Mechanisms of in situ activation of peroxidic antimalarials

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

22 Scopus citations


This review describes mechanisms of action of artemisinin-related antimalarials, emphasizing the site and target of activation, pathways of generating reactive species, and possible targets of free radicals with implications for antimalarial peroxide drug design. It also presents a useful link between the mode of action of artemisinin and that of chloroquine, and highlights redox cycles involved in the interaction between the drug and vital biomolecules.
