    -Suppressive therapy should continue for 8 weeks after leaving the endemic area. Approved indication: For the suppressive treatment of malaria due to Plasmodium vivax, P malariae, P ovale, and susceptible strains of P falciparum CDC Recommendations: 300 mg base (500 mg salt) orally once a week Comments: -For prophylaxis only in areas with chloroquine-sensitive malaria -Prophylaxis should start 1 to 2 weeks before travel to malarious areas; should continue weekly (same day each week) while in malarious areas and for 4 weeks after leaving such areas.

    Chloroquine inhibits the intracellular multiplication of Legionella pneumophila by limiting the availability of iron. A potential new mechanism for the therapeutic effect of chloroquine against intracellular pathogens. To understand how chloroquine CQ enhances transgene expression in polycation-based, nonviral gene delivery systems, a number of CQ analogues with variations in the aliphatic amino side chain or in the aromatic ring are synthesized and investigated. Our studies indicate that the aliphatic amino moiety of CQ Parasitology Today, vol. 6, no. 3, 1990 77 Chloroquine as Intercalator a Hypothesis Revived S. R. Meshnick The mode of action of chloroquine is still controversial. Proposed mechanisms of action include I DNA intercalation, 2 lysosome accumulation and 3 binding to ferriprotoporphyrin IX.

    Approved indication: For acute attacks of malaria due to P vivax, P malariae, P ovale, and susceptible strains of P falciparum CDC Recommendations: Chloroquine-sensitive uncomplicated malaria (Plasmodium species or species not identified): 600 mg base (1 g salt) orally at once, followed by 300 mg base (500 mg salt) orally at 6, 24, and 48 hours Total dose: 1.5 g base (2.5 g salt) Comments: -For the treatment of uncomplicated malaria due to chloroquine-sensitive P vivax or P ovale, concomitant treatment with primaquine phosphate is recommended. 60 kg or more: 1 g chloroquine phosphate (600 mg base) orally as an initial dose, followed by 500 mg chloroquine phosphate (300 mg base) orally after 6 to 8 hours, then 500 mg chloroquine phosphate (300 mg base) orally once a day on the next 2 consecutive days Total dose: 2.5 g chloroquine phosphate (1.5 g base) in 3 days Less than 60 kg: First dose: 16.7 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (10 mg base/kg) orally Second dose (6 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Third dose (24 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Fourth dose (36 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Total dose: 41.7 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (25 mg base/kg) in 3 days Comments: -Concomitant therapy with an 8-aminoquinoline compound is necessary for radical cure of malaria due to P vivax and P malariae.

  7. Abstract The first proposed hypothesis about the mechanism of chloroquine CQ action on malaria parasites is DNA intercalation hypothesis which indicates that the site of CQ action is within the nucleus. Later on the interest of research was shifted from nucleus to lysosome due to the report of CQ accumulation within lysosome.

    We have shown that, at given small concentrations, intercalation of chloroquine strongly facilitates the comet tail formation. At the same time, some part of DNA about 8 % in the nucleoids exits very fast independently on chloroquine, while the largest part of DNA about three quarters does not exit at all. Another convincing argument that chloroquine acts by intercalation was made by O'Brien and Hahn6. These authors made models of chloroquine and DNA the old-fashioned hand-made type, and proposed that chloroquine bound to DNA in two ways Fig. 2. First, the aromatic quinotine rings stacked between adjacent base pairs like other intercalators. Uses Chloroquine is used to prevent or treat malaria caused by mosquito bites in countries where malaria is common. Malaria parasites can enter the body through these mosquito bites, and then live.
