2014-08-27 03:36:35 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Drug resistance to a range of antimalarial treatments has become widespread in Africa, South East Asia and South America. Because the rapid spread of drug resistance threatens a public health disaster in these areas of the world and to comply with the WHO-Roll Back Malaria policy of using Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACT), there is a need to develop new, safe, effective and affordable ACT.

Chlorproguanil-dapsone-artesunate (CDA)is a new ACT that is being developed for the treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria in Africa.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A sulfone active against a wide range of bacteria but mainly employed for its actions against MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE. Its mechanism of action is probably similar to that of the SULFONAMIDES which involves inhibition of folic acid synthesis in susceptible organisms. It is also used with PYRIMETHAMINE in the treatment of malaria. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p157-8)

Malaria caused by PLASMODIUM VIVAX. This form of malaria is less severe than MALARIA, FALCIPARUM, but there is a higher probability for relapses to occur. Febrile paroxysms often occur every other day.

Vaccines made from antigens arising from any of the four strains of Plasmodium which cause malaria in humans, or from P. berghei which causes malaria in rodents.

A protozoan parasite that causes vivax malaria (MALARIA, VIVAX). This species is found almost everywhere malaria is endemic and is the only one that has a range extending into the temperate regions.
