From the Back Cover:

At a time when the control of malaria is increasingly limited by the growing resistance of malaria parasites to available drugs, the need for a much better use of the existing drugs, as well as for the development of new antimalarials, has become urgent. In Antimalarial Chemotherapy: Mechanisms of Action, Resistance, and New Directions in Drug Discovery, a panel of leading malaria experts drawn from academia, the military, and international health organizations survey the latest scientific understanding of antimalarial chemotherapy, emphasizing the molecular mechanisms of resistance and the description of important new targets. The survey covers the current status of malarial and antimalarial chemotherapy, the relevant biology and biochemistry of malaria parasites, the antimalarial drugs currently available, and new chemical approaches to and possible new targets for chemotherapy. It also discusses, as essential background, the history of chemotherapy, the practical aspects of therapy, and the public health consequences of current problems in antimalarial chemotherapy.
Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Antimalarial Chemotherapy: Mechanisms of Action, Resistance, and New Directions in Drug Discovery clearly delineates all the basic and clinical research now addressing one of the world's major unresolved disease problems, work that is now powerfully driving the rapid pace of antimalarial drug discovery today.

Review:

"With contributions from 41 different authors, this book provides a welcome collection of short reviews covering numerous topics in antimalarial chemotherapy. ...this book will offer a useful review for those who study malaria and, more importantly, an entry point into antimalarial chemotherapy for those new in the field." - Journal of Medicinal Chemistry

"...the publication of a new on antimalarial chemotheraphy is very topcial and timely. Philip Rosenthal has put together a very comprehensive book on the current status of research in this important field of medicianl chemistry....The part on established antimalarial drugs covers all drugs currently in clinical application and trials....Special emphasis is put in many articles on aspects of toxicity, therapy, problems, and future developments....the editor has managed to compile the contributions in such a way that a comprehensive picture of the current status emerges and the book feels more like a single-author publication than an edited work....The book is a must for chemists, biologists, and health professionals involved in malaria research." - ChemBioChem

"...thought provoking with its new leads to drug discovery...an essential addition to the libraries and an essential reading book for malariologists." -The National Journal of India
