Antimalarialmedications, also known as antimalarials, are designed to prevent or curemalaria. Such drugs may be used for some or all of the following:
Treatment ofmalaria in individuals with suspected or confirmed infection
Prevention ofinfection in individuals visiting a malaria-endemic region who have no immunity(Malaria prophylaxis)
Routineintermittent treatment of certain groups in endemic regions (Intermittentpreventive therapy)
Some antimalarialagents, particularly chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, are also used in thetreatment of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus-associated arthritis.
Current practicein treating cases of malaria is based on the concept of combination therapy,since this offers several advantages, including reduced risk of treatmentfailure, reduced risk of developing resistance, enhanced convenience, andreduced side-effects. Prompt parasitological confirmation by microscopy, oralternatively by rapid diagnostic tests, is recommended in all patientssuspected of malaria before treatment is started. Treatment solely on the basisof clinical suspicion should only be considered when a parasitologicaldiagnosis is not accessible.
Antiparasitics area class of medications which are indicated for the treatment of parasiticdiseases, such as those caused by helminths,amoeba, ectoparasites, parasiticfungi, and protozoa, among others. Antiparasitics target the parasitic agentsof the infections by destroying them or inhibiting their growth; they areusually effective against a limited number of parasites within a particularclass. Antiparasitics are one of the antimicrobial drugs which includeantibiotics that target bacteria, and antifungals that target fungi. They maybe administered orally, intravenously or topically.
Broad-spectrumantiparasitics, analogous to broad-spectrum antibiotics for bacteria, areantiparasitic drugs with efficacy in treating a wide range of parasitic infectionscaused by parasites from different classes.
