  Purpose

Chloroquine is an anti-malaria agent. This study is designed to evaluate inter-ethnic differences of therapeutic effect of chloroquine and search the cause of these ethnic differences. For this purpose, chloroquine will be administered to four ethic groups of Korean, Caucasian, African and Southeast Asian and chloroquine concentration in blood will be measured. The result of this study will be helpful in finding more adequate dosing regimen of chloroquine in patients with malaria.
