The quinolones also referred to as fluoroquinolones are a family of synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotics. The term quinolone(s) refers to potent synthetic chemotherapeutic antibacterials the first generation of which was derived from an attempt to create a synthetic form of chloroquine, which was used to treat malaria during World War II. Hans Andersag discovered chloroquine in 1934, at Bayer I.G. Farbenindustrie A.G. laboratories in Eberfeld, Germany. The first generation of the quinolones begins with the introduction of nalidixic acid in 1962 for treatment of urinary tract infections in humans.Nalidixic acid was discovered by George Lesher and coworkers in a distillate during an attempt at chloroquine synthesis.
