Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chloroquine is a 4-aminoquinoline drug used in the treatment or prevention of malaria. Chloroquine (CQ), N'-(7-chloroquinolin-4-yl)-N, N-diethyl-pentane-1,4-diamine was discovered in 1934 by Hans Andersag and co-workers at the Bayer laboratories who named it "Resochin." It was ignored for a decade because it was considered too toxic for human use. During World War II United States government-sponsored clinical trials for anti-malarial drug development showed unequivocally that CQ has a significant therapeutic value as an anti-malarial drug. It was introduced into clinical practice in 1947 for the prophylactic treatment of malaria.show more
