Both the historical and experimental data indicate that increases in the concentration of foliar artemesinin are likely to continue in parallel with the ongoing increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide," says Ziska.
The researchers then turned to current and future artemesinin concentrations.
Overall, these data provide the first evidence that historic and projected increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide may be associated with global changes of artemesinin chemistry, potentially making a greater quantity of drug available for the same area of cultivation.
Artemesinin is a compound used to treat at malaria.
family of drugs, considered the strongest drug against the deadliest form of malaria, The evidences came during a clinical trial of two teams of scientists.
Botanically Enhanced Medicinal Mushrooms, a multivitamin nutrient supplement, coenzyme QIOfCoQIO), omega 3, vitamin D3, melatonin, Prolysin C, artemesinin
, sodium phenylbutyrate, curcumin, green tea extract, quercetin, feverfew, and oral homeopathics
These include insecticide-treated bed nets for the prevention of malaria, antiretroviral drugs to expand access to antiretroviral therapy in Africa, HIV rapid test kits, laboratory equipment to support the roll out of antiretroviral therapy such as CD4 count and determination of lymphocyte count, artemesinin
combination therapy and other anti-malarial drugs and tuberculosis drugs to support direct observed treatment (DOTS), a TB control strategy.
However, the global importance of reserving artemesinins
for malaria treatment means that artemether is unlikely to be used as a strategy for schistosomiasis prophylaxis due to the risk of selecting for resistant strains.
