African cherry a possible novel cure for MalariaNew studies have shown that extracts of the leaves and bark of the African cherry could be used effectively to treat drug-resistant infections. They may hold the key to new and effective alternative antimalarial medicine.
A new study has established the possibility of developing antimicrobial agents of natural origin to manage possible infection from vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (VRSA) that are currently developing multi-resistance against many antibiotics.
According to allafrica.com, another study published in the Asian Journal of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences has validated the folklore use of extracts of African cherry in treatment of malaria.
Until now, there is a high level of treatment failure to conventional antimalarial drugs. Despite significant progress in the treatment of malaria, this disease has staged a huge comeback in large areas of the world, due to the development of drug resistant parasites.
