    Areas of chloroquine resistant malaria


    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.

    Jul 23, 2014 Chloroquine or multidrug-resistant falciparum malaria. Quinine plus doxycycline. 300 mg quinine 100 mg doxycycline. Quinine 2 tablets 3 times a day for 3 days, accompanied by 1 tablet of doxycycline twice daily for 7 days. Recommended where no chloroquine resistance present. NB now applies to very few geographical areas. Chloroquine. P. falciparum or Species Not Identified – Acquired in Areas Without Chloroquine Resistance. For P. falciparum infections acquired in areas without chloroquine-resistant strains, which include Central America west of the Panama Canal, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, patients can be treated with oral chloroquine. A chloroquine dose of 600 mg base = 1,000 mg salt should be given initially. Areas with chloroquine-sensitive malaria include many Latin American countries where there is predominantly P. vivax malaria. Chloroquine-sensitive P. falciparum is present in the Caribbean and Central American countries west of the Panama Canal.

    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.

  4. Chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum first developed independently in three to four areas in Southeast Asia, Oceania, and South America in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Since then, chloroquine resistance has spread to nearly all areas of the world where falciparum malaria is transmitted.

    Resistant P. vivax was not reported until 1989 in Papua New Guinea 9, although this species accounts for roughly as many cases of malaria as P. falciparum and was exposed to similar high levels of chloroquine pressure. Today, resistant P. vivax is present in several regions of Southeast Asia 10. Prevention and containment activities need to build on, expand and accelerate ongoing national efforts to control and eliminate malaria. In areas of low transmission where antimalarial drug resistance is present, countries should target rapid elimination of falciparum malaria to limit the risk of spread and minimize the impact of resistance in. Feb 28, 2019 Resistance to chloroquine, the first widely used antimalarial drug, first arose in the Greater Mekong shortly after World War II. Chloroquine-resistant strains eventually spread to Africa, which carries more than 90 percent of the global malaria burden.

    My husband has been taking Plaquenil (generic hydroxychloroquine) for almost 2 yrs., under a rheumatologist's care. He became very ill, and was diagnosed w/ viral meningial encephalitis.

    After seeing my rheumatologist, he wants to put me on Plaquenil, mostly because I complained of recent onset of thinning/loss of hair which is freaking me out.
