We herein report the design and synthesis of a novel series of thiophene- and furan-based aminoquinoline derivatives which were found to be potent antimalarials and inhibitors of β-hematin polymerization.
A new series of chalcones 5a–f were synthesized from caffeine-based aldehyde 3 and substituted acetophenones 4a–f.
The results suggest the existence of substandard anti-malarial medicines in Malawi.
To examine the impact of providing rapid diagnostic tests for malaria on fever management in private drug retail shops where most poor rural people with fever present, with the aim of reducing current massive overdiagnosis and overtreatment of malaria.
Emerging resistance to antimalarial agents raises the need for new drugs.
Eight new artemisinin-derived trioxane dimer esters 5 have been prepared and tested for antimalarial efficacy in malaria-infected mice.
The development of resistance to antimalarials is a major challenge for global malaria control. Artemisinin-based combination therapies, the newest class of antimalarials, are used worldwide but there have been reports of artemisinin resistance in Southeast Asia.
We studied the safety and efficacy of mefloquine (MQ) in women receiving CTXp and long-lasting insecticide treated nets (LLITNs).
Finally, by assessing cross resistance and generating drug resistance in the laboratory, it is expected that new medicines with acceptable resistance profiles will be forthcoming.
It is now World Health Organization (WHO) policy that drug concentrations on day 7 be measured as part of routine assessment in antimalarial drug efficacy trials.
