Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to amodiaquine base (CAS RN 86-42-0). Amodiaquine is used to treat malaria. The mechanism of plasmodicidal action of amodiaquine is not completely certain. Like other quinoline derivatives, it is thought to inhibit heme polymerase activity. This results in accumulation of free heme, which is toxic to the parasite. Amodiaquine is a 4-aminoquinoline compound with anti-inflammatory properties. The mechanism of plasmodicidal action of amodiaquine is not completely certain. Like other quinoline derivatives, it is thought to inhibit heme polymerase activity. This results in accumulation of free heme, which is toxic to the parasite. The drug binds to the free heme, preventing the parasite from converting it to a less toxic form; the drug-heme complex is toxic and disrupts membrane function.
