Abstract EN

Background.

One of the most dangerous Plasmodium species is Plasmodium falciparum.

Hence, it causes a higher rate of mortality.

The resistance of Plasmodium falciparum to the ACT (Artemisinin-based Combination Therapies) has led to the search for new antimalarial drugs.

The purpose of this research was to assess the in vivo antiplasmodial activity of Entandrophragma cylindricum ethyl acetate extract to provide a scientific basis for the use of this medicinal plant to treat malaria.

Methods.

Entandrophragma cylindricum stem bark powder was macerated in ethyl acetate to obtain the extract.

The extract liquid filtrate was concentrated, evaporated and dry using a Rotavapor.

The Peter and Rane test were used for the suppressive and curative antiplasmodial activities at different doses (125, 250 and 500 mg/kg).

A positive and negative control groups were administered chloroquine (5 mg/kg) and 10% hypromelose, respectively.

To assess the parasitemia of the mice a thin blood smear was made.

Results.

The ethyl acetate extract completely (100%) inhibited the development of P.

berghei in the suppressive test at the dose of 500 mg/kg while that of the curative test was inhibited at 95%.

The extract-treated group (500 mg/kg) and (Chloroquine (5 mg/kg) group all survived.

The negative control group recorded a 100% mortality rate.

Conclusion.

The present study provides scientific confirmation on the use of E.

cylindricum stem bark as an antiplasmodial remedy.

However, the identification of the mode of action and the purification of the active compounds are necessary for further studies.
