    Why is p falciparum resistance to chloroquine


    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.

    Revised Recommendations for Preventing Malaria in Travelers to Areas with Chloroquine-Resistant Plasmodium falciparum. Since 1982, CDC has recommended the combined use of chloroquine and Fansidar pyrimethamine-sulfadoxine as the primary chemoprophylactic regimen for travelers to areas with transmission of chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum CRPF. These reports of chloroquine-prophylaxis or treatment failures were substantiated by serial parasitologic and clinical observations of each infection and, when available, in-vitro confirmation of drug resistance. CDC continues to monitor the status of chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum malaria in East Africa 2. Treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria, only in areas where P. falciparum is still sensitive to chloroquine Central America, Haiti and Dominican Republic – Prophylaxis of falciparum malaria for non-immune individuals, only in areas where resistance to chloroquine is moderate and always in combination with proguanil. Forms and.

    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.

  6. 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.

    Malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum is a severe infectious disease with high mortality and morbidity rates worldwide. Chloroquine CQ is a widely used antimalarial agent, but the emergence and spread of CQ-resistant parasites is a growing global. A point mutation in the P. falciparum chloroquine-resistance transporter gene PfCRT is associated with chloroquine-resistant falciparum malaria. 8 We previously measured the prevalence of this. We believe that our results, besides shedding light on the mechanism of chloroquine resistance in P. falciparum, have implications for the development of novel therapies against resistant malaria strains and demonstrate the usefulness of an approach combining systems biology strategies with structural bioinformatics and experimental data.
