Abstract Objective To evaluate the antimalarial activities of ethanolic root extract/fractions of Anthocleista djalonensis (A. djalonensis) in Plasmodium berghei (P. berghei) infected mice. Methods A. djalonensis root extract (175–1 000 mg/kg) and fractions (chloroform, ethyl acetate and methanol; 250 and 500 mg/kg) were investigated for antiplasmodial activity against chloroquine-sensitive Plasmodium berghei infections in mice and for antipyretic activity against dinitrophenol, amphetamine and… Expand
