Stellar Murumba has been investigating substandard antimalarial drugs. Her work has led to the Kenyan Health Ministry to recall Duo-Cotecxin, a commonly used antimalarial.
We speak with John Dowe of the International Mefloquine Veterans Alliance. The Alliance is a network of individuals affected by the health impacts of Mefloquine and Tafenoquine. Their aim is to support those who are dealing with the complex health implications of the drug’s toxicity.
As part of our ongoing podcast series investigating the antimalarial drugs Tafenoquine and Mefloquine, I speak with Professor Jane Quinn, an army widow. She shares her personal experience with Mefloquine and tells me what kind of side effects an individual may experience from taking the drug.
Tafenoquine is safe and effective, according to the Australian researcher, Professor James McCarthy. He tells us how Tafenoquine and Mefloquine are very different in how they interact with the body.
Meet the man that opposes the use of Tafenoquine. Dr Remington Nevin runs an organisation lobbying against the use of Tafenoquine and other Quinolines. In this interview, he tells us the real reason for why GSK and 60 Degrees are developing the drug, which the U.S. army abandoned (it’s to do with money).
