Paludrine Indication

For the causal prevention and suppression of malaria caused by susceptible strains of P. falciparum and other species of Plasmodium found in some geographical areas of the world.

Paludrine Pharmacology

Proguanil is a biguanide derivative that is converted to an active metabolite called cycloguanil pamoate. It exerts its antimalarial action by inhibiting parasitic dihydrofolate reductase enzyme. It has causal prophylactic and suppressive activity against P. falciparum and cures the acute infection. It is also effective in suppressing the clinical attacks of vivax malaria. However it is slower compared to 4-aminoquinolines.

Paludrine Absorption

Rapidly and well absorbed in humans following oral doses ranging from 50 to 500 mg.
