Piperaquine is being developed as a long-acting component in artemisinin combination therapies. It was highly active in vitro and drug interaction studies showed that dihydroartemisinin combinations with piperaquine, chloroquine, and amodiaquine were indifferent tending toward antagonism. Competitive uptake of radiolabeled chloroquine and dihydroartemisinin in combination with other antimalarials was observed.
