Possible Interaction: Caffeine and Halofantrine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Phase solubility studies support the formation of a 1:1 complex between caffeine and halofantrine which is characterised by a K(1:1) constant of 2.75x10(3) M(-1) (pH 5.9).
The aqueous solubility of the antimalarial agent halofantrine in phosphate buffers pH 5.9 and 7.0 (ionic strength 0.08) is increased by the addition of caffeine and nicotinamide.
The greatest increase in solubility was observed at pH 5.9 where the basal solubility of halofantrine rose from 0.91 to 435 microM when 125 mM caffeine was added.
