Part1 Antimalarial drugs (抗疟药)

  • The malarial parasite(Plasmodium)(疟原虫), is a very small, single-cell blood organism.

  • It lives as a parasite in other organisms, namely man and mosquito.

  • The parasite is the cause of the tropical (热带)disease malaria(疟疾).

Anti-malarial drugs(抗疟药)

1. Biology of malarial parasite:

(1)Classification of malaria:

Human malaria is caused by 4 species of malarial parasite(plasmodium,疟原虫), include:





Common malaria in our country aresubtertian malaria(恶性疟) andtertianmalaria(间日疟).

The conditions of tertian malariaare milder, therefore, itis calledbenign malaria(良性疟)too.

Parasite Life Cycle

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs


  • Tissue schizonticides 组织裂殖体杀灭剂

    • eliminate developing or dormant liver forms(红外期裂殖体);

    • ---For control the prevention(预防) and relapse (复发)

  • Blood schizonticides 血裂殖体杀灭剂

  • act on erythrocytic parasites(红内期裂殖体);

  • ---For control the symptom (症状)

  • 3. Gametocides杀配子药kill sexual stages and prevent transmission to mosquitoes.

  • ---For control the communication(传播)

Anti-malarial drugs

(2)Life cycle of malarial parasite:

Although malaria can be transmitted by transfusion of infected blood, human beings are infected more commonly by sporozoites(子孢子) injected by the bite of infected female mosquitoes.

①Asexual propagated stage in human body;

②Sexual propagated stage in female mosquitoes.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs

①Asexualpropagatedstageinhuman body:

▲Exo-erythrocytic stage:

There are two types of sporozoites of tertian malaria(间日疟), that is:



The tackysporozoites leave the circula-tion and localized in liver cells, then they rapidly transform, multiply and develop into schizonts(裂殖体) and merozoites(裂殖子).

There are no symptoms in this stage.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs

Thebradysporozoitesenter liver cells, then go into hypnozoite(休眠期), they become to dormancytes(休眠子), which is the source of tertian malaria relapse.

  • Pyrimethamine(乙胺嘧啶)can kill tacky-sporozoites in the exo-erythrocyticstage.

  • Primaquine(伯氨喹)can kill bradyspor-ozoites to radically treattertian malaria (间日疟), and prevent tertian malaria relapse.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs

▲Erythrocytic stage:

The schizonts(裂殖体) then rupture, each releasing thousands of merozoites (裂殖子), then enter the circulation and invade erythrocytes, initiate the eryth-rocytic stage, and transform trophozoite (滋养体) and schizonts, then release many merozoites.

There are a lot of symptoms in this stage.

Chloroquine(氯喹), Quinine(奎宁), and Artemisinin(青蒿素)are effective to this stage, they can control the symptoms, and prevent attack of malaria.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs

②Sexual propagated stage in female mosquitoes:

Some erythrocytic malarial parasites differentiate into sexual forms known as gametocytes(配子体).

The ♂ and ♀ gametocytes in the gut of the mosquito combine to thezygote(合子), which develops in the gut wall to infective sporozoites(子孢子), which invades salivary gland, become the source of infection.

Pyrimethamine can inhibit the development of ♂ and ♀ gametocytes in mosquito to control transmission of malaria.

Primaquine can kill various gametocytes of subtertian and tertian malaria.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs


  • Chloroquine is a synthetic 4-aminoquinoline derivate

Anti-malarial drugs


Pharmacological effects

  • 1. Antimalarial effects: erythrocytic stage

  • Rapid schizonticidal(裂殖体杀灭剂)activity against all infections of malaria species .

  • gametocytocidal(杀配子体)against P. vivax, P. malariae and P. ovale as well as immature gametocytes (stages 1-3) of P. falciparum.

  • The effects are fast and lasting.

  • The symptoms will vanish after oral administration of chloroquine in 24~48 h, blood malarial parasites disappear in 48 ~72 h, the recurrence rate in one month is low.

  • 3. Extraintestinal amebiasis

  • Amoeba trophozoite amebic liver abscess

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs


Mechanism of actions

  • Accumulation in erythrocyte→PH↑ → malarial pigment sythesis↓

  • Haemoglobin-quinoline喹啉 compound → haemoglobin accumulate in plasmodium ↑

Adme of chloroquine

Anti-malarial drugs

ADME of chloroquine:


well absorbed after oral administration;

Tmax = 3~5 hr, t½> 1 week;

Widely distributed, the concentration in liver, lung, and kidney is higher 200 ~ 700 times than blood;

The concentration in erythrocyte is higher 20 ~ 30 times than plasma; the concentration in infected erythrocyte by malarial parasite is higher 25 times than normal erythrocyte.

Anti parasitic drugs

Anti-malarial drugs

Clinical uses:



▲to control the symptoms of benign malaria(良性疟);

▲to cure subtertian malaria(恶性疟);

▲symptomatic prevention in epidemic area(疫区的症状性预防).

  • Atovaquone, a hydroxynaphthoquinone(羟基萘醌) , was initially developed as an antimalarial agent

  • 选择性地抑制疟原虫线粒体的电子传递,减少吡啶的生物合成

  • 抑制红内期疟原虫发育

  • 对血裂殖体具有活性

  • 对早期的配子体期也有活性


  • 为双胍衍生物,在体内主要被P450 CYP2C19代谢成具有活性的环氯胍(cycloguanil)。

  • 抑制二氢叶酸还原酶,与磺胺类药物合用,后者抑制二氢叶酸合成酶,对疟原虫的叶酸代谢产生双重阻断作用,从而使其核酸合成受到抑制,细胞核不能分裂繁殖。

  • 对红内期和红外期疟原虫的发育具有活性,被认为是一种作用缓慢的杀血裂殖体药物。

Atovaquone proguanil malarone
Atovaquone/Proguanil (Malarone,马拉隆)

  • A fixed combination of atovaquone (250 mg) and proguanil (100 mg)

  • 对大多数疟原虫株(包括恶性疟、三日疟、卵型疟、间日疟的红内期和多种疟原虫的红外期)均具有活性,但对间日疟的睡眠子孢子却无作用。

  • 两药分别干扰疟原虫嘧啶生物合成的不同路径。

    • 阿托伐醌选择性地抑制疟原虫线粒体的电子转运,减少吡啶的生物合成,使线粒体的膜电位陡然降低,因而阻止了疟原虫的繁殖;

    • 环氯胍则通过抑制疟原虫的二氢叶酸还原酶,耗竭嘧啶核酸库存,从而导致核酸合成和细胞复制受到破坏。、

  • 尽管机制还不十分清楚,但二药对细胞内不同发育期的疟原虫是具有协同作用的,研究表明,由于氯胍的配合,阿托伐醌只需较低的血浓度就能显著降低疟原早线粒体的膜电位。

  • 适应证:预防和治疗脑型疟疾(恶性疟疾) (包括对氯喹已产生耐药性的脑型疟疾)

Part2 Anti-schistosomiasis drugs(抗血吸虫药)

Anti parasitic drugs

  • Schistosomiasis(血吸虫病) is caused by Schistosoma(血吸虫, 裂体吸虫) infection.

  • There are five kinds of Schistosoma caused Schistosomiasis of human:

    • S. japonia(日本血吸虫),

    • S. heamatobium (埃及血吸虫),

    • S. mansoni(曼索血吸虫),

    • S. intercalatum(间插血吸虫)

    • S. mekongi (湄公血吸虫).

  • In our country, the schistosomiasis is caused mainly by S. japonia.

Anti-schistosomiasis drugs

  • In the past, the drug treated schisto-somiasis was PAT(酒石酸锑钾, potassium antimony tartrate), its course of treat-ment was longer, the toxicity larger, need iv administration, and the ADRs were severe.

  • Since 1970’, praziquantel(吡喹酮) had bediscovered, because its ADRs is less, praziquantel became the main drug to treat schistosomiasis.


Anti-schistosomiasis drugs



(1)Anti-parasite effects:

It is a highly effective and broad spectrum anti-parasite drug.

  • schistosoma(血吸虫)

  • clonorchis sinensis(华支睾吸虫, 即“肝吸虫”)

  • lung fluke(肺吸虫)

  • fasciolopsis(布氏姜片虫, 即“肠吸虫”)

  • certain intestinal parasites(e.g. tapeworm(绦虫).

    Mechanism of anti-schistosoma effects:

    It can increase the membrane permeability to certain monovalent and divalent cation, particularly Ca2+, to cause schistosoma muscular contraction and spastic paralysis.

2 clinical uses

Anti-schistosomiasis drugs

(2)Clinical uses:



It is effective to both acute & chronicschistosomiasis.

To acute schistosomiasis:

It is to bring down the fever, and alleviate the systematic symptoms fast, the late results reach 90%;

To chronic schistosomiasis:

The curative effect is well too, only 1~2 days of course of treatment, the late results reach 90% too.

To the later period patients with cardiac and hepatic complication:

can accept the course of treatment smoothly.
