Abstract

Abstract Since it was introduced into Europe from South America by the Jesuits at the beginning of the 17th century, quinine has been one of the most effective drugs for the treatment of malaria. During this century a number of synthetic antimalarial drugs have been introduced but while these have had considerable success their extensive and sometimes haphazard use, often as an alternative to vector control, has created serious resistance problems.
