Hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and chloroquine (Ara-len) are 4-aminoquinoline antimalarial drugs that possess modest DMARD activity. They are indicated for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus; their use as antimalarials is detailed in Chapter 53. The onset of action of these drugs is longer than that of other DMARDs, and their side effects are relatively mild. Because of this, these agents show promise as ingredients of combination therapies for rheumatoid arthritis.
