Ultrapurity: a fatal error in pharmacognosy

June 11, 2017 - 16:55 -- Pierre Lutgen

It is common belief and a dogma of the Western school medicine that valid results with the extracts of natural products can only be obtained if individual constituents are isolated and purified to the highest grade. This entails that most, if not all, scientific papers describing research in this field are based on monotherapies with ultrapure products.

Artemisia guérit en RDC 18 cas de malaria sévère quand les ACT ont échoué.

April 29, 2017 - 17:56 -- Pierre Lutgen

This is a translation of  the Worcester Polytechnic Institute press release 

Worcester, Mass. – April 24, 2017 – Quand les remèdes prescrits n’arrivaient plus à guérir 18 impaludés en situation désespérée, leur médecin traitant dans une clinique du Congo, en se basant sur les procedures du “compassionate use” de l’EMA, a eu recours à un mécicament non encore officiellement autorisé et consistant en comprimés de feuilles séchées de la plante Artemisia annua (désignés sous DLA).

The 2017 malaria avalanche

April 2, 2017 - 19:29 -- Pierre Lutgen

Bigpharma-WHO-Gates desperately try to ignore peer reviewed scientific papers documenting the spread of ACT resistance in at least 12 African countries (see “Artemisinin resistance In Africa” www.malariaworld.org).

Several medical teams in Africa have demonstrated in randomized, double blind clinical trials that Artemisia infusions are powerful in therapy and prophylaxis (see “Breaking news from clinical trials with Artemisia plants” www.malariaworld.org).

The antimalarial davanone in several Artemisia species

March 11, 2017 - 20:03 -- Pierre Lutgen

In Mexico eight species of Artemisia have been described and among them just Artemisia ludoviciana has been empirically used in the treatment of intermittent fever (malaria). To know whether this Mexican Artemisia had antimalarial activity several in vivo experiments were performed, on mice infected by Plasmodium yoelii yoelii, in a four-day test scheme. The results of the in vivo experiments showed that the parasite reproduction was inhibited up to 98.6% at the fifth day.

abstract

      Caused not by racial or religious conflict, but by greed.

      Every year WHO claims that the battle against malaria is won and that the number of malaria infections has been halved. Unfortunately, in several countries the disease is exploding. In Burundi the number of infections has increased from 4 716 152 in 2014 to 7 813 958 in 2016.

      A recent mission of WHO to this country had to confess a complete failure of LLINs and ACTs.

 

Very efficient prophylaxis with Artemisia annua: another Congolese breakthrough

January 26, 2017 - 20:11 -- Pierre Lutgen

 4 years ago, a heated debate concerning malaria prophylaxis had been triggered on www.malariaworld.org. It concerned the very promising results obtained by Dr Patrick Ogwang, with an herbal product called Artavol, he had developed with the Ministry of Health in Uganda. Peer reviewed papers and press releases are easily found on internet.

The Viet-Công, Artemisia annua, arteannuin B and artemisinin

December 30, 2016 - 22:05 -- Pierre Lutgen

Artemisia annua came under the spotlight during the Vietnam War. Viêt-Cong who operated in swamps and rain forests lost more soldiers by mosquito bites than by American bullets. Ho Chi Min turned to China for help. Researchers at the Chinese Institute of Material Medicine had found a region of China that reported no malaria cases, and when they investigated, they discovered that its people drank a decoction of Artemisia annua at the first symptoms of malaria.
