Polysaccharides and saponins

Key elements in artemisia annua therapy

Polysaccharides and saponins
The essential role of sulfated polysaccharides in artemisia annua tea infusion So far the presence of polysaccharides in Artemisia annua has been barely covered in the scientific literature. The reason may be that they are only soluble in water and most of the Artemisia extracts for research are obtained by organic solvents. Polysaccharides are polymeric carbohydrates of high molecular weight. They have probably been overlooked in the research on Artemisia annua . The same applies to water soluble tannins and saponins in artemisia...

Equipment for water sterilization with moringa and artemisia

Project Rotary district 1630 & Bangui

In recent years several NGO’s, like IFBV, promote artemisia annua tea in tropical countries. This plant has excellent therapeutical properties against malaria, as demonstrated by several clinical trials. And as it is now growing in many African gardens and schools a lot of people have noticed that if they drink this tea regularly they are immune against malaria.

These prophylactic properties have been confirmed at large scale in Kenyan schools, partners of the IDAY network. In 2010 artemisia annua plantations were extended...

Artemisia annua, une tisane prophylactique contre le paludisme

La prévention permet d'éradiquer le paludisme

Depuis quelques années plusieurs associations, dont IFBV-Luxembourg, propagent des plantations d’artemisia annua dans les pays tropicaux. Cette plante a d’excellentes propriétés thérapeutiques contre le paludisme, comme des essais cliniques récents l’ont confirmé. Notamment ceux réalisés à grande échelle au Cameroun en 2009 (Emilien Fouda à Yaoundé et Rosine Chougouo à Bangangté) et qui avaient montré les...

Is PCR genotyping of Plasmodium falciparum a reliable tool to monitor drug resistance?

falciparum resistance PCR artemisia annua

Is PCR genotyping of Plasmodium falciparum a reliable tool to monitor drug resistance?

A recent press release from Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute raised a lot of concern. Based on a scientific paper published in Nature, 13 June 2012, it appears that a single infected person could harbour many genetically different Plasmodium falciparum parasites. The team from Oxford University found that these parasite populations easily swap DNA to create new forms. This evidently raises the question how far PCR (polymer chain reaction...
