Table 2: Suppressive effect of cysteine protease inhibitors' fraction of S. longepedunculata in chloroquine-resistant P. berghei-infected Mice.


Treatment (/kg) Parasitemia (%) Chemosuppression (%)

CPI (34 mg) 2.93 ± 1.08 * 44.43
CPI (23 mg) 2.61 ± 1.36 * 50.43
CPI (11 mg) 4.72 ± 1.49 10.38
Artemether (2 mg) 1.38 ± 0.49 * 73.77
N/S (10 mL) 5.27 ± 1.21

Data presented are means ± SD and analysed using one way ANOVA followed by Dunnett's post hoc test. Values with the superscript * differs significantly ( p≤0.05) from the normal saline group within the same column; CPI = Cysteine protease inhibitors, N/S = Normal Saline.
