Additional treatment with an anti-malarial agent active against these forms, such as an 8-aminoquinoline.

    These compounds belonged to a new class of antimalarials, the four-amino quinolines. Research by German scientists to discover a substitute for quinine led to the synthesis in 1934 of Resochin (chloroquine) and Sontochin (3-methyl-chloroquine).

Sep 15, 2001 Even before new therapeutic pursuits bear fruit, the identification of PfCRT as the central determinant of chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum malaria provides a molecular marker that can be used for surveillance of resistance to inform drug treatment and prophylaxis policies. The PfCRT K76T mutation can be detected quickly by use of robust polymerase chain reaction–based assays on dried filter paper blood spots.
