The development of this quantity has been guided via own convictions. event within the box of experimental chemotherapy, either within the pharmaceutical and academia, has confident us that contemporary quantum technological advances in biochemistry, molecular biology, and immunology will enable and, certainly, necessitate an more and more larger use of rational drug improvement sooner or later than has been the customized during the past. partly l, for that reason, we requested our participants to supply designated studies protecting the biology of the malaria parasites and their relation with their hosts, the experimental methods together with tradition concepts which are essential to take a drug from fundamental screening to medical trial, and an account of antimalarial drug resistance. Our moment conviction is that many examine staff are all too loath to benefit from the teachings of the earlier. as a result we requested the individuals to half 2 of this quantity to study very completely the generally scattered yet voluminous literature on these few chemical teams that experience supplied the antimalarial medicines in scientific use today. a lot may be realized from the historical past in their improvement and the issues that experience arisen with them in guy. a few certainly should have a lot to provide in the event that they will be deployed in higher methods than they're at the moment. this question has been taken up via a number of authors.

26 E. W. MCCHESNEY and C. D. FITCH f) Man Data on the human tissue distribution of CQ are available, mostly from cases in which considerable overdoses were taken, as in accidental poisoning in children or in instances in which the drug was taken by adults with deliberate suicidal intent. In this connection, VIALA et al. (1972) have concluded that CQ intoxication is irreversible if the blood concentration exceeds 4,000-6,000 Ilg/litre and, as noted above, WENIGER (1979) has estimated that the fatal dose of CQ for man is only of the order of 30 mg/kg.

In animals killed after 3-6 months of treatment, large concentrations of CQ plus desethyl-CQ were found in the iris (1,680-3,216 mg/kg), ciliary body (2,070-7,440 mg/kg), and choroid (5,52014,224 mg/kg). Much smaller amounts were found in the retina (0-24 mg/kg) and sclera (144-342 mg/kg), but none in cornea, lens or optic nerve. Thus, the lesions found did not correlate convincingly with high drug concentrations. Other attempts at producing retinopathy or keratopathy in experimental animals by the administration of the 4-aminoquinolines (MCCONNELL et al.

VARGA concluded that there is no basis for the assumption that the localisation of CQ in these organs is determined by binding to nucleic acids. 2. Eye The extent to which CQ localises in the eye, and to which specific structures it binds preferentially, are obviously of the greatest importance in connection with the retinopathy problem. This question has been studied largely in experimental animals, but limited human data are available. As early as 1959 PAU and BAUMER reported the existence of corneal deposits in RA patients being treated with CQ, and they concluded that these deposits were definitely related in composition to the drug or its degradation products.
