    Searches for new drugs against chloroquine-resistant malaria, especially as they relate to analogues of chloroquine and chemosensitizing agents against the different forms of P. falciparum and P. vivax, should benefit greatly from research work in this area Chloroquine was first discovered in the 1930s in Germany and began to be widely used as an anti-malaria post-World War II, in the late 1940s. However, resistance to the drug also rapidly emerged, with the first cases of Plasmodium falciparum not being cured by administration of chloroquine being reported in the 1950s. The WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network WWARN is a collaborative platform generating innovative resources and reliable evidence to inform the malaria community on the factors affecting the efficacy of antimalarial medicines.

    Travelers going to malaria-endemic countries are at risk for contracting the disease, and almost all of the approximately 1,700 cases per year of malaria in the United States are imported. Malaria is a major international public health problem; 91 countries reported an estimated 216 million infections and 445,000 deaths in 2016, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) World Malaria Report 2017.

Since then, chloroquine resistance has spread to nearly all areas of the world where falciparum malaria is transmitted.

    • On the Mechanism of Chloroquine Resistance in Plasmodium falciparum.

    This deficiency explains the reduced ability of chloroquine-resistant parasites to concentrate chloroquine, and it suggests that chloroquine resistance is due to a decrease in the number, affinity, or accessibility of chloroquine receptor sites on a constituent of the malaria parasite. History of Chloroquine-Resistant P. falciparum Malaria. Data are from the Worldwide Antimalarial Resistance Network. Although the use of antimalarial drugs has a long history, the emergence of. The malaria parasite's development of resistance to the drug chloroquine is a major threat to world health. A protein likely to be involved in chloroquine resistance has recently been identified; this discovery is important, but raises as many questions as it answers.
