Table 3: Curative effect of cysteine protease inhibitors' fraction of S. longepedunculata in chloroquine-resistant P. berghei-infected Mice.


Treatment (/kg) Parasitemia (%) Curative (%)

CPI (34 mg) 3.07 ± 0.83 * 59.77
CPI (23 mg) 3.22 ± 1.00 * 57.73
CPI (11 mg) 3.49 ± 0.85 * 54.18
Artemether (2 mg) 1.38 ± 0.49 * 81.89
N/S (10 mL) 7.62 ± 2.50

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.
