LA PARAMECIE NOUS PERMETTRA-T-ELLE DE COMPRENDRE LE PLASMODIUM?

Pantoffeltierchen als Versuchskarnikel gegen Malaria

De premiers essais en 2009 menés par IFBV-BELHERB avaient montré que la tisane Artemisia annua et la lumière UV tétanisaient les Paramécies dans l’eau. Ce protozoaire est souvent utilisé pour étudier la présence de substances chimiques dans les milieux aquatiques. Nous avons suggéré à une équipe de jeunes chercheurs katangais, Dr Jérôme Munya et Dr Constant Kansongo de reprendre ces expériences sur base du document en annexe pour voir si des essais sur Paramécie permettraient éventuellement de mieux comprendre l’action...

Transmission blocking vaccines fail but Artemisia is very efficient

Artemisiatee stärker als Impfstoffe

Vaccines blocking the invasion of malaria sporozoites failed so far, after 30 years of efforts, millions spent, and disastrous human clinical trials. The efforts and the millions are now focused on vaccines blocking transmission by gametocytes. The results are not yet encouraging but the updated Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap foresees that there will be a TBV vaccine available in 2030. The update was necessary as the program launched by WHO in 2000 ( TDR/RBM/MAL/VAC/2000.1) has not yet progressed very far. Ogobara K. Doumbo,...

Stability after ageing of Artemisia plants

Les plantes séchées Artemisia gardent leurs propriétés avec les années

In 2001 WHO posted a statement on their home page, without signatures, without references: « Due to the instability of artemisinin in raw materials of Artemisia annua L, the leaves need to be stored in cool conditions — preferably below 20°C. Most malaria endemic countries have warm climates and people generally lack access to refrigeration, so it is difficult for patients to keep artemisinin-containing tea bags under 20°C in their homes” A statement not substantiated by scientific papers. Cui bono? Our associations immediately...

Silica particles and malaria

Silikastaub wirkt gegen Malaria

Chronic inhalation of crystalline silica is an occupational hazard that results in silicosis due to the toxicity of silica particles to lung cells It is thus surprising to read that silica nanoparticles are extensively applied for drug delivery Silica particles are used as conveyors of drugs with low bioavailability. Even for artemether. Jaywant N.Pawara Harita R.Desaia Kailas Exploring the potential of porous silicas as a carrier system for dissolution rate enhancement of artemether. Asian Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences 2016. 11,...
