Abstract

The public health care system is currently facing a major problem with malaria. Globally, malarial deaths have decreased by an estimated 40% in the past two decades because of the clinically effective drugs (artemisinin-based combination therapies) against Plasmodium falciparum. In recent years, P falciparum develop resistance against all antimalarial drugs and then becomes developed multidrug resistance that a major challenge. Even though drug discovery programs have made substantial progress in the past decade, the potential for new drugs/combinations to improve the effectiveness of current malaria control strategies. Beyond, we have compiled a comprehensive review of clinically approved anti-malarial drugs with resistance mechanisms and a novel drug-resistance reversal approach in one place to meet this demand. The review aimed to provide detailed information on drug resistance, its regulatory molecular mechanisms responsible for resistance, and the novel available treatment of malaria. In this review, the article will help in developing effective interventions, potential approaches, and strategies to handle antimalarial resistance. This will prevent life-threatening infections.
