    Mechanism of resistance to chloroquine


    Resistance to currently available antimalarial drugs has been confirmed in only two of the four human malaria parasite species, 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.

    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. P. vivax which also causes human malaria, appears to differ from P. falciparum in its mechanism of chloroquine resistance. Investigation of the. 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. ChloroquineResistance In Plasmodium Falciparum. With cholorquine there is emergence of resistance, which has limited its use. Primarily highly effective against febrile illness, relief is quickly achieved within 24 hours. It is easily available, well tolerated and cost effective but now uses are declining because of resistance. 1.

    Although resistance to these drugs tends to be much less widespread geographically, in some areas of the world, the impact of multi-drug resistant malaria can be extensive. Has also developed resistance to nearly all of the other currently available antimalarial drugs, such as sulfadoxine/pyrimethamine, mefloquine, halofantrine, and quinine.

    Mechanism of Action. Chloroquine is an antimalarial agent. While the drug can inhibit certain enzymes, its effect is believed to result, at least in part, from its interaction with DNA. However, the mechanism of plasmodicidal action of chloroquine is not completely certain. Activity in vitro and in vivo High-grade drug resistance of P. vivax has been documented from the Island of Papua both Indonesian and Papua New Guinea and across the Indonesia archipelago, Thailand, Myanmar, Horn of Africa, and Brazil. 96,101 The mechanism of resistance and genetic basis of chloroquine resistance in P. vivax appears to be different from that underlying. Chloroquine is an antimalarial drug. Malaria invade RBCs and degrade the hemoglobin to utilize their amino acids. However heme molecules are toxic to malarial cells, therefore malaria polymerize.
