This study therefore aimed at investigating the in vivo antiplasmodial activity of 80% methanol extract and solvent fractions of the leaves of Croton macrostachyus H. in rodent model of malaria.
A series of 1H-1,2,3-triazole-tethered isatin-7-chloroquinoline and 3-hydroxy-indole-7-chloroquinoline conjugates have been synthesized and evaluated for their antimalarial activity against chloroquine-resistant W2 strain of Plasmodium falciparum.
During this study, amide 15 was thus identified as the best drug-candidate to for further investigation as a potential drug in search for new, safe and effective antimalarial drugs.
518 providers working at non-profit health facilities and for-profit pharmacies and drug stores in Yaoundé and Bamenda in Cameroon and in Enugu State in Nigeria were surveyed between July and December 2009 to elicit the antimalarial they prefer to supply for uncomplicated malaria.
Our results showed that the icELISA has the potential to be improved for quality assurance of ARTs at the point of care in endemic settings.
This study validated the traditional uses of the plant for the treatment of malaria and identified a new alkaloid, simplicifolianine as a potential antimalarial drug lead.
The objective of the present study was to collect and document information on herbal remedies traditionally used for the treatment of malaria in Guinea.
Present study further validates the ancient Indian traditional knowledge and use of Pluchea lanceolata as an antimalarial agent. Study confirms the suitability of Pluchea lanceolata as a candidate for further studies to obtain a prototype for antimalarial medicine.
Results are reported by source (plants, fungi, marine organisms and bacteria) and anticancer mechanism. In total, 14 out of 15 nature-derived antimalarials (93%) referenced by WHO as well as 146 of 235 antimalarial natural species (62%) from our defined MEDLINE search were reported as having anticancer activity.
To evaluate the in vitro antiplasmodial activity and cytotoxicity, and the in vivo activity of extracts and fractions from the leaves, root-bark and stem-bark of Triclisia gilletii (De Wild) Staner (Menispermaceae), used in traditional medicine against malaria.
