Abstract : Improved means for the chemotherapy of malaria have been achieved with 5-alkoxy-primaquine analogues. These primaquine-related compounds afford improvement in the chemotherapy of malaria by exerting plasmodicial action on malaria parasites which may be present in either the blood, formed tissues, or blood and formed tissues of the mammalian host. Such broad and practical spectrum of effectiveness distinguishes the said primaquine analogues, which may be administered parenterally or perorally to infected animals.
