Malaria is a fatal disease caused by different Plasmodium species of parasites and has remained the major killer of humans worldwide especially the children under five years of age and pregnant women. In this study, the anti-Plasmodia activities of the crude leaf ether extracts of Aloe dawei (AD) and Justicia betonica (JB) on Plasmodium falciparum were investigated, with chloroquine diphosphate as a positive control. The results showed that ether extracts of JB had EC50 of 13.36 (95% CI: 8.032…

Evaluation of Antimalarial Activity of the Leaf Latex and TLC Isolates from Aloe megalacantha Baker in Plasmodium berghei Infected Mice

The present study supports the traditional claim of the plant Aloe megalacantha for the treatment of malaria by observing parasite suppression of leaves latex and isolates and increased the survival time of Plasmodium berghei infected mice as compared to the negative control.

A Review on Antimalarial Activities of Aloe species Extracts

Considering that natural molecules have acted as natural templates in the development of antimalarial agents, it is encouraged to investigate further analyses into Aloe constituents and their values against malaria.

In V itro S creening of Antiplasmodium Activity of Momordica C harantia

Extracts/ fractions of the fruit coat of Momordica charantia, (common name; bitter melon, Balsam) were tested in-vitro for its antiplasmodial activity and only chloroform fraction from the crude extract had shown good antiplaModial activity.
