Chart 1: Evaluate the effectiveness of various treatments of Loliumrigidumand Artemisia annua
root extracts on the germination of Sorghumbicolor.
It can be seen that these topics listed were hot ones in artemisinin research: clinical research (uncomplicated combination therapy and its efficiency, drug resistance discovery), pharmacokinetic (worm, daily doses and liquid plasma), action mechanism (cells apoptosis induces), and substitution of artemisinin (radical reactions, alkyl radicals, synthesis of arteannuin analogs and Artemisia annua
However, meeting this increased demand will be a challenge: artemisinin is extracted from the plant Artemisia annua
, but yields are low, making production expensive.
Artemisinin from Artemisia annua
, human recombinant interferon-[alpha] (IFN-[alpha]) and ribavirin were added to BVDV infected bovine epithelial cells and incubated for 72h.
(known as 'quinghao' in China) is an erect aromatic annual herb of up to 2 m in height.
Drugs derived from the plant Artemisia annua
must be used as ACTs in combination with a second drug, and not alone.
containing the Chinese herb Artemisia annua
are now considered amongst
Keasling described his work engineering a yeast containing new genes from the Artemisia annua
plant that can produce a low-cost version of artemisinin, the most effective and expensive anti-malarial drug.
Simple and rapid physico-chemical methods to examine action of antimalarial drugs with hemin: its application to Artemisia annua
The new molecule should ensure a short treatment period of 3 days for malaria, and the cost of the product is expected to be much less than the presently-being-used Artemisinin derivatives, using naturally grown artemisia annua
Currently, artemisinin is laboriously and expensively extracted from Artemisia annua
, a medicinal plant grown primarily in China, Vietnam, and parts of Africa.
Among several species of the genus, Artemisia annua
Wright from the University of Bradford, West Yorkshire (UK), is dedicated to Artemisia, a plant genus which has received great attention since the discovery of the anti-malarial drug artemisinin from Artemisia annua
Artemisinin, a naturally occurring chemical, is isolated by Hauser from the herb Artemisia annua
The new molecule should ensure a short treatment period of 3 days for malaria, and the cost of the product is expected to be much less than the presently being used Artemisinin derivatives, using naturally grown artemisia annua
