Nonimmune Aotus monkeys infected with Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax were cured of their infections when treated with a single oral dose of 5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg of the 2-aminomethylphenol, JPC-3210, respectively.

The increasing incidence of antimalarial drug resistance to the first-line artemisinin combination therapies underpins an urgent need for new antimalarial drugs, ideally with a novel mode of action. The recently developed 2-aminomethylphenol, JPC-3210, (MMV 892646) is an erythrocytic schizonticide with potent in vitro antimalarial activity against multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum lines, low cytotoxicity, potent in vivo efficacy against murine malaria, and favourable preclinical pharmacokinetics including a lengthy plasma elimination half-life.
