Abstract

Summary

One thousand and twenty Hondurans were treated for acute malaria with a single oral dosage of either amodiaquin (Camoquin), chloroquine (Aralen), hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) or pyrimethamine (Daraprim). In general, clinical response was excellent, treatment failures were few, relapses were infrequent, drug toxicity was negligible. The results with pyrimethamine were not equal to the results obtained with the three 4-aminoquinolines. Obviously, it is of great advantage to have several antiplasmodial agents that can be used in single oral dosage for mass treatment.
