BACKGROUND Plasmodium falciparum, one of the causative agents of malaria, has high adaptability through mutation and is resistant to many types of anti-malarial drugs. This study presents an in vitro assessment of the antiplasmodial activity of some phenolic compounds isolated from plants of the genus Allanblackia. METHODS Tests were performed on well plates filled with a fixed parasitized erythrocytes volume. Compounds to be tested were then added in wells. After incubation, tritiated…

Natural Phenolic Compounds and Derivatives as Potential Antimalarial Agents.
This review aims to examine the most promising antiplasmodial phenolic compounds and derivatives isolated over the course of the last 28 years and discuss their structure-activity relationships, mechanisms of action, toxicity, new perspectives they could add to the fight against malaria, and the difficulties of transforming these potential compounds into new antimalarials.
Antiplasmodial natural products: an update
Several natural products with potential for blocking the transmission of malaria have the potential to be developed into viable anti-malarial drugs and could play a role in malaria eradication by targeting gametocytes.
Guttiferone BL with antibacterial activity from the fruits of Allanblackia gabonensis
The chemical study of the methanol extract from the fruits of Allanblackia gabonensis resulted in the isolation of the undescribed guttiferone BL, which displayed low to significant activity against the tested bacterial strains with MICs ranging from 8 to 512 μg/mL.
In vitro antiplasmodial activity, cytotoxicity, antioxidant action and GC-FID analysis of Allanblackia floribunda Oliv
This study evaluated the in vitro antiplasmodial efficacy and cytotoxicity of Allanbackia floribunda stem bark extract, leaf extract and oil. It also assessed the phytochemical compositions and
Plant Derived Antimalarial Agents
In this review, many of those plants all over the world which are being used for the treatment of mlaria and can be the potential source for the development of new antimalarial drugs are highlighted.
The potential of anti-malarial compounds derived from African medicinal plants: a review of pharmacological evaluations from 2013 to 2019
The anti-malarial virtue of the most recently published phytochemicals or natural products, which have been tested by in vitro and in vivo assays are presented to continue laying the groundwork for an African-based anti- malarial drug discovery project.
Identification of 3,3′-O-dimethylellagic acid and apigenin as the main antiplasmodial constituents of Endodesmia calophylloides Benth and Hymenostegia afzelii (Oliver.) Harms
Two potent antiplasmodial natural compounds, 3,3′- O -dimethylellagic acid and apigenin that could serve as starting points for further antimalarial drug discovery are identified.
Antiplasmodial properties of plants isolated flavonoids and their derivatives
Flavonoids are one of the major groups of plant secondary metabolites and have long been used as traditional medicines with scientifically proven pharmacological profits. They are commonly found in


Antimalarial activity in vitro of Cochlospermum tinctorium tubercle extracts.
Prenylated xanthone derivatives with antiplasmodial activity from Allanblackia monticola STANER L.C.
The methanol extract and pure compounds were tested on two strains of Plasmodium falciparum, F32 ( chloroquine sensitive) and FcM29 (chloroquine resistant) and the IC50 values obtained ranged from 0.6 to 8.9 microg/ml.
Xanthones from the seeds of Allanblackia monticola and their apoptotic and antiproliferative activities.
The structures of these compounds were established on the basis of one- and two-dimensional NMR homo- and heteronuclear correlation evidence and were evaluated for their apoptotic and antiproliferative activities against human leukemic B lymphocytes, such as the hairy cell leukemia-derived ESKOL cell line and cells from B-CLL (B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia) patients.
Antimalarial and vasorelaxant constituents of the leaves of Allanblackia monticola (Guttiferae)
Phytochemical investigation of the leaves of Allanblackia monticola led to the isolation and characterisation of five prenylated xanthones, established on the basis of homo- and hetero-nuclear, one- and two-dimensional, nuclear magnetic resonance.
Leishmanicidal and cholinesterase inhibiting activities of phenolic compounds from Allanblackia monticola and Symphonia globulifera.
Although the leishmanicidal activity of the methanolic extracts of Allanblackia monticola and Symphonia globulifera is promising, the cytotoxicity profile of these compounds prevent at this state further in vivo biological evaluation.
Antimicrobial and antileishmanial xanthones from the stem bark of Allanblackia gabonensis (Guttiferae)
The phytochemical study of stem bark of Allanblackia gabonensis has resulted in the isolation and characterisation of one new xanthone derivative, named allanxanthone D, together with 10 known compounds, which were evaluated for their activity against Leishmania amazonensis in vitro and antimicrobial activities against a range of Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria.
Quantitative assessment of antimalarial activity in vitro by a semiautomated microdilution technique
A rapid, semiautomated microdilution method was developed for measuring the activity of potential antimalarial drugs against cultured intraerythrocytic asexual forms of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, and results demonstrated that the method is sensitive and precise.
Anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory activities of some isolated constituents from the stem bark of Allanblackia monticola Staner L.C (Guttiferae)
Methylene chloride fraction of Allanblackia monticola and some derivatives, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.
