Background: The mechanism of primaquine-induced toxicities is unknown but is believed to require metabolic activation. Identification of reactive metabolites will help in understanding of the mechanism of primaquine toxicity. Aim: To identify and characterise reactive metabolites of primaquine, and to examine the mechanism of formation and..
