    The effectiveness of many anticancer agents is dependent on their disposition to the intracellular space of cancerous tissue. Accumulation of anticancer drugs at their sites of action can be altered by both uptake and efflux transport proteins, however the majority of research on the disposition...

    Plasmodium falciparum is one of the most lethal parasite responsible for human malaria. Until now, the only one solution to counter malaria is the use of antimalarial drugs. Unfortunately, the extensively use of drugs, such as quinolines (i.e. chloroquine, quinine or mefloquine), have led to the...
