Alteration of chloroquine accumulation in human polymorphonuclear leucocytes under inflammatory conditions.

The present study concerns the established antirheumatic drug chloroquine (CQ) in relation to a possible target for drug therapy, the polymorphonuclear leucocyte (PMN). Its primary aim was to find out whether inflammatory conditions would influence the cell association of CQ. After a suitable ligand-binding assay was developed to measure the cellular… (More)
