Abstract

Malaria affects millions of people worldwide. Resistance to drugs that treat malaria has increased the demand for efficient drugs. The search for antimalarial drugs has led to the synthesis of a vast number of quinolone analogues as potential antimalarials. An important tool for medicinal chemists in discovering new treatments for diseases is recognizing structure activity relationships.
