    ANSWER Chloroquine-resistant malaria has been observed in India and so the first line drug of choice should be an artemisinin-derivative in combination with another drug this group of medications are more generally known as "artemisinin-based combination therapies" or ACTs. Plasmodium falciparum chloroquine resistance is a major cause of worldwide increases in malaria mortality and morbidity. Recent laboratory and clinical studies have associated chloroquine resistance with point mutations in the gene pfcrt. However, direct proof of a causal relationship has remained elusive and most models have posited a multigenic basis of resistance. This deficiency explains the reduced ability of chloroquine-resistant parasites to concentrate chloroquine, and it suggests that chloroquine resistance is due to a decrease in the number, affinity, or accessibility of chloroquine receptor sites on a constituent of the malaria parasite.

    Travelers going to malaria-endemic countries are at risk for contracting the disease, and almost all of the approximately 1,700 cases per year of malaria in the United States are imported. Malaria is a major international public health problem; 91 countries reported an estimated 216 million infections and 445,000 deaths in 2016, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) World Malaria Report 2017.

    Among children 10 years old, 32% of infections with chloroquine-resistant parasites cleared after chloroquine treatment, whereas 66% of older children and young adults showed such clearance. Frequent in vivo clearance of chloroquine-resistant parasites with the K76T mutation also occurred in other studies. Chloroquine, brand name Aralen, is an anti-malarial drug. It is similar to hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, and is useful in treating several forms of malaria as well as amebiasis that has spread outside of the intestines. Chloroquine, an anti-malaria drug that President Trump fast-tracked for clinical testing this week in the fight against coronavirus, can be deadly for kids, according to an Oklahoma family who said
