Blood-pressure Medications Nov 15, 2015 Summary. Chloroquine is an anti-malarial drug available at pharmacies for people traveling to area with malaria risks. Note based on a RGCC chemosensitivity analysis I have seen at a German clinic, Hydroxychloroquine has been effective in killing the cancer cells of 5 out 7 patients that were tested. Autophagy and cancer. A large body of evidence suggests that the relationship between autophagy and cancer is complex.42, 43 On the one hand, autophagy appears to inhibit malignant transformation, reflecting its capability to limit the accumulation of potentially oncogenic entities like depolarized mitochondria which overproduce potentially genotoxic reactive oxygen species, ROS.

    Approved indication: For acute attacks of malaria due to P vivax, P malariae, P ovale, and susceptible strains of P falciparum CDC Recommendations: Chloroquine-sensitive uncomplicated malaria (Plasmodium species or species not identified): 600 mg base (1 g salt) orally at once, followed by 300 mg base (500 mg salt) orally at 6, 24, and 48 hours Total dose: 1.5 g base (2.5 g salt) Comments: -For the treatment of uncomplicated malaria due to chloroquine-sensitive P vivax or P ovale, concomitant treatment with primaquine phosphate is recommended. 60 kg or more: 1 g chloroquine phosphate (600 mg base) orally as an initial dose, followed by 500 mg chloroquine phosphate (300 mg base) orally after 6 to 8 hours, then 500 mg chloroquine phosphate (300 mg base) orally once a day on the next 2 consecutive days Total dose: 2.5 g chloroquine phosphate (1.5 g base) in 3 days Less than 60 kg: First dose: 16.7 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (10 mg base/kg) orally Second dose (6 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Third dose (24 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Fourth dose (36 hours after first dose): 8.3 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (5 mg base/kg) orally Total dose: 41.7 mg chloroquine phosphate/kg (25 mg base/kg) in 3 days Comments: -Concomitant therapy with an 8-aminoquinoline compound is necessary for radical cure of malaria due to P vivax and P malariae.

    Chloroquine is a promising drug for cancer therapy and relatively safe, especially for a short period of time. Unexpected side effects on organs, such as the kidney, however, could occur, especially when combined with anticancer drugs, possibly through the inhibition of autophagy. Chloroquine sensitizes breast cancer cells to chemotherapy independent of autophagy. Maycotte P1, Aryal S, Cummings CT, Thorburn J, Morgan MJ, Thorburn A. Chloroquine CQ is a 4-aminoquinoline drug used for the treatment of diverse diseases. This, and its promising preclinical results, make CQ an outstanding candidate for repurposing in cancer treatment. 1, 6, 18 The Repurposing Drugs in Oncology project that focuses on repurposing some well‐known and well‐characterized non‐cancer drugs for new uses in cancer treatment, has emphasized the importance of CQ and HCQ in.

    Chloroquine for research Cell-culture tested InvivoGen Chloroquine is commonly used to study the role of endosomal acidification in cellular processes 2, 3, such as the signaling of intracellular TLRs. Moreover, Chloroquine inhibits autophagy as it raises the lysosomal pH, which leads to inhibition of both fusion of autophagosome with lysosome and lysosomal protein degradation 4.
