Abstract: RESUMO: "Plantas tradicionalmente utilizadas contra malária: investigação fi toquímica e farmacológica de Momordica foetida". Folhas de Momordica foetida tradicionalmente usadas para tratar sintomas de malária em partes da África Oriental foram estudadas in vitro com respeito à sua atividade antimalárica. Utilizando-se o teste de incorporação de hipoxantina [ 3 H] a atividade antiplasmódica dos extratos hidrofílico e lipofílico contra a cepa sensíveis a cloroquina poW e o clone multiresistente Dd2 de Plasmodiu… Show more

“…Other flavonoid molecules such as catechin, epicatechin, quercetin, apigenin, myricetin, luteolin, and kaempferol have been reported in other Momordica species (Kubola and Siriamornpun 2008;Horax et al 2010;Nagarani et al 2014). Interestingly, Froelich et al (2007) extracted some of the identified flavonoids in M. foetida using methanol as solvent, and this is an indication that PHWE technique is comparable to traditional solvent-based methods. Furthermore, the extracted molecules are known to exhibit a wide spectrum of health-promoting properties.…”
