Guide to Malaria Pharmacology Comments
Azithromycin has been investigated as a potential treatment for uncomplicated P. falciparum or P. vivax malaria but does not provide an advantage over current therapies [3].

Potential Target/Mechanism Of Action: As the precise mechanism of action of azithromycin in the malaria parasite is not yet known, we do not have a Plasmodium molecular target for this compound. Further information about possible mechanistic insights is provided under the Clinical data tab.
