FANSIDAR (aka Pyrimethamine + Sulfadoxine, Daraprim) - is a combination of Pyrimethamine and Sulfadoxine. Fansidar is an antimalarial drug used for protozoal infections. Thanks to this strong synergism, asexual erythrocytic forms of malaria parasites (trophozoites, schizonts) die after a single administration. This effect is achieved by blocking the two enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of folinic acid parasites. Fansidar has also be used as a treatment and prophylactic measure for toxoplasmosis and Pneumocystis jiroveci pneumonia.

Sulfadoxine is a sulfonamide antibiotic that competes with p-aminobenzoic acid in the biosynthesis of folate. Pyrimethamine serves as a selective inhibitor of protozoal dihydrofolate reductase, hence preventing the synthesis of tetrahydrofolate - the active form of folate. A great degree of synergy occurs between the two drugs due to their inhibition of two different steps in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrofolate.
