Antimalarial drugs are agents that are used to treat malaria. If an infected anopheles mosquito bites a person, then the infection of a certain protozoan is transmitted to the person. This condition is known as malaria. A malarial patient experiences anemia, chills, and fever. Malaria can be prevented by the use of antimalarial drugs as a prophylactic measure before entering an endemic area. Different antimalarial drugs are used for different stages of the life cycle of the parasite. Some antimalarial drugs are effective against acute attack of malaria, while some are used as prophylactic agents that kill the parasite when it enters the host body. Combination drugs are available for the treatment of malaria. These drugs contain more than one antimalarial drug in one dose or pill. Combination antimalarial drugs provide better antimicrobial action due to increased compliance that prevents drug resistant strains of bacteria from emerging. Prevention and treatment of malaria can be done using antimalarial quinolones. The parasite degrades hemoglobin during the blood stages of the life cycle of malaria. Free heme is released due to degradation of hemoglobin, which is toxic to the parasite. The polymerization process of free heme leads to formation of non-toxic hemozoin. Antimalarial quinolones interfere with this polymerization by accumulating toxic free heme and kills the malaria parasite.
