Artemisinin: hoax or dogma
Since 30 years the merits of this molecule are based on in vitro tests, not on in vivo metabolism. Its pathway in the human body is still a mystery. Many research groups meanwhile have clearly established that other molecules in artemisia annua are as effective against malaria in vivo, that the infusion, capsules with powdered leaves and even lemonade are better than ACTs , and without any sign of resistance. Of no avail !
The ship with ACTs may be sinking, but Bigpharma maintains frenetic housekeeping activities on the Titanic.
