Lets see what the news say and if it’s real or fake news just for scams. The antimalarial drug chloroquine phosphate can’t kill coronavirus directly. It is however being claimed that it can help the body in getting rid of the virus in initial stage. Ocular safety of hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and intestinal problems Plaquenil myasthenia gravis Chloroquine and proguanil pregnancy In rodent models, sterile protection against malaria can be achieved by the inoculation of intact sporozoites while treating the animals concomitantly with chloroquine, 10 a drug that kills. Years after three immunizations under chloroquine prophy-laxis by bites from 12 to 15 PfSPZ-infected mosquitoes at monthly intervals chemoprophylaxis and sporozoites CPS.5,6 Chloroquine kills disease-associated blood stages but does not affect pre-erythrocytic sporozoite or liver stages, which are exposed to the host’s immune system. CPS- A severe eye problem has happened with chloroquine. This may lead to lasting eyesight problems. The risk may be higher if you have some types of eye or kidney problems. The risk may also be higher with some doses of chloroquine, if you use chloroquine for longer than 5 years, or if you take certain other drugs like tamoxifen. So as lysosomes inside the white blood cells can get rid of harmful foreign viruses and bacterias entering into the body, thus having more acidity means more ability to disrupt the virus and kill it (or denature it). It’s being claimed that chloroquine increases the acidic properties of the lysosomes inside the cell. Chloroquine kills sporozoites Novel approaches to whole sporozoite vaccination against malaria., Safety, Immunogenicity, and Protective Efficacy of Intradermal. Aralen mechanism of action Schizonticide a drug that selectively kills schizonts of a sporozoan parasite in this case, the malarial parasite. Tissue schizonticides kill exoerythrocytic forms of schizonts, such as those in the liver e.g. primaquine. Blood schizonticides kill schizonts only in the erythrocyte e.g. chloroquine, quinine. Antimalarial Drugs — Quinine, Quinidine, Sulfonamides, Chloroquine and More. Chloroquine Indications, Side Effects, Warnings -. Protection against malaria after immunization by chloroquine.. The late 1970s–early 1980s using infection under chloroquine CQ prophylaxis 14–16. The rationale is that administration of antimalarials with sporozoites allows parasite infection of the liver but prevents the erythrocytic phase where clinical disease occurs. In the case of CPS with CQ, which selectively kills asex-ual However, the effect of chloroquine on the sporogonic cycle is probably of different nature as the drug does not kill parasites during this stage of development where environment and metabolism are different. Chloroquine has applications other than anti-malarial use, namely as an anti-inflammatory drug. Chloroquine phosphate is approved for suppressive treatment prophylaxis and for acute attacks of malaria due to P. vivax, P. malariae, P. ovale, and susceptible strains of Pf. Chloroquine is a blood-stage schizonticide, highly active against replicating forms of blood-stage drug- sensitive parasites.
