High solubility and stability of artemisinin in aqueous infusions

L'artemisinine est soluble et stable dans l'eau

For 30 years, it was claimed that Artemisia annua tea infusions could not be used as remedy because artemisinin was barely soluble in water. The “WHO Position Statement on Effectiveness of Non-tablet Forms of Artemisia annua L against Malaria “, present for long years on the WHO site, not dated, not signed, not refenced, bluntly states: “it is virtually impossible for a tea bag to contain the amount of substance required to cure malaria. Artemisinin … is unstable when heated. Boiling water to make tea may cause it to lose any...

Malaria recrudescence worldwide in 2017

Mehr Malaria, nicht weniger 2017

Bigpharma-WHO-Gates desperately try to ignore peer reviewed scientific papers documenting the spread of ACT resistance in at least 12 African countries (see “Artemisinin resistance In Africa” www.malariaworld.org). Several medical teams in Africa have demonstrated in randomized, double blind clinical trials that Artemisia infusions are powerful in therapy and prophylaxis (see “Breaking news from clinical trials with Artemisia plants” www.malariaworld.org). How long will the business and genocide with nets, pills and dubious...

Are in vitro antimalarial assays a waste of time?

In vitro efficiency does not guarantee in vivo

Most of the assessments on the antimalarial efficacy of a molecule are made in vitro. In the case of plant material, the first step is generally the extraction with an organic solvent. The extract is then lyophilized, frozen and stored for subsequent trials. A recent research paper from the University of Al Quds Akkawi M, Jaber S, Abu-Remeleh Q, Engeu OP, Lutgen P (2014) . Investigations of Artemisia Annua and Artemisia sieberi Water Extracts Inhibitory Effects on β-Hematin Formation. Med Aromat Plants 3: 150. doi:...
