The chemotherapy of rodent malaria XXXVI. Part IV. The activity of a new 8-aminoquinoline, WR 225,448 against exo-erythrocytic schizonts of Plasmodium yoelii yoelii.

Abstract

Light microscope and ultrastructural studies show that WR 225,448, an 8-aminoquinoline related to primaquine, causes substantial damage to developing pre-erythrocytic (EE) schizonts of Plasmodium yoelii yoelii in the liver of young rats. In addition to lesions of the mitochondria and nuclear membranes, secretory granules in the parasite fail to reach the… (More)
