Another important property of Artemisia plants. Might help us to better understand the high efficacy against tropical diseases.  Just published  in PPIJ! See pdf attached

 

And as Artemisia afra is endemic in so many African countries and used since generations as traditional medicine against malaria no further pre-clinical trials are required as per WHO/EDM/TRM/2000.1    

This traditional use is recognized by  WHO in the October 2019 statement WHO-CDS-GMP-2019.14

“ The species A. afra grows throughout the southern and eastern parts of Africa and has been used in traditional medicine to treat a variety of ailments from asthma and rheumatism    to malaria”
