Antiplasmodial activity of Vernonia cinerea Less (Asteraceae), a plant used in traditional medicine in Burkina Faso to treat malaria

The present study highlighted the very promising antiplasmodial activity of V. cinerea Less and suggested that this plant extracts merit further study about its in vivo anti Plasmodium berghei infected mice.

In Vitro Antiprotozoal and Cytotoxic Activity of Ethnopharmacologically Selected Guinean Plants

Results from an ethnobotanical survey may validate at least in part the traditional use of some of the Guinean plant species widely used in the traditional treatment of fever and/or malaria.

In vivo antiplasmodial activity of crude extracts of Vernonia cinerea Less (Asteraceae) against Plasmodium berghei infection in mice in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso

The results suggest that the extract of Vernonia cinerea Less possesses antiplasmodial activity and these results may justify its use in ethnomedicine to treat malaria disease.

Antiplasmodial activity of selected medicinal plants used to treat malaria in Ghana

The results while justifying the traditional use of the plant materials in the treatment of malaria, however, suggest their cautious use.

valuation of 13 selected medicinal plants from Burkina Faso for their ntiplasmodial properties

Dicoma tomentosa (Asteraceae) and Psorospermum senegalense (Clusiaceae) appeared to be the best candidates for further investigation of their antiplasmodial properties, reported for the first time by this study.

In vitro antiplasmodial activity of crude extracts from Togolese medicinal plants.

Ethnobotanical Survey and Biological Activities of Two Lactogenic Plants in the Cascades Region of Burkina Faso

Important medicinal plants in the Cascades region of Burkina Faso were used to stimulate or ameliorate lactation, however further studies must be conducted to confirm the traditional use of these plants.



Synergistic in vitro antimalarial activity of plant extracts used as traditional herbal remedies in Mali

Three combinations demonstrate a strong, synergistic, inhibitory effect on in vitro plasmodial development and are devoid of cytotoxicity towards human cells, which justify their use in association in traditional medicine.

Natural products and the development of selective antiprotozoal drugs

The potential of natural plant products as a source of antiprotozoal drugs is discussed with respect to biochemical differences between protozoa and hosts with emphasis onalkaloids, terpenes, quinones and miscellaneous compounds.

Use of hydroethidine and flow cytometry to assess the effects of leukocytes on the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum

Results indicate that flow cytometry is potentially useful for measuring the following effects mediated by leukocytes: (i) level of cytotoxicity, (ii) changes in parasite development, and (iii) inhibition of parasite invasion.

Human malaria parasites in continuous culture.

Plasmodium falciparum can now be maintained in continuous culture in human erythrocytes incubated at 38 degrees C in RPMI 1640 medium with human serum under an atmosphere with 7 percent carbon

Indicators of life-threatening malaria in African children.

In African children with malaria, the presence of impaired consciousness or respiratory distress can identify those at high risk for death.
