    Fluoroquinolone use and chloroquine resistance development


    According to legend it was first brought to Europe by a Countess who had been treated with it in Peru in the 1600s. In 1820, two French chemists isolated quinine from the cinchona bark and quinine became a treatment of reference for intermittent fever throughout the world. Quinine remains an important and effective treatment for malaria today, despite sporadic observations of quinine resistance.

    Because the use of broad-spectrum antibiotics encourages the spread of multidrug-resistant strains and the development of Clostridium difficile infections, treatment guidelines often recommend minimizing the use of fluoroquinolones and other broad-spectrum antibiotics in less severe infections and in those in which risk factors for multidrug resistance are not present. The European Medicines Agency’s EMA Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee has recommended restricting the use of fluoroquinolone and quinolone antibiotics used by mouth, injection or inhalation following a review of disabling and potentially long-lasting side effects reported with these review incorporated the views of patients, healthcare professionals and academics. Antibiotic resistance has necessitated fluoroquinolone use but little is known about the selective forces and resistance trajectory in malaria-endemic settings, where selection from the antimalarial chloroquine for fluoroquinolone-resistant bacteria has been proposed. Antimicrobial resistance was studied in fecal Escherichia coli isolates in a Nigerian community. Quinolone-resistance.

    These compounds belonged to a new class of antimalarials, the four-amino quinolines. Research by German scientists to discover a substitute for quinine led to the synthesis in 1934 of Resochin (chloroquine) and Sontochin (3-methyl-chloroquine).

  7. Oct 17, 1998 Therefore fluoroquinolone resistance is more likely to occur. For Staphylococcus aureus clonal spread of these bacteria in institutions has always been a problem and now fluoroquinolone resistance has been added to methicillin resistance. Good infection control will reduce the transfer and prevalence of these strains.

    Preferential Use of Nitrofurantoin Over Fluoroquinolones for Acute Uncomplicated Cystitis and Outpatient Escherichia coli Resistance in an Integrated Healthcare System Introduction. Quinolones have been a widely used class of synthetic antimicrobials. 1, 2 The initial member of the class, nalidixic acid, was identified as a byproduct of chloroquine synthesis in 1962 and had limited clinical use because it was only sufficient for treatment of urinary tract infections and because of the early emergence of resistance. 3 Chemical modifications of the core. Despite prescribing guidelines now recommending reserving fluoroquinolone use, resistance continues to rise and is a major problem encountered in the clinical setting. The percentage of E. coli isolates in the UK resistant to fluoroquinolones rose from 6% to 20% from 2001 to 2006 and remained at about 17% for the rest of the decade

    Chloroquine is the generic form of the brand-name prescription medicine Aralen, which is used to prevent and treat malaria — a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite — and to treat amebiasis, an infection of the intestines caused by a parasite.

    The “heart-sinking” consequences of HC retinopathy The patient was on 400mg dose, which was equivalent to 7.3mg/kg/day. Current guidelines suggest that a dose of more than 5mg/kg/day is a risk factor for toxicity. He shared the case during his presentation Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy more prevalent than we thought? HC can damage the outer retina photoreceptors and retinal pigment epithelium.
