The mechanism of antimalarial action of the ruthenium–chloroquine complex [RuCl2(CQ)]2 (1), previously shown by us to be active in vitro against CQ-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum and in vivo against P. berghei, has been investigated. The complex is rapidly hydrolyzed in aqueous solution to [RuCl(OH2)3(CQ)]2[Cl]2, which is probably the active(More)
Type 2 myocardial infarction (type 2 MI) is defined as myocardial necrosis that results from an imbalance of myocardial oxygen supply and demand. Although type 2 MI is highly prevalent and strongly associated with mortality, the pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Discrepancies in definitions, frequency of screening, diagnostic approaches, and(More)
