    Malarone chloroquine resistance


    Since some malaria strains are resistant to atovaquone/proguanil, it is not effective in all parts of the world. It must be taken with a fatty meal, or at least some milk, for the body to absorb it adequately—and to avoid painful stomach irritation, which proguanil frequently causes if taken without food.

    In areas without chloroquine resistance, prescribe proguanil 200 mg daily. In areas with chloroquine resistance, consider doxycycline or Malarone®. In theory, doxycycline can reduce the plasma concentration of anticonvulsants but there is no evidence that this happens in practice and an increase in dosage of anticonvulsants is not recommended. In areas where there is chloroquine-resistant malaria, either atovaquone/proguanil Malarone, mefloquine Lariam or doxycycline can be used for prophylaxis. Primaquine is a good alternative, but requires a G-6-PD screening blood test. Adult strength tablets 250 mg atovaquone; 100 mg proguanil per tablet PO once daily for 3 consecutive days. Guidelines recommend for chloroquine-resistant infections and for infections of unknown resistance; may also use for chloroquine-sensitive infections if necessary. For P. vivax infections, add primaquine phosphate.

    Proguanil acts as a mitochondrial sensitiser and synergizes with atovaquone. Also, stomach irritation may occur if one lies down within a half hour after taking this medicine.

Since then, chloroquine resistance has spread to nearly all areas of the world where falciparum malaria is transmitted. INDICATIONS Prevention of Malaria. MALARONE® is indicated for the prophylaxis of Plasmodium falciparum malaria, including in areas where chloroquine resistance has been reported. Treatment of Malaria.

Chloroquine resistance is widespread. Chloroquine should not be used for treatment of P. falciparum infections from areas of chloroquine resistance or malaria occurring in patients where chloroquine prophylaxis has failed. Patients infected with a resistant strains of plasmodia should be treated with another antimalarial drug.
