Quinoline Containing Side-chain Antimalarial Analogs: Recent Advances and Therapeutic Application

[ Vol. 20 , Issue. 8 ]


Mukesh C. Joshi* and Timothy J. Egan   Pages 617 - 697 ( 81 )


The side-chains of quinoline antimalarial agents are the major concern of focus to build novel and efficaciaous bioactive and clinical antimalarials. Bioative antimalarial analogs may play a critical role in pH trapping in the food vacuole of RBC’s with the help of fragmented amino acid, thus lead to β-hematin inhibition. Here, the authors tried to summarize a useful, comprehensive compilation of side-chain modified ACQs along with their synthesis, biophysical and therapeutic applications etc. of potent antiplasmodial agents and therefore, opening the door towards the potential clinical status.
