Antimalarials: Agents used in the treatment of malaria. They are usually classified on the basis of their action against plasmodia at different stages in their life cycle in the human. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p1585)Artemisinins: A group of SESQUITERPENES and their analogs that contain a peroxide group (PEROXIDES) within an oxepin ring (OXEPINS).Chloroquine: The prototypical antimalarial agent with a mechanism that is not well understood. It has also been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and in the systemic therapy of amebic liver abscesses.Plasmodium falciparum: A species of protozoa that is the causal agent of falciparum malaria (MALARIA, FALCIPARUM). It is most prevalent in the tropics and subtropics.Parasitic Sensitivity Tests: Tests that demonstrate the relative effectiveness of chemotherapeutic agents against specific parasites.Mefloquine: A phospholipid-interacting antimalarial drug (ANTIMALARIALS).

Malaria is endemic in parts of Asia, Africa, Central and South America, Oceania, and certain Caribbean islands. It is characterized by extreme exhaustion associated with paroxysms of high FEVER; SWEATING; shaking CHILLS; and ANEMIA. Malaria in ANIMALS is caused by other species of plasmodia.Quinine: An alkaloid derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.Malaria, Falciparum: Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM. This is the severest form of malaria and is associated with the highest levels of parasites in the blood. This disease is characterized by irregularly recurring febrile paroxysms that in extreme cases occur with acute cerebral, renal, or gastrointestinal manifestations.SesquiterpenesDrug Resistance: Diminished or failed response of an organism, disease or tissue to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should be differentiated from DRUG TOLERANCE which is the progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, as a result of continued administration.Fluorenes: A family of diphenylenemethane derivatives.Sulfadoxine: A long acting sulfonamide that is used, usually in combination with other drugs, for respiratory, urinary tract, and malarial infections.Pyrimethamine: One of the FOLIC ACID ANTAGONISTS that is used as an antimalarial or with a sulfonamide to treat toxoplasmosis.Plasmodium cynomolgi: A protozoan parasite that occurs naturally in the macaque.

This species has been found to give rise to both natural and experimental human infections.PhenanthrenesPlasmodium: A genus of protozoa that comprise the malaria parasites of mammals. Four species infect humans (although occasional infections with primate malarias may occur). These are PLASMODIUM FALCIPARUM; PLASMODIUM MALARIAE; PLASMODIUM OVALE, and PLASMODIUM VIVAX. Species causing infection in vertebrates other than man include: PLASMODIUM BERGHEI; PLASMODIUM CHABAUDI; P. vinckei, and PLASMODIUM YOELII in rodents; P. brasilianum, PLASMODIUM CYNOMOLGI; and PLASMODIUM KNOWLESI in monkeys; and PLASMODIUM GALLINACEUM in chickens.Tetraoxanes: Compounds with two peroxide groups, that is, two pairs of adjacent OXYGEN atoms. They may have activity against PLASMODIUM similar to the ARTEMISININS.Drug Combinations: Single preparations containing two or more active agents, for the purpose of their concurrent administration as a fixed dose mixture.Proguanil: A biguanide compound which metabolizes in the body to form cycloguanil, an anti-malaria agent.Amodiaquine: A 4-aminoquinoline compound with anti-inflammatory properties.Parasitemia: The presence of parasites (especially malarial parasites) in the blood.

Malaria prophylaxis using azithromycin: a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in Irian Jaya, Indonesia. (1/4748)

New drugs are needed for preventing drug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria. The prophylactic efficacy of azithromycin against P. falciparum in malaria-immune Kenyans was 83%. We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to determine the prophylactic efficacy of azithromycin against multidrug-resistant P. falciparum malaria and chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium vivax malaria in Indonesian adults with limited immunity. After radical cure therapy, 300 randomized subjects received azithromycin (148 subjects, 750-mg loading dose followed by 250 mg/d), placebo (77), or doxycycline (75, 100 mg/d). The end point was slide-proven parasitemia. There were 58 P. falciparum and 29 P. vivax prophylaxis failures over 20 weeks. Using incidence rates, the protective efficacy of azithromycin relative to placebo was 71.6% (95% confidence interval [CI], 50.3-83.8) against P. falciparum malaria and 98.9% (95% CI, 93.1-99.9) against P. vivax malaria. Corresponding figures for doxycycline were 96.3% (95% CI, 85.4-99.6) and 98% (95% CI, 88.0-99.9), respectively. Daily azithromycin offered excellent protection against P. vivax malaria but modest protection against P. falciparum malaria.  (+info)

8-Aminoquinolines active against blood stage Plasmodium falciparum in vitro inhibit hematin polymerization. (2/4748)

From the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) inventory, thirteen 8-aminoquinoline analogs of primaquine were selected for screening against a panel of seven Plasmodium falciparum clones and isolates. Six of the 13 8-aminoquinolines had average 50% inhibitory concentrations between 50 and 100 nM against these P. falciparum clones and were thus an order of magnitude more potent than primaquine. However, excluding chloroquine-resistant clones and isolates, these 8-aminoquinolines were all an order of magnitude less potent than chloroquine. None of the 8-aminoquinolines was cross resistant with either chloroquine or mefloquine. In contrast to the inactive primaquine prototype, 8 of the 13 8-aminoquinolines inhibited hematin polymerization more efficiently than did chloroquine. Although alkoxy or aryloxy substituents at position 5 uniquely endowed these 13 8-aminoquinolines with impressive schizontocidal activity, the structural specificity of inhibition of both parasite growth and hematin polymerization was low.  (+info)

Alternative oxidase inhibitors potentiate the activity of atovaquone against Plasmodium falciparum. (3/4748)

Recent evidence suggests that the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum utilizes a branched respiratory pathway including both a cytochrome chain and an alternative oxidase. This branched respiratory pathway model has been used as a basis for examining the mechanism of action of two antimalarial agents, atovaquone and proguanil. In polarographic assays, atovaquone immediately reduced the parasite oxygen consumption rate in a concentration-dependent manner. This is consistent with its previously described role as an inhibitor of the cytochrome bc1 complex. Atovaquone maximally inhibited the rate of P. falciparum oxygen consumption by 73% +/- 10%. At all atovaquone concentrations tested, the addition of the alternative oxidase inhibitor, salicylhydroxamic acid, resulted in a further decrease in the rate of parasite oxygen consumption. At the highest concentrations of atovaquone tested, the activities of salicylhydroxamic acid and atovaquone appear to overlap, suggesting that at these concentrations, atovaquone partially inhibits the alternative oxidase as well as the cytochrome chain. Drug interaction studies with atovaquone and salicylhydroxamic acid indicate atovaquone's activity against P. falciparum in vitro is potentiated by this alternative oxidase inhibitor, with a sum fractional inhibitory concentration of 0.6. Propyl gallate, another alternative oxidase inhibitor, also potentiated atovaquone's activity, with a sum fractional inhibitory concentration of 0.7. Proguanil, which potentiates atovaquone activity in vitro and in vivo, had a small effect on parasite oxygen consumption in polarographic assays when used alone or in the presence of atovaquone or salicylhydroxamic acid. This suggests that proguanil does not potentiate atovaquone by direct inhibition of either branch of the parasite respiratory chain.  (+info)

Declining concentrations of dihydroartemisinin in plasma during 5-day oral treatment with artesunate for Falciparum malaria. (4/4748)

Six patients with uncomplicated falciparum malaria received artesunate for 5 days. Plasma concentrations of artesunate and dihydroartemisinin were determined by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection. The concentrations of dihydroartemisinin in plasma 2 h after a dose showed a time-dependent decline. Concentrations of artesunate in plasma especially after the last dose, were very low. Despite this, all patients responded with a fast recovery.  (+info)

Comparison of in vivo and in vitro tests of resistance in patients treated with chloroquine in Yaounde, Cameroon. (5/4748)

The usefulness of an isotopic in vitro assay in the field was evaluated by comparing its results with the therapeutic response determined by the simplified WHO in vivo test in symptomatic Cameroonian patients treated with chloroquine. Of the 117 enrolled patients, 102 (87%) completed the 14-day follow-up, and 95 isolates obtained from these patients (46 children, 49 adults) yielded an interpretable in vitro test. A total of 57 of 95 patients (60%; 28 children and 29 adults) had an adequate clinical response with negative smears (n = 46) or with an asymptomatic parasitaemia (n = 11) on day 7 and/or day 14. The geometric mean 50% inhibitory concentration of the isolates obtained from these patients was 63.3 nmol/l. Late and early treatment failure was observed in 29 (30.5%) and 9 (9.5%) patients, respectively. The geometric mean 50% inhibitory concentrations of the corresponding isolates were 173 nmol/l and 302 nmol/l. Among the patients responding with late and early treatment failure, five isolates and one isolate, respectively, yielded a discordant result (in vivo resistance and in vitro sensitivity). The sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value of the in vitro test to detect chloroquine-sensitive cases was 67%, 84% and 86%, respectively. There was moderate concordance between the in vitro and in vivo tests (kappa value = 0.48). The in vitro assay agrees relatively well with the therapeutic response and excludes several host factors that influence the results of the in vivo test. However, in view of some discordant results, the in vitro test cannot substitute for in vivo data on therapeutic efficacy. The only reliable definition of "resistance" in malaria parasites is based on clinical and parasitological response in symptomatic patients, and the in vivo test provides the standard method to determine drug sensitivity or resistance as well as to guide national drug policies.  (+info)

Intrinsic efficacy of proguanil against falciparum and vivax malaria independent of the metabolite cycloguanil. (6/4748)

Mutations in human CYP2C19 and parasite dihydrofolate reductase (dhfr) genes, related to poor metabolism of proguanil and resistance to cycloguanil, respectively, have both been assumed to be associated with poor antimalarial effect by proguanil. To study this, 95 subjects with uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum or Plasmodium vivax infections in Vanuatu received proguanil treatment for 3 days (adult relative dose of 300-500 mg/day) and were followed up for 28 days. A similarly high antimalarial efficacy against both infections was observed in 62 patients with CYP2C19-related poor metabolizer genotype and in 33 with extensive metabolizer genotype, even though blood cycloguanil was significantly more often detected in those with extensive metabolizer genotype than in those with poor metabolizer genotype. All 28 P. falciparum isolates had two dhfr mutations (residues 59 and 108), suggesting moderate resistance to cycloguanil. The results suggest that the parent compound proguanil has significant intrinsic efficacy against falciparum and vivax malaria independent of the metabolite cycloguanil.  (+info)

A randomized, double-blind, comparative trial of a new oral combination of artemether and benflumetol (CGP 56697) with mefloquine in the treatment of acute Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Thailand. (7/4748)

CGP 56697, a new oral fixed combination of artemether and benflumetol, was tested in a double-blinded, randomized trial in 252 adult patients treated either with CGP 56697 (4 x 4 tablets each containing 20 mg of artemether and 120 mg of benflumetol, given at 0, 8, 24, and 48 hr), or with mefloquine (three tablets of 250 mg at initial diagnosis, followed by two tablets of 250 mg at 8 hr). Baseline data of the two groups were comparable. The 28-day cure rate with CGP 56697 was lower than with mefloquine (69.3% versus 82.4%; P = 0.002). However, CGP 56697 was more effective than mefloquine in parasite clearance time (43 hr versus 66 hr; P < 0.001) fever clearance time (32 hr versus 54 hr; P < 0.005), and gametocyte clearance time (152 hr versus 331 hr; P < 0.001). This study revealed that CGP 56697 is effective against multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria in Thailand, but higher doses will probably be needed to improve the cure rate.  (+info)

The pharmacokinetics of artemisinin after administration of two different suppositories to healthy Vietnamese subjects. (8/4748)

Eight healthy Vietnamese male subjects received 400 mg artemisinin formulated into fatty suppositories (FS), and six different subjects received 500 mg of artemisinin formulated in polyethylene glycol suppositories (PEGS). Plasma concentrations were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection; concentration versus time curves were analyzed with nonparametric methods. No statistically significant differences were found between the two formulations. The maximum concentration (Cmax) was 100 +/- 102 microg/L (mean +/- SD, range = 24-330) microg/L (FS), the pharmacokinetic lag time (Tlag) was 1.3 +/- 1.0 hr (range = 0-3) (FS), and the time of the maximum concentration (Tmax) was 7.1 +/- 2.1 hr (range = 3-10) hr (FS). Because artemisinin is not available for intravenous dosage, absolute bioavailability cannot be assessed. However, compared with a previous study on oral artemisinin in healthy Vietnamese subjects, bioavailability relative to oral administration was estimated to be approximately 30%. We conclude that therapeutic blood concentrations of artemisinin can be reached after rectal dosage. The dose after rectal administration should probably be higher than after oral administration; doubling or tripling the oral dose might be necessary, which would imply a rectal dose of at least 20 mg/kg of body weight given twice a day.  (+info)

Coartem® is the combination of artemether and lumefantrine used for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria 1. This oral combination seems to be well-tolerated and is useful for treatment of multi-drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum. This unique anti-malarial agent combines the fast, but short-acting artemether with a less potent, but longer-acting lumefantrine. Original studies with the combination demonstrated safety and efficacy in adults and children with uncomplicated falciparum malaria. 2,3 Additional studies showed superiority with respect to parasite clearance time versus halofantrine,4 chloroquine5, and mefloquine6. Coartem® also demonstrated a faster reduction in parasite burden after 24-hours versus halofantrine4, chloroquine5 (in adults), chloroquine (in children) 7, and mefloquine6. Various other studies have shown artemether-lumefantrine to have a superior 28-day cure rate, as well as time to fever resolution compared to other antimalarial agents.1 Both components of ...
Project researcher: Dr Ilsa Haeusler, Academic Foundation Doctor Ilsas main project during the AFP was to undertake a systematic literature review to investigate the effects of antimalarial drugs on cardiac adverse events. She wanted to determine whether antimalarial drugs, particularly quinoline antimalarials, caused cardiovascular side effects such as prolongation of the QT interval on the electrocardiogram. The project allowed her to learn the fundamentals of systematic reviewing, particularly in terms of literature search, reference acquisition, database design and analysis. The review was large with many variables having been extracted, so dealing with the volume of data was a key learning point. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn about standardised ways of carrying out a systematic review using the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. The question of cardiotoxic effects of antimalarial drugs is very relevant to clinical practice on ...

Objectives: The in vitro and in vivo efficacy and drug-drug interactions of the novel semi-synthetic endoperoxide artemisone with standard antimalarials were investigated in order to provide the basis for the selection of the best partner drug. Methods: Antimalarial activity and drug interactions were evaluated in vitro against Plasmodium falciparum by the incorporation of [,sup,3,/sup,H]hypoxanthine. In vivo efficacy and drug interactions were assessed using the standard 4-day Peters test. Results: Artemisone was 10 times more potent than artesunate in vitro against a panel of 12 P. falciparum strains, independent of their susceptibility profile to antimalarial drugs, and consistently 4 to 10 times more potent than artesunate in rodent models against drug-susceptible and primaquine- or sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine-resistant Plasmodium berghei lines and chloroquine- or artemisinin-resistant lines of Plasmodium yoelii. Slight antagonistic trends were found between artemisone and chloroquine, ...
Background: Malaria remains a disease of devastating global impact, killing more than 800,000 people every year-the vast majority being children under the age of 5. While effective therapies are available, if malaria is to be eradicated a broader range of small molecule therapeutics that are able to target the liver and the transmissible sexual stages are required. These new medicines are needed both to meet the challenge of malaria eradication and to circumvent resistance. Methods and Findings: Little is known about the wider stage-specific activities of current antimalarials that were primarily designed to alleviate symptoms of malaria in the blood stage. To overcome this critical gap, we developed assays to measure activity of antimalarials against all life stages of malaria parasites, using a diverse set of human and nonhuman parasite species, including male gamete production (exflagellation) in Plasmodium falciparum, ookinete development in P. berghei, oocyst development in P. berghei and ...

Malaria is one of the most important infectious diseases worldwide. New therapies are needed, and it is generally agreed that combination therapy for uncomplicated malaria offers the best opportunity for effective therapy and for the prevention of selection of resistant parasites. Phase I of this study will be a randomized, single-blinded longitudinal clinical trial, comparing the efficacies of different combination antimalarial regimens for the treatment of uncomplicated malaria in a cohort of Ugandan children. The clinical study will be linked to an epidemiological survey and molecular analyses of parasite and human genetic polymorphisms. The aims of the study will be to: compare safety, tolerability, and efficacy of combination antimalarial therapies using a longitudinal design; follow plasmodial genetic polymorphisms as longitudinal markers of antimalarial drug resistance; and evaluate the roles of host genetic polymorphisms in antimalarial drug resistance and the incidence of clinical ...

Malaria can be regarded as one of the worlds worst health problems and its incidence is rising inexorably. It already accounts for the deaths of approximately three children every minute. This situation is exacerbated by the increased frequency of parasite resistance to current antimalarial agents and necessitates the development of new drugs to combat this disease P. falciparum possesses a plastid-like organelle, termed the apicoplast, which contains a small, highly reduced 35kb genome encoding tRNA, DNA polymerases and ribosomal proteins. Nuclear proteins are targeted to the apicoplast using clearly defined N-terminal signal and target peptide sequences. This led to the discovery that the apicoplast may be the site of at least two anabolic pathways isoprenoid synthesis and Type II fatty acid synthesis (FAS). This system is also present in bacteria and plants and differs significantly from the Type I FAS system found in humans. This makes the pathway an attractive target for novel ...

As the MDGs transition to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2016, MMVs priorities too are evolving. We will focus less on developing artemisinin combination therapies and more on next-generation antimalarials. These future medicines will break the cycle of relapsing malaria, overcome the challenges of compliance and drug resistance, and protect vulnerable populations. In doing so, they will support the realization of the proposed SDG 3 - to ensure the sustainability of healthy lives and wellbeing for all, at all ages.. And while the goals have yet to be finalised, we, the global health community must advocate for health to feature high on the agenda. Health is after all, the foundation of all sustainable development.. Our goal to break the cycle of malaria and poverty by developing and delivering new medicines is certainly ambitious and MMV is but a small organization of 55 individuals. Yet, thanks to our ever-growing network of partners and donors, who are as committed as MMV to the ...

BACKGROUND: Gametocytes are responsible for transmission of malaria from human to mosquito. Artemisinin combination therapy (ACT) reduces post-treatment gametocyte carriage, dependent upon host, parasite and pharmacodynamic factors. The gametocytocidal properties of antimalarial drugs are important for malaria elimination efforts. An individual patient clinical data meta-analysis was undertaken to identify the determinants of gametocyte carriage and the comparative effects of four ACTs: artemether-lumefantrine (AL), artesunate/amodiaquine (AS-AQ), artesunate/mefloquine (AS-MQ), and dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine (DP). METHODS: Factors associated with gametocytaemia prior to, and following, ACT treatment were identified in multivariable logistic or Cox regression analysis with random effects. All relevant studies were identified through a systematic review of PubMed. Risk of bias was evaluated based on study design, methodology, and missing data. RESULTS: The systematic review identified 169 published

Objective: To investigate whether antimalarials decrease the risk of cancer in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).. Methods: An observational prospective cohort study was carried out. 235 patients were included in the study at the time of diagnosis (American College of Rheumatology criteria). The end point was the diagnosis of cancer. Kaplan-Meier cancer-free survival curves for patients treated and not treated with antimalarials were compared. A Cox proportional hazards model was fitted, with cancer as the dependent variable. Age at diagnosis, gender, treatment with azathioprine, cyclophosphamide and methotrexate, smoking, Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC) Damage Index 6 months after diagnosis, year of diagnosis and treatment with antimalarials were entered as independent variables.. Results: 209 (89%) patients were women. 233 (99%) patients were white. Mean (SD) age at diagnosis was ...
Naturally acquired immunity can reduce parasitaemia and potentially influence anti-malarial treatment outcomes; however, evidence for this in the current literature provides conflicted results. The available evidence was synthesized to determine and quantify the association between host immunity and anti-malarial treatment failure. Four databases were searched to identify studies investigating malaria antibody levels in patients receiving anti-malarial treatment for symptomatic malaria with treatment failure recorded according to the World Health Organization classification. Odds ratios or hazard ratios were extracted or calculated to quantify the association between malarial antibody levels and treatment failure, and findings from different studies were visualized using forest plots. Eight studies, including patients with falciparum malaria treated with mono- and combination therapy of artemisinin derivatives, sulfadoxine, pyrimethamine and chloroquine, were identified. Reported and calculated effect
The impact of vector control measures on the evolution of antimalarial drug resistance is an important issue for malaria control programs. We investigated whether the in vivo efficacy of chloroquine (CQ) in children aged 6-59 months with uncomplicated malaria differed in 9 villages that had benefited from long-term use of insecticide-treated curtains (ITCs) and in 9 nearby non-ITC villages. We also compared the prevalence of genetic markers of resistance to CQ and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) between the two groups of villages. The study enrolled 1,035 children with uncomplicated malaria and 231 infected but asymptomatic children. After taking account of re-infections, the proportions of children who experienced clinical failure after treatment with CQ were 14% and 19% in ITC and non-ITC villages, respectively (OR = 0.68; 95% CI: 0.39, 1.18). Parasitologic failure was observed in 49% of children in ITC villages and 58% of children in non-ITC villages (OR = 0.71 95%CI: 0.44, 1.13). The ...
Exposure to anti-malarial drugs as a result of chemoprophylaxis or treatment of the infection and choice of drug depend on the clinical judgment of the physician, treatment policy, availability or cost. The adoption of ACT for malaria treatment and increasing access to this class of anti-malarial drugs offer an opportunity to evaluate occurrence of ADRs to these medicines in the larger population or community [5], Post-marketing surveillance offers assessment of drug released to the market in different categories of people, other than those in whom the drug was tested. ACT is new to anti-malarial therapy in Nigeria and this is additional reason this study was carried to actively monitor possible ADRs over an extended period.. Data from this study indicate that medicines in general are purchased more from pharmacies compared to PPMS. However, a high volume of anti-malarial drugs (23.7%) is purchased at the PPMS. This implies that people in the study area, prefer PPMS as the first point of ...

Interpretive Summary: Malaria is a serious disease affecting more than 500 million people worldwide every year. Recent estimates of the global malaria burden have shown increasing levels of malaria morbidity and mortality. The main factor contributing to the increasing malaria mortality and morbidity is the widespread resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to conventional antimalarial drugs such as chloroquine, sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) and amodiaquine. Since the parasites resistance to medicines continues to undermine malaria control efforts, new antimalarial agents are needed. Anthothecol, a limonoid of Khaya anthotheca (Meliaceae), showed potent antimalarial activity against malaria parasites with IC50 values of 1.4 and 0.17 uM using two different assays. Anthothecol might be a useful product for ...
Background: In Tanzania, many people seek malaria treatment from retail drug sellers. The National Malaria Control Program identified the accredited drug dispensing outlet (ADDO) program as a private sector mechanism to supplement the distribution of subsidized artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) from public facilities and increase access to the first-line antimalarial in rural and underserved areas. The ADDO program strengthens private sector pharmaceutical services by improving regulatory and supervisory support, dispenser training, and record keeping practices.. Methods: The governments pilot program made subsidized ACTs available through ADDOs in 10 districts in the Morogoro and Ruvuma regions, covering about 2.9 million people. The program established a supply of subsidized ACTs, created a price system with a cost recovery plan, developed a plan to distribute the subsidized products to the ADDOs, trained dispensers, and strengthened the adverse drug reactions reporting system. ...
In vitro response to chloroquine, monodesethylamodiaquine, mefloquine, lumefantrine, and dihydroartemisinin was assessed by the radioisotopic microtest in Yaoundé, Cameroon, during 2000-2004 and compared with our previous data obtained during 1996-1999. Based on the cut-off value of 100 nmol/L, 36.3% of isolates were chloroquine-susceptible (N = 175; geometric mean IC50, 40.3 nmol/L) and 63.7% were chloroquine-resistant (N = 307; geometric mean IC50, 211 nmol/L). There was no significant difference (P | 0.05) in the mean IC50s from 1996 to 2004, but a significant linear trend (P | 0.05) toward an increased proportion of chloroquine-resistant isolates was observed from 1996 (49%) to 2004 (69%). All chloroquine-susceptible isolates and most chloroquine-resistant isolates were susceptible to monodesethylamodiaquine (i.e., IC50 | 60 nmol/L). Despite the positive correlation between chloroquine and monodesethylamodiaquine (r = 0.739, P | 0.05), the IC50s for monodesethylamodiaquine remained stable during
Drug resistance of Plasmodium falciparum, the most deadly human malaria parasite, is a major factor in the widespread persistence of malaria (Ouellette & Kunding 1997, Macreadi et al. 2000). Current efforts focus on research into novel compounds and on measures to prevent or delay resistance once new drugs are introduced. However, malaria therapy has generally not taken into consideration the stage-specificity of action of different drugs. This is an important consideration, since inappropriate timing of administration of antimalarial drugs might limit drug efficacy and favor the selection of drug-resistant parasites.. Few studies have focused on the in vitro stage-specific efficacy of antimalarial compounds (Chimanuka et al. 2001). Most in vitro studies monitoring resistance and susceptibility to antimalarial compounds have been performed by microscopy and by uptake of a radiolabelled nucleic acid precursor 3[H]-hypoxanthine (Desjardins et al. 1979). They are poorly suited to discriminate ...
Background: Malaria has always been a major public health problem in Yemen. Several studies in developing countries have demonstrated ineffective and poor quality drugs including antimalarials. Therefore, quality assessment of antimalarial drugs is of crucial importance. This study aimed to assess the quality of antimalarials (chloroquine and sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine) available in Yemen and to determine whether the quality of these products was related to the level of the distribution chain at which the samples were collected or related to the manufacturers.. Methods: Four samples from each antimalarial product were collected from each of the various levels of the distribution chain. One sample was kept with the research team. Two were tested at Sanaa and Aden Drug Quality Control Laboratories. The fourth was sent to the Centre for Quality Assurance of Medicines in Potchefstroom, South Africa, for analysis. Quality indicators measured were the content of the active ingredient and dissolution ...
The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed guidelines for in vivo antimalarial drug efficacy testing for Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax in areas with low-to-moderate transmission, such as the Americas. These guidelines are used widely by ministries of health and national malaria control programs to assess the efficacy of their first-line and second-line drugs for the treatment of malaria and to provide the information necessary to update national malaria treatment policies. Following the WHO guidelines, we have conducted in vivo efficacy trials with a variety of drugs and drug combinations against P. falciparum and P. vivax at 13 sites in Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Based on these experiences, we have identified several modifications that we believe should be made in the WHO recommendations to make them more suitable to the relatively low levels of P. falciparum transmission in the Americas and to the logistic challenges of carrying out such studies in sparsely populated areas, such
Plasmodium falciparum, the most deadly agent of malaria, displays a wide variety of resistance mechanisms in the field. The ability of antimalarial compounds in development to overcome these must therefore be carefully evaluated to ensure uncompromised activity against real-life parasites. We report here on the selection and phenotypic as well as genotypic characterization of a panel of sensitive and multidrug-resistant P. falciparum strains that can be used to optimally identify and deconvolute the cross-resistance signals from an extended panel of investigational antimalarials. As a case study, the effectiveness of the selected panel of strains was demonstrated using the 1,2,4-oxadiazole series, a newly identified antimalarial series of compounds with in vitro activity against P. falciparum at nanomolar concentrations. This series of compounds was to be found inactive against several multidrug-resistant strains, and the deconvolution of this signal implicated pfcrt, the genetic determinant of ...

BACKGROUND: Very few data on anti-malarial efficacy are available from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). DRC changed its anti-malarial treatment policy to amodiaquine (AQ) and artesunate (AS) in 2005.. METHODS: The results of two in vivo efficacy studies, which tested AQ and sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) monotherapies and AS+SP and AS+AQ combinations in Boende (Equatorial province), and AS+SP, AS+AQ and SP in Kabalo (Katanga province), between 2003 and 2004 are presented. The methodology followed the WHO 2003 protocol for assessing the efficacy of anti-malarials in areas of high transmission.. RESULTS: Out of 394 included patients in Boende, the failure rates on day 28 after PCR-genotyping adjustment of AS+SP and AS+AQ were estimated as 24.6% [95% CI: 16.6-35.5] and 15.1% [95% CI: 8.6-25.7], respectively. For the monotherapies, failure rates were 35.9% [95% CI: 27.0-46.7] for SP and 18.3% [95% CI: 11.6-28.1] for AQ. Out of 207 patients enrolled in Kabalo, the failure rate on day 28 after ...
To establish the role of the ferrocenyl moiety in the antiplasmodial activity of ferroquine, compounds in which this moiety is replaced by the corresponding ruthenium-based moieties were synthesized and evaluated. In both the sensitive (D 10) and resistant (K1) strains of Plasmodium falciparum, ruthenoquine analogues showed comparable potency to ferroquine. This suggests that a probable role of the ferrocenyl fragment is to serve simply as a hydrophobic spacer group. In addition, ferroquine analogues with different aromatic substituents were synthesized and evaluated. Unexpectedly high activity for quinoline compounds lacking the 7-chloro substituent suggests the ferrocenyl moiety may have an additive and/or synergistic effect. (c) 2007 Elsevier Ltd.

Mechanistic within-host models integrating blood anti-malarial drug concentrations with the parasite-time profile provide a valuable decision tool for determining dosing regimens for anti-malarial treatments, as well as a formative component of population-level drug resistance models. We reviewed published anti-malarial pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic models to identify the challenges for these complex models where parameter estimation from clinical field data is limited. The inclusion of key pharmacodynamic processes in the mechanistic structure adopted varies considerably. These include the life cycle of the parasite within the red blood cell, the action of the anti-malarial on a specific stage of the life cycle, and the reduction in parasite growth associated with immunity. With regard to estimation of the pharmacodynamic parameters, the majority of studies simply compared descriptive summaries of the simulated outputs to published observations of host and parasite responses from clinical ...
Malaria kills over 500,000 people each year and over a third of the global population is at risk of infection. Though the human race has been fighting the malaria war for over 4,000 years and we have made great strides in eliminating malaria from many countries, we are treading on the edge of what could be another malaria epidemic primarily due to widespread drug resistance. There are documented cases of resistance for every known antimalarial in use today, including Artemisinins. It is critical that we open a new window of discovery in development of next generation antimalarials that circumvent current resistance paradigms. These compounds must attack new targets, have different speeds of action, and ideally possess powerful transmission blocking potential if they are to be successful antimalarial candidates. Screening endeavors historically focused on either synthetic or natural product libraries. Recent efforts have focused on combining privilege elements of natural products into synthetically
BACKGROUND: Regular anti-malarial therapy in pregnancy, a pillar of malaria control, may affect malaria immunity, with therapeutic implications in regions of reducing transmission. METHODS: Plasma antibodies to leading vaccine candidate merozoite antigens and opsonizing antibodies to endothelial-binding and placental-binding infected erythrocytes were quantified in pregnant Melanesian women receiving sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) with chloroquine taken once, or three courses of SP with azithromycin. RESULTS: Malaria prevalence was low. Between enrolment and delivery, antibodies to recombinant antigens declined in both groups (p < 0.0001). In contrast, median levels of opsonizing antibodies did not change, although levels for some individuals changed significantly. In multivariate analysis, the malaria prevention regimen did not influence antibody levels. CONCLUSION: Different preventive anti-malarial chemotherapy regimens used during pregnancy had limited impact on malarial-immunity in a ...

None of the bicyclic compounds was significantly active against the chloroquine-resistant strain Plasmodium falciparum K1, in contrast to the tricyclic ...
In the past, malaria control efforts in sub-Saharan Africa have relied on a combination of vector control with effective treatment using chloroquine. With increasing resistance to chloroquine, attention has now turned to alternative treatment strategies to replace this failing drug. Some countries have already changed their official first-line treatment to sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine, while others are contemplating a switch to artemisinin-based combination treatments (ACTs). Although there are strong theoretical arguments in favor of switching to ACTs, the validity of these arguments in the face of financial constraints has not been previously analyzed. In this report, we use a bioeconomic model of malaria transmission and evolution of drug resistance to examine questions of optimal treatment strategy and coverage when drug resistance places an additional constraint on choices available to the policymaker.

A constant struggle between the search for new drug formulations and evolving drug-resistant parasites has marked the history of antimalarial medicine. Resistance to chloroquine has rendered the drug ineffective for instance in many parts of the world. Therapies that combine artemisinin derivatives with other companion drugs are currently being focused on by anti-malaria experts. Artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) is what these combinations are called. Acting quickly in the bloodstream, artemisinins help the patient feel better faster and clear away the parasites rapidly. By reducing the number of gametocytes - the infective version of the parasite - in the bloodstream, they may also help reduce transmission of the disease. ACT has few known side effects. Theres little documented resistance to artemisinins, and their combination with other drugs may slow resistance to these companion drugs as well. The bad thing about these combination drugs is that they are more expensive than the ...
Malaria, one of the most common vector borne human diseas-es, is a major world health issue. In 2015 alone, more than 200 million people were infected with malaria, out of which, 429,000 died. Even though artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACT) are highly effective at treating malaria infections, novel efforts towards development of vaccines to prevent transmission are still needed. Pfs25, a post-fertilization stage parasite surface antigen, is a leading transmission-blocking vaccine (TBV) candidate. It is postulated that Pfs25 anchors to the cell membrane using a glycosylphosphatidyl-inositol (GPI) linker, which itself possesses proinflammatory properties ...

The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the therapeutic potential of artesunate, an anti-malaria drug, on allergy and allergic asthma. Firstly, we studied the anti-inflammatory effects of artesunate on allergic asthma by employing a murine asthma model. In this study, female Balb/c mice were actively sensitized and challenged by ovalbumin to induce airway inflammation, mucus hypersecretion and airway hyperresponsiveness. Artesunate (3, 10, 30 mg/kg, given intraperitoneally) markly inhibited OVA-induced increases in total cell counts and eosinophil counts and IL-4, IL-5, IL-13 and eotaxin levels in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in a dose dependent manner. Artesunate also substantially (P,0.05) reduced serum levels of OVA-IgE and IgG1; whereas the levels of OVA-specific IgG2a were not significantly affected. In addition, artesunate was shown to restore the levels of Th1 related cytokines such as IFN-gamma and IL-12 back to basal level in a dose dependent manner. Histological analysis further ...
Resistance to antimalarial medicines is a threat to global efforts to control and eliminate malaria. Protecting the efficacy of the recommended malaria treatments is a top priority for malaria endemic countries and the global malaria community.
A disease once thought to be somewhat under control with the use of prescription drugs is emerging at the Thai-Cambodian border as drug resistant. The World Health Organization said Wednesday the new strain of malaria could "seriously undermine" efforts to bring the disease under control. "Surveillance systems and research studies... are providing new evidence that parasites resistant to artemisinin have emerged along the border between Cambodia and Thailand where workers walk for miles every day to clear forests," said the WHO in a statement.. "The risk that they may be infected with a drug-resistant form of malaria could set back recent successes to control the disease," it said.. Recently, artemisinin-based medication has been largely credited for improving recovery rates from the mosquito-transmitted disease.. Its estimated that Malaria kills one million people a year.. Experts thought of artemisinin-based medication as a replacement for older drugs that were quickly becoming useless as the ...

Malaria, the most prevalent and most pernicious parasitic disease of humans, is estimated to kill between one and two million people, mainly children, each year. Resistance has emerged to all classes of antimalarial drugs except the artemisinins and is responsible for a recent increase in malaria-related mortality, particularly in Africa. The de novo emergence of resistance can be prevented by the use of antimalarial drug combinations. Artemisinin-derivative combinations are particularly effective, since they act rapidly and are well tolerated and highly effective. Widespread use of these drugs could roll back malaria.. ...
Conspicuously, Nigeria will also raise import taxes for antimalarial drugs also terming them as luxury goods. For its part, Nigerias government, through the health minister, has denied the tariff hike, but a ministry of finance document suggests the additional taxes on antimalarial drugs have been approved by the president since last October. The drugs, previously tariff-free, will now attract a 20 percent rate in a move that has been widely criticized. By hobbling antimalarial drug imports, the policy could inadvertently provide a bigger market for local manufacturers of fake drugs…" (Kazeem, 1/4).. ...

The European Commission is funding a two year, €500,000 project to co-ordinate European and international research into the development of new drugs to treat malaria. The CRIMALDDI project is being led by the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and brings together key players in the antimalarial drug discovery fields including the World Health Organization, the Medicines for Malaria Venture and leading research organizations across Europe.
Abstract: Quinine is one of the most effective antimalarial drugs, although its clinical use is limited as a result of its narrow safety margin. Quinine is a substrate of the polymorphic p-glycoprotein and CYP3A4/3A5. This study aimed to examine the effects of genetic variations in ABCB1 and CYP3A5 genes, sex, demographic, and biochemical variables (serum albumin, creatinine, alanine aminotransferase and albumin) on quinine disposition among Ugandans. Quinine (600 mg) was orally administered to 140 healthy volunteers. Quinine and its metabolite 3-hydroxyquinine concentrations were determined from 16-hour postdose plasma by high-performance liquid chromatography. CYP3A5 activity was measured using quinine/3-hydroxyquinine ratio (metabolic ratio). Genotyping for a total of 20 single nucleotide polymorphisms in ABCB1 (n = 13) and CYP3A5 (n = 7) was done using Taqman and minisequencing on microarray. There were 20.5- and 13-fold variations in body weight adjusted plasma quinine concentrations (mean ...
Malaria continues to exact a great human toll in tropical settings. Antimalarial resistance is rife and the parasite inexorably develops mechanisms to outwit our best drugs, including the now first-line choice, artesunate. Novel strategies to circumvent resistance are needed. Here we detail drug development focusing on heat shock protein 90 and its central role as a chaperone. A growing body of evidence supports the role for Hsp90 inhibitors as adjunctive drugs able to restore susceptibility to traditionally efficacious compounds like chloroquine.
As this eMedTV page explains, primaquine works to prevent malaria relapses by killing the parasites in the liver. This page further discusses the mode of action of primaquine, including why it is different from other antimalarials.
In Guinea, malaria is a common threat year-round, especially during the rainy season that lasts from May to October. It affects everyone, but for children under five years of age, appropriate and immediate treatment could mean the difference between life and death.. Malaria accounts for 31% of consultations, 25% of hospitalizations, and 14% of deaths in health facilities among children according to Guinea national statistics. Unfortunately, Guinea struggles with an inconsistent supply of anti-malarial medicines, test kits, and preventive products, relying heavily on donors for obtaining such products. Even when the products arrive in country, financial and operational challenges often lead to delays in distribution to the various regions public health centers and hospitals. Every day that a health facility spends without malaria treatment drugs, lives are put at risk. Following an initial request from the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), the U.S. Presidents Malaria Initiative (PMI) and ...

The six step synthesis of the new imidazole-like heterocycle 1,6-diazaphenalene (8) from readily available cyclohexane-1,3-dione 1 and dimethyl beta-ketoglutarate 2 is described. In addition, a six step synthesis of 9-methoxy-diazaphenalene (34) from ethylacetoacetate and p-ansidine has also been accomplished. An investigation of the chemistry of 8 has been carried out and resulted in several routes to key 7-substituted-1,6-diazaphenalenes such as 10, 15, 16, and 17, as well as conditions under which to N-alkylate 8. In fact, this alkylation sequence has resulted in the preparation of the target 17. The reaction of 1,6-diazaphenalene with singlet oxygen and peracids has also been determined as well as preparation of several key derivatives in the 9-methoxy-series.*Antimalarials

Chloroquine works best when you take it on a regular schedule. For example, if you are to take it once a week to prevent malaria, it is best to take it on the same day each week. Or if you are to take two doses a day, one dose may be taken with breakfast and the other with the evening meal. Make sure that you do not miss any doses. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional.. If you miss a dose of chloroquine, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not double doses.. DOSAGE The dosage of chloroquine phosphate is often expressed in terms of equivalent chloroquine base. Each 500 mg tablet of ARALEN contains the equivalent of 300 mg chloroquine base.

Despite intensive research extending back to the 1930s, when the first synthetic antimalarial drugs made their appearance, the repertoire of clinically licensed formulations remains very limited. Moreover, widespread and increasing resistance to these drugs contributes enormously to the difficulties in controlling malaria, posing considerable intellectual, technical and humanitarian challenges. A detailed understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying resistance to these agents is emerging that should permit new drugs to be rationally developed and older ones to be engineered to regain their efficacy. This review summarizes recent progress in analysing the causes of resistance to the major antimalarial drugs and its spread. ...

Sample: NTIES measured the outcomes of treatment primarily through a method known as a "before/after" or "pre/post" panel design. From a universe of 698 SDUs, 82 SDUs were selected on a purposive basis for participation in NTIES. Of the 82, clients from 78 SDUs (for an SDU response rate of 95 percent) were included in the study. Clients were interviewed three times: shortly after their first day of treatment, when they left treatment, and then at 12 months after the end of treatment. The response rate among clients was 85 percent, with 6,593 clients participating in the Intake Questionnaire (NRIQ), 5,274 participating in the Treatment Experience Questionnaire (NTEQ), and 5,388 participating in the Postdischarge Assessment Questionnaire (NPAQ). Records abstraction was completed for 6,420 clients. The records of those respondents participating in all three interviews are flagged by the variable "IN_4411" in the NPAQ data file (Part 3).

Artemisinin combinations hold great promise for tackling malaria, but they must be used prudently to ensure they are sustainable for decades to come, says <EM>Ramanan Laxminarayan.</EM>
This study evaluated and compared the efficacy of five brands of Artemisinin Combination Therapies (ACTs); Dihydroartemisinin plus Piperaquine, Artesunate plus Amodiaquine, Artesunate plus Sulphadoxine/Pyrimethamine, Artemether plus lumefantrine and Artesunate plus mefloquine combinations in vivo in P.berghei infected swiss albino mice. The experimental animals were pre-screened to rule out infection. All drugs were administered as clinical doses for the curative test and the Mean Percentage Parasitemia level assessed daily for seven days and on day 60. The results showed that all the drugs were effective with artesunate plus amodiaquine combination being the most efficacious followed by dihydroartemisinin plus piperaquine and artesunate plus sulphadoxine plus pyrimethamine combinations followed by artesunate plus mefloquine combination and artemether plus lumefantrine combination which was the least efficacious. Results on day 60 showed increasing parasitemia levels in mice which received Artemether
Resistance-conferring PfCRT isoforms (which harbor mutation K76T and are distinguished by 3-8 additional mutations) are believed to confer resistance to the 4-amino quinoline drug chloroquine (CQ) by transporting CQ away from the drugs digestive vacuole (DV) - localized heme target. One theory then is that variable CQ transport catalyzed by different mutant PfCRTs are responsible for the range of CQ sensitivities now found for P. falciparum around the globe. Alternatively, additional mutations in drug- selected parasites may complement PfCRT in conferring a range of resistance phenotypes. In this thesis, I further optimize a convenient method for screening for CQ transport mediated by PfCRT, involving heterologous expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. I use this method and other techniques to quantify activity for all currently known naturally occurring PfCRT isoforms. My results show that chlorquine resistance (CQR) in isolates expressing certain PfCRT isoforms likely depends upon additional ...

This study shows that rectal artesunate is highly cost-effective for saving lives of severely ill patients with malaria living not only at the end of the road, but where there is no road," said Joel G. Breman, MD, senior scientific advisor at the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health and a co-author on the study. "There is now full justification to provide community health workers with life-saving rectal artesunate suppositories, training, and instructions for their use and referral follow-up, as part of the essential drug package," he said. Tozan, who has done extensive research on the social and economic aspects of malaria, said artesunate suppositories are a needed addition to community health workers arsenals in areas where malaria is a frequent childhood disease. "Pre-referral artesunate suppositories, if deployed appropriately in communities, address an important treatment gap, due to the weak state of the health-care systems in many malaria-endemic countries," ...

To improve upon the efficacy of primaquine prophylaxis for malaria (94%, Plasmodium falciparum malaria; 85%, Plasmodium vivax malaria), we administered chloroquine (300 mg weekly) in combination with primaquine (30 mg daily) to nonimmune Colombian soldiers during 16 weeks of patrol in a region of endemicity and for a further 1 week in base camp. The occurrence of symptomatic parasitemia was determined during those 17 weeks and during a further 3 weeks in base camp. The protective efficacy for the chloroquine/primaquine treatment group of 100 subjects, compared with that for the placebo treatment group of 51 subjects, was 88% (95% confidence interval [CI], 76-94) against all types of malaria, 89% (95% CI, 61-97) against P. falciparum malaria, and 88% (95% CI, 58-93) against P. vivax malaria. Two chloroquine/primaquine recipients had severe gastrointestinal distress. Comparison of these data with data from a previous study indicates that the addition of chloroquine did not increase the ...
Objectives: For the purpose of blocking transmission of Plasmodium falciparum malaria from humans to mosquitoes, a single dose of primaquine is recommended by theWHO as an addition to artemisinin combination therapy. Primaquine clears gametocytes but causes dose-dependent haemolysis in individuals with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. Evidence is needed to inform the optimal dosing of primaquine for malaria elimination programmes and for the purpose of interrupting the spread of artemisininresistant malaria. This study investigates the efficacy and safety of reducing doses of primaquine for clearance of gametocytes in participants with normal G6PD status. Methods and analysis: In this prospective, fourarmed randomised placebo-controlled double-blinded trial, children aged 1-10 years, weighing over 10 kg, with haemoglobin ≥8 g/dl and uncomplicated P falciparum malaria are treated with artemether lumefantrine and randomised to receive a dose of primaquine (0.1, 0.4 or 0.75 mg ...
The Clp chaperones and proteases play an important role in protein homeostasis in the cell. They are highly conserved across prokaryotes and found also in the mitochondria of eukaryotes and the chloroplasts of plants. They function mainly in the disaggregation, unfolding and degradation of native as well as misfolded proteins. Here, we provide a comprehensive analysis of the Clp chaperones and proteases in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The parasite contains four Clp ATPases, which we term PfClpB1, PfClpB2, PfClpC and PfClpM. One PfClpP, the proteolytic subunit, and one PfClpR, which is an inactive version of the protease, were also identified. Expression of all Clp chaperones and proteases was confirmed in blood-stage parasites. The proteins were localized to the apicoplast, a non-photosynthetic organelle that accommodates several important metabolic pathways in P. falciparum, with the exception of PfClpB2 (also known as Hsp101), which was found in the parasitophorous ...
