Effects of extracts of Artemisia diffusa against Plasmodium berghei as a new antimalarial agent
BOSTON--The use of adjunctive therapy and a lot of patience may go a long way to improving the response of cutaneous lupus erythematosus to antimalarial agents
, according to Dr.
Earlier an in vitro study also found combination of quinine and omeprazole to be significantly synergistic (8), similarly another in vitro study found rabeprazole and lansoprazole to be the most effective antimalarial agents
amongst the available PPI (7).
The article, "High-level production of amorpha-4,11-diene, a precursor of the antimalarial agent
artemisinin, in Escherichia coli" appears in PLoS ONE, an open-access journal from the Public Library of Science.
used for the treatment of RA include chloroquine (Aralen[R]) and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil[R]).
Synthesis and evaluation of cryp-tolepine analogues for their potential as new antimalarial agents
Pilat-Carotta said that the team used a treatment approach which combined drugs that suppress potentially harmful inflammation with antimalarial agents
that fight the parasite, in mouse models infected with the malaria parasite Plasmodium berghei.
Development of resistance to artemisinin monotherapy , has prompted the use of artemisinin-based combination treatments (ACTs), involving the use of an artemisinin compound with other antimalarial agents
The rising problem of resistance to the classical drugs (chloroquine and sulphadoxine pyrimethamine) (3,4) and the problem of recrudescence of artemisinin stress the need to look for new antimalarial agents

Drawing on the Plasmodium Genome Database, international multidisciplinary contributors to 27 chapters review the latest understanding of its genetics, the host-parasite relationship, immune system invasion and responses, and mechanism of antimalarial agents
However because of the risk of recrudescence, it has to be combined with other antimalarial agents
