Artemisia plus efficace que les medicaments contre la schistosomiase
Artemisia besser als Pillen gegen Bilharzia
Schistosomiasis (bilharzia), a serious neglected tropical disease affecting millions, has few cost-effective treatments, so two Artemisia species, A. annua and A. afra, were compared with the current standard praziquantel (PZQ) treatment l in a double blind, randomized, 800 patients clinical trial. Within 14 days of treatment, all Artemisia-treated patients had no detectable eggs in fecal smears, For PZQ it took 10 days more. .Both A. annua and A. afra provided faster effective treatment of schistosomiasis and should be considered for implementation on a global scale. This trial was run by our African partners in RDCongo. Und nicht vergessen, dass Schwester Elke Steinacher im Senegal uns 2013 auf die Heilkraft von Artemisia gegen Bilharzia hingewiesen hatte.
