    Chloroquine failure deaths in africa


    Resistance among the parasites has developed to several antimalarial medications; for example, chloroquine-resistant P. Falciparum has spread to most malarial areas, and resistance to artemisinin has become a problem in some parts of Southeast Asia. falciparum infection can cause recurrent fever every 36–48 hours, or a less pronounced and almost continuous fever.

    One million people die each year from malaria, mostly children and pregnant women. Nine in ten of these deaths are in Africa Gavin Yamey deputy physician editor BestTreatments, BMJ Publishing Group, London WC1H 9JR. Many children who get the disease but survive it are left with brain damage or learning difficulties. Drug-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum, which causes the most lethal form of the disease, had swept through the African continent, rendering the first-line treatment, chloroquine, nearly useless. The dramatic impact of chloroquine resistance on malaria mortality has long been underestimated because only a low proportion of malaria attacks are potentially lethal among persons continuously exposed since birth to high levels of transmission. There is an urgent need to change treatment policies in Africa.

    Although rare in young children with severe malaria, acute respiratory distress syndrome occurs in 5–25% of adults and up to 29% of pregnant women. falciparum may result in cerebral malaria, a form of severe malaria that involves encephalopathy. First, sporozoites enter the bloodstream, and migrate to the liver. The classic symptom of malaria is paroxysm—a cyclical occurrence of sudden coldness followed by shivering and then fever and sweating, occurring every two days (tertian fever) in P. ovale infections, and every three days (quartan fever) for P. Individuals with cerebral malaria frequently exhibit neurological symptoms, including abnormal posturing, nystagmus, conjugate gaze palsy (failure of the eyes to turn together in the same direction), opisthotonus, seizures, or coma. Among these is the development of respiratory distress, which occurs in up to 25% of adults and 40% of children with severe P. Possible causes include respiratory compensation of metabolic acidosis, noncardiogenic pulmonary oedema, concomitant pneumonia, and severe anaemia.

    It is one of the leading causes of death in Africa, with an estimated 554,000 deaths in 2012. Children under five years of age are highly susceptible to the disease with over 41% of children deaths attributed to malaria alone. Of all the global deaths from malaria, 92% of them were found in Africa. Chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum is found in all parts of the world except the Caribbean and countries west of the Panama Canal. Although chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum predominates in Africa, it is found in combination with chloroquine-sensitive P. vivax malaria in South America and Asia.
