  • 1.  Camoquin, a 4-aminoquinoline compound, was administered in a single dose of 10 mgm/kg. to 30 patients with vivax malaria and to 20 with falciparum malaria.
  • 2.  Among both the vivax and the falciparum patients, all temperatures were normal within 48 hours of treatment; the average temperature was normal by 32 hours after treatment.
  • 3.  Parasitemia disappeared quickly, the time averaging 37 hours for vivax cases, 30 hours for falciparum cases.
  • 4.  Only one vivax clinical relapse occurred, although patients were under observation for periods of 6 to 16 months.
  • 5.  Camoquin is a relatively non-toxic drug.
  • 6.  Camoquin deserves more widespread use in malarious areas throughout the world, and should be particularly valuable in rural locations and/or when hospitalization of the patient is not feasible.
