Metal complexes as antimalarial potential: A review

Author(s):
Virender Singh
Abstract:
Malaria, a parasitic disease which occurs mainly in tropical zones of the world, has contributed greatly to health burden of the global population. Malaria treatment is becoming more challenging due to rising resistance against the antimalarial drug, chloroquine. Novel compounds that target aspects of parasite development are being explored in attempts to overcome this wide-spread problem. Anti-malarial drugs target specific aspects of parasite growth and development within the human host. Оrganometallic chеmistry is of growing interest especially in the recent decades due to its wide applications in the biological and medicinal field, this application leads to a new area called bioorganometallic chemistry. Metal complexes are used in bioorganometallic chemistry since they exhibit a wide range of biological activities against various diseases. In this study we will focus on the antimalarial activities of metal complexes.
