    What is plaquenil? Plaquenil is a medication commonly used in patients that have Rheumatoid Arthritis RA, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus SLE, Sjogrens Syndrome, and other inflammatory and autoiummune disorders. What are risk factors for developing retinal toxicity from Plaquenil? Age older than 60; Daily dose of more than 6.5mg/kg Plaquenil is in a class of medicines known as antimalarials. It's a less toxic version of the older antimalarials, including quinine and chloroquine. PLAQUENIL does not prevent relapses of P. vivax or P. ovale because it is not active against the hypnozoite forms of these parasites. For radical cure of P. vivax and P. ovale infections, concomitant therapy with an 8-aminoquinoline compound is necessary see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY - Microbiology.

    Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito.

    Plaquenil and Retinal toxicity - from FDA reports Summary Retinal toxicity is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 40-49 old, have been taking the drug for 5 - 10 years, also take medication Arava, and have Osteoporosis. Plaquenil toxicity is poorly understood. It is believed the medication molecules bind to the pigment melanin at the base of the retinal retinal pigment epithelium causing metabolic changes and toxic effects. Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil Sanofi-Aventis, is an antimalarial drug that has gained widespread use in treating various autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis. 1 By some estimates, more than 150,000 patients are on long-term therapy with this medication in America alone. 2 Retinal toxicity associated with HCQ use is relatively rare, estimated at 1 percent after five years and rising with continued therapy. 3 However.

    Management Considerations in Cancer Patients With Rheumatoid. There is no evidence so far that rheumatoid arthritis therapies increase the risk of developing non-skin solid tumors.3,4 There is some controversy as to whether biologic agents, specifically tumor necrosis factor TNF inhibitors, may increase the risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer, melanoma, and lymphoma; any increased risk, however, appears to be small.3,4 Whether this class of agents may accelerate tumor progression in patients with pre-existing cancer remains debatable.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil Toxicity and Recommendations for Screening Figure 6 This is a Kaplan Meier curve showing the cumulative risk of retinopathy over time, with different levels of hydroxychloroquine HCQ use. When use is between 4.0 and 5.0 mg/kg, the risk is very low within the first 5 to 10 years, but it increases markedly thereafter. Reproduced from Melles and Marmor, 2014 7
