Chloroquine is a medication which is used to prevent and treat malaria in areas where malaria remains sensitive to its effects. Certain types of malaria, resistant strains, and complicated cases typically require different or additional medication. It is also occasionally used for amebiasis that is occurring outside the intestines, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus erythematosus. Chloroquine is also being studied for the treatment of COVID-19.
Chloroquine is a member of the drug class 4-aminoquinoline and it was discovered in 1934, by chemist Hans Andersag and coworkers at the Bayer laboratories, who named it Resochin. Chloroquine has also significant antiviral effects. It increases late endosomal and lysosomal pH, resulting in the impaired release of the virus from the endosome or lysosome – the release of the virus requires a low pH. The virus is therefore unable to replicate (releasing its genetic material into the cell).
