about this item
Malaria is a potentially life-threatening disease that affects millions worldwide with a huge global disease burden, especially in Africa. More recently, the emergence and spread of multi-drug resistance in parts of Southeast Asia prompts the urgent need for novel and effective therapy against the disease. This work aims to give an up-to-date and comprehensive review of botanical medicine used for malaria to track the progress of research. It serves as a guide and starting platform for research, as well as stimulating general interest and awareness of the potential of medicinal plants in the prophylaxis and treatment of malaria.
