    Chloroquine resistance in plasmodium falciparum


    Chloroquine has been extensively used in mass drug administrations, which may have contributed to the emergence and spread of resistance. It is recommended to check if chloroquine is still effective in the region prior to using it.

    In retrospect, the development of resistance to chloroquine by Plasmodium falciparum was inevitable given its widespread use over a period now approaching 40 years, and the enormous and progressive quantity of the drug consumed the WHO1 gives figures of 265 052 kg base actual consumption in 1978 and 351 229 kg base estimated require- ments in 1985, representing respectively 177 million and 234 million adult therapeu- tic doses. Development of Chloroquine Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum Drug resistance is the ability of a parasite to survive despite the presence of a drug that is meant to kill it in toxic levels. Resistance developed by most parasites that were initially sensitive to drugs mostly result from mutations in the genes responsive to the drug. The Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance transporter is associated with the ex vivo P. falciparum African parasite response to pyronaridine. Parasit. Vectors 9, 77 2016.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend against treatment of malaria with chloroquine alone due to more effective combinations. In areas where resistance is present, other antimalarials, such as mefloquine or atovaquone, may be used instead.
