1. Plasma concentrations of alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (AAG) and plasma protein binding of quinine were measured in 97 Thai adults with acute falciparum malaria. There was a linear relationship between log AAG and percentage quinine binding (r = 0.71, P less than 0.001) in vivo, which was similar to that observed in vitro; the slopes and intercepts of the regression lines at AAG concentrations of 1 g l-1 were -8.94 and -8.41, and 7.2% and 10.9%, respectively. 2. Hill plots from these data sugg...Expand abstract
