Artemether+ lumefantrine tabs

short description:


  • : It comprises a fixed ratio of 1:6 parts of artemether and lumefantrine respectively.The site of anti-parasitic action of both components is the food vacuole of the malaria parasite, where they are thought to interfere with the conversion of haem, a toxic intermediate produced during heamoglobin breakdown, to the non-toxic haenozoin, malaria pigment. Lumefantrine is thought to interfere with polymerisation process while artemether generates reactive metabolites as a result of the interactions between its peroxide nucleic acid, and protein synthesis within the malaria parasite. Data from in-vitro and in-vivo studies show that it did not induce resistance. The antimalarial cativity of the combination of lumefantrine and artemether in it is greater than that of erther substance alone.
