Therapeutics review: the use of parenteral drugs for falciparum malaria

, : Therapeutics review: the use of parenteral drugs for falciparum malaria. Central African Journal of Medicine 36(10): 259-263

In this general article 3 different regimens for the treatment of severe falciparum malaria are discussed. The use of parenteral chloroquine is balanced against the emergence of chloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum. Quinine, given by the intramuscular or intravenous route is the mainstay of treatment of severe chloroquine resistant falciparum malaria, but quinidine is considered as (or more) effective than quinine.
