The Infectious Myth - Dr. Remington Nevin on the Quinolone Antimalarial Drugs - 07.24.18
Dr. Remington Nevin was a guest on this show almost exactly 3 years ago, discussing the dangerous neurotoxicity of the drug Mefloquine, long given to soldiers to prevent malaria, mostly in English speaking countries. Now that the FDA has just approved another drug in the quinoline family, Tafenoquine, and a new foundation has been established, it is a good time to discuss developments in the struggle of former soldiers against Mefloquine, as well as whether this new drug is going to be any more effective and any less toxic. Dr. Nevin is probably the world’s top expert on these drugs, at least among scientists who are willing to speak.
