    How it works

    Amodiaquine is a Mannich base 4-aminoquinoline that is similar in structure and mechanism of action to chloroquine. Amodiaquine is converted to its active metabolite desethylamodiaquine and is thought to act by accumulating inside the parasite food vacuole and interfering with haem detoxification. The drug also inhibits the glutathione-dependent destruction of ferriprotoporphyrin IX in the malaria parasite, resulting in the accumulation of this peptide, which is toxic for the parasite. Amodiaquine is effective against some parasite strains that are resistant to chloroquine, although some crossresistance exists .
