Haffkinine Indication

For the treatment of giardiasis and cutaneous leishmaniasis and the management of malignant effusions.

Haffkinine Pharmacology

Quinacrine has been used as an antimalarial drug and as an antibiotic. It is used to treat giardiasis, a protozoal infection of the intestinal tract, and certain types of lupus erythematosus, an inflammatory disease that affects the joints, tendons, and other connective tissues and organs. Quinacrine may be injected into the space surrounding the lungs to prevent reoccurrence of pneumothorax. The exact way in which quinacrine works is unknown. It appears to interfere with the parasite's metabolism.

Haffkinine Absorption

Absorbed rapidly from the gastrointestinal tract following oral administration.
