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, not to mention sporadic studies undertaken by other research workers and organisations.

(
  • Cluster analysis of the antimalarials based on their differential inhibition of the various cancer lines clearly segregated the synthetic peroxides OZ277 and OZ439 from the artemisinin cluster that included artesunate, dihydroartemisinin and artemisone, and from the DHFR inhibitors pyrimethamine and P218 (a parasite DHFR inhibitor), emphasizing their shared mode of action. (
  • Dr. Wilson Wong and colleagues have found how an antibiotic drug kills the malaria parasite. (
  • Melbourne researchers are making progress towards new antimalarial drugs, after revealing how an antibiotic called emetine blocks the molecular machinery that produces the proteins required for malaria parasite survival. (
  • However, the work of Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers Dr Wilson Wong, Dr Jake Baum and colleagues in showing how emetine attaches to and blocks the molecular machinery that makes the proteins required for malaria parasite survival has revealed new approaches for antimalarial drug development. (
  • Drug makers could exploit these features in order to specifically target the production of proteins within the malaria parasite," Dr Wong said. (
  • If the decision is ratified by the country's Central Drugs Standard Control Organization, the new drug - developed from start to finish by the New Delhi-based pharmaceutical company Ranbaxy Laboratories - will add to doctors' armament of artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs), the World Health Organization's medicine of choice for tackling the parasite. (
  • Treating mosquitoes with drugs that target the disease-causing parasite offers another way of tackling malaria. (
  • This enzyme target is also important for parasite resistance to a current front-line antimalarial drug, called artimisinin. (
  • PKG is a nice drug target because you can target the parasite life cycle stages that cause disease symptoms but also those that transmit disease through mosquitoes thereby preventing the parasite from causing disease in the human host. (
  • The results show that both drugs, when encapsulated, inhibited parasite growth in vitro at concentrations that had no effect when used as free drugs. (
  • Malaria Treatment: Effectiveness of antimalarial drugs is always under the scanner because of the drug resistance developed by the malaria parasite. (

(
  • But the longer action of these drug combinations comes with a price: it may allow new parasites to adapt and become resistant to the drugs, an effect that has plagued malaria treatment worldwide. (
  • If substandard medicines are widely used, they can also select for drug-resistant parasites. (
  • To prevent further spread, the geographic location of drug-resistant parasites must be known. (
  • Resistance can spread only when the basic reproduction number of the resistant parasites is bigger than the basic reproduction number of the sensitive parasites (which depends on the fraction of infected people treated with the antimalarial drug). (
  • Intensive efforts have been and are being made to develop new antimalarial agents that will be effective against such parasites. (
  • Resistant parasites now have a modified digestive vacuole membrane protein which exports the drug. (
  • Sometimes one person is infected with more than one type of malaria parasites, sensitive to different drugs. (
  • Hence the malaria parasites, might not be cleared with one type of drug. (
  • Chlorquine was the most widely used antimalarial drug but drug-resistance developed by malaria parasites of late has rapidly reduced its efficiency. (

  • Calculation of the heat of formation of the drugs, however, demonstrated that amodiaquine, tebuquine, cycloquine, and pyronaridine readily undergo oxidation to their quinoneimine. (
  • In summary, our data show that amodiaquine and related antimalarials containing a p-aminophenol moiety undergo bioactivation in vitro to chemically reactive and cytotoxic intermediates. (
  • We have investigated the chemical basis of amodiaquine-induced toxicity and compared the findings with those for established antimalarial drugs proposed for human use. (
  • In contrast to other antimalarial agents, amodiaquine (because it contains a 4-aminophenol function) depleted glutathione in activated neutrophils, by formation of an electrophilic quinoneimine metabolite. (
