New macrofilaricidal leads from plants?






Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 41(1): 1-9

New macrofilaricidal leads from plants?

The reviewer tabulates 90 plants reported to be of value in the treatment of filarial infections, giving the plant part used, route of administration, country of source, indication or activity, and literature reference. He argues that, although ivermectin is expected to reduce the prevalence of blindness resulting from onchocerciasis, this microfilaricidal drug is unlikely to prevent transmission of the disease.

Two lectins were purified from tuberous roots of Trichosanthes japonica. The major lectin, which was named TJA-II, interacted with Fuc alpha 1 leads to 2Gal beta/GalNAc beta 1 leads to groups, and the other one, which passed through a porcine stom...

The Cl(-) requirement in the redox cycle of the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) was determined by measurements of flash-induced UV absorbance changes in Cl(-)-depleted and Cl(-)-reconstituted photosystem II membranes. On the first flash after dark a...

CD36 is a glycoprotein included in the bovine milk fat globule membrane derived from mammary secretory epithelial cells during lactation. Asparagine-linked sugar chains were quantitatively released from CD36 as oligosaccharides by hydrazinolysis....

The antifilarial compound diethylcarbamazine (N,N-diethyl-4-methyl-2-piperazine, DEC) is known rather for its micro- than macrofilaricidal activity. But in some human filariasis, i.e., loaiasis, lymphatic filariasis, the spectrum of DEC activities...

Evidence is presented that the normal female is a nonreciprocal translocation heterozyg...
