EUA Hydroxychloroquine Phosphate Patients and Parent/Caregivers Fact Sheet, version date 3/28/20 Hydroxychloroquine sulfate is experimental because we do not know if it works for COVID-19. It is not approved by FDA for the treatment of COVID-19, but emergency use has been authorized for adults and adolescents who weigh 50 kg (110 pounds) or more and are hospitalized with COVID-19 if a clinical trial is not available or you are not able to participate in a clinical trial.

Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate is a synthetic derivative of quinolyl with chemotherapeutic and antibiotic properties, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate acts against erythrocytic malarial parasites (Plasmodium vivax, ovale, and malariae) by concentrating in food vacuoles. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase and acts through other unknown mechanisms. Hydroxychloroquine also has anti-inflammatory properties and is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus erythematosus. (NCI04)
A chemotherapeutic agent that acts against erythrocytic forms of malarial parasites. Hydroxychloroquine appears to concentrate in food vacuoles of affected protozoa. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman’s The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p970)
