Product Description

Product Overview


Composition

Artesunate …………………………………………………………….50 mg

Indications

Description

Artesunate and its active metabolite dihydroartemisinin are potent blood schizonticides, active against the ring stage of the parasite. It is effective against P. falciparum resistant to all other antimalarial drugs. It does not have hypnozoiticidal activity. It reduces gametocyte carriage rate.

The functional group responsible for antimalarial activity of artesunate is endoperoxide bond. Release of an active oxygen species from this bond kills the parasite if accumulated in the erythrocytic cells.
