Artemesia Annua - Cure for MalariaMosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria continue to be major health problem in most tropical countries, including India. The severity of this problem is alleviated due to the fact that the malarial parasite quickly adapts to the various drugs that are used to fight it. Recent studies show that the parasite has become resistant to Chloroquine and Sulfapyrimethamine. One of the drugs that still remains effective is Quinine, however it has a number of undesirable side effects.
One of the alternative treatments for malaria that has proven to be successful is the use of the herb Artemisia Annua.
This discovery was hailed as a major breakthrough in the fight against malaria at a recent meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO). This anti-malarial drug is now available in the form of intravenous injections, intramuscular injections, tablets, capsules, and suppositories. It also holds very important ramifications for other countries, such as India, that have a rich history of traditional medicine. If the strategy adopted by the Chinese in adopting their ancient medical techniques to modern medical practices is utilized by other such countries, it could lead to many more breakthroughs in disease treatment and eradication.
