    More research is therefore ideally required to confirm that use of chloroquine at this stage of pregnancy is not harmful. However, malaria infection during early pregnancy is itself known to increase the chance of miscarriage, and any possible risk from taking chloroquine is likely to be less than the risks posed to both mother and baby by malaria. It appears to be safe for use during pregnancy. It works against the asexual form of malaria inside the red blood cell. Chloroquine was discovered in 1934 by Hans Andersag. It is available as a generic medication. For pregnant women diagnosed with uncomplicated malaria caused by chloroquine-resistant P. falciparum infection, women in the second and third trimesters can be treated with artemether-lumfantrine, and for all trimesters, mefloquine or a combination of quinine sulfate and clindamycin is recommended. Quinine treatment should continue for 7 days for infections acquired in Southeast Asia and for 3 days for infections acquired elsewhere; clindamycin treatment should continue for 7 days.
