Quinoline Antimalarials Containing a Dibemethin Group are Active against Chloroquinone-Resistant Plasmodium falciparum and Inhibit Chloroquine Transport via the P. falciparum Chloroquine- Resistance Transporter (PfCRT)
A series of 4-amino-7-chloroquinolines with dibenzylmethylamine (dibemethin) side chains were shown to inhibit synthetic hemozoin formation. These compounds were equally active against cultures of chloroquine-sensitive (D10) and chloroquine-resistant (K1) Plasmodium falciparum. The most active compound had an IC50 value comparable to that of chloroquine, and its potency was undiminished when tested in three additional chloroquine-resistant strains. The three most active compounds exhibited...[Show more]
