    Chloroquine and primaquine treatment


    Malaria parasites can enter the body through these mosquito bites, and then live in body tissues such as red blood cells or the liver. This medication is used to kill the malaria parasites living inside red blood cells.

    Aug 18, 2015 The treatment of vivax malaria with chloroquine, a blood schizonticide, and primaquine active against latent tissue forms of P. vivax or so-called hypnozoites is very effective in reducing parasitemia and some of the symptoms caused by the Plasmodium infection, such as fever and algic symptoms. Primaquine is used after other medications such as chloroquine have killed the malaria parasites living inside red blood cells. Primaquine then kills the malaria parasites living in other body tissues. This prevents the return of the infection. Both drugs are needed for a complete cure. Primaquine phosphate is an 8-amino-quinoline compound which eliminates tissue exoerythrocytic infection. Thereby, it prevents the development of the blood erythrocytic forms of the parasite which are responsible for relapses in vivax malaria. Primaquine phosphate is also active against gametocytes of Plasmodium falciparum.

    Both drugs may be needed for a complete cure and to prevent the return of infection (relapse). In some cases, you may need to take a different medication (such as primaquine) to kill the malaria parasites living in other body tissues.

    Primaquine is active as a chloroquine-resistance reverser at concentrations that could be clinically relevant. As primaquine and chloroquine are already used together in the treatment of P. vivax, this is potentially a cheap way of reviving and extending the life of chloroquine.
