For more than 300 years, quinine was the only specific treatment for malaria. It was synthesized in 1944 (Woodward and Doering 1945) and has again become the antimalarial drug of choice in some parts of the world, both for uncomplicated and complicated forms of the disease and as monotherapy or as the backbone of combination… CONTINUE READING
