    Although their therapeutic and toxic doses differ, they are related drugs with similar clinical indications for use and similar manifestations of retinal toxicity.

    What Is Plaquenil? Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is an antimalarial medication used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites, which enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Plaquenil is also used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Plaquenil is available in generic form. What Are Side Effects of Plaquenil? Aug 29, 2014 Plaquenil, hydroxychloroquine HCQ, is an anti-malarial medication that has been proven to be useful in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis RA, systemic lupus erythematosus SLE and other inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The Risk of Retinal Toxicity with Plaquenil. The side effect that is of greatest concern is retinal toxicity. Retinal toxicity of Plaquenil may manifest itself with subtle disturbances of the retinal pigment epithelium which may eventually lead to complete destruction of the macula in the form of bull’s-eye maculopathy.

    Retinopathy may be asymptomatic or may cause central or paracentral scotomas leading to difficulty reading or performing fine visual tasks (due to parafoveal metamorphopsia).

The most common tests to detect hydroxychloroquine toxicity have been visual acuity, visual fields Amsler grid, automated visual field, color vision testing, full-field electroretinography ERG, and multifocal electroretinography mfERG.6, 7 Because of the localized nature of the defects, mfERG seems to be better than the full-field ERG in.

    Jan 05, 2020 Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy is most influenced by daily dose and duration of use. Risk for toxicity is less with 5.0 mg/kg real weight/day for hydroxychloroquine and 2.3 mg/kg real weight/day for chloroquine. Patients are at low risk during the first 5 years of treatment. End stage hydroxychloroquine toxicity leads to widespread RPE and retinal atrophy with a loss of central vision, peripheral vision, and night vision. Plaquenil, widely used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions, is very effective, and “the risk of toxicity in the first five years for someone without special risk factors is very low,” Dr. Marmor said. However, risk increases with duration of use.

    CST - Chloroquine Chloroquine CQ is a lysosomotropic agent with an extensive range of biological effects 1. Historically known for its anti-malarial activity, chloroquine is a widely used biological research tool for studying autophagy inhibition. Research studies demonstrate that chloroquine accumulates in acidic lysosomes and increases the lysosomal pH.

    Combination of ERK and autophagy inhibition as a treatment.
