Abstract
Background: Medicinal plants play an important role in the treatment of malaria especially in developing countries where resources are limited. Thus, it is crucial to document medicinal plants used for treatment of malaria and other diseases. This study documented medicinal plants that are traditionally used for treatment of malaria in Dembia District, Northwest Ethiopia. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted in four malarious villages of Denbia District, Amhara Region, Northwest Ethiopia in March 2013. Information was collected by interviewing traditional healers using semi-structured questionnaire. Specimens of the reported antimalarial plants were collected and stored at the Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Gondar, following identification. Results: A total of 30 traditional healers were interviewed of which 96.7% were males and 3.3% females. Twenty four plants species used in the treatment of malaria were identified. Detailing information such as common and vernacular names, parts used, methods of preparation, frequency and duration of use were compiled. Of the plants identified during the survey, Allium sativum (32.2%), Adhatoda schimperiana (22.6%), Croton macrostachys (6.4%) and Brassica nigra (6.4%) showed the highest incidence of encounter. The traditional usage of fresh bile from domestic goat, Capra aegagrus , (6.4%) and white fish (3.2%) in the treatment of malaria is also reported by the healers. Conclusions: The results provide data for further pharmacological and toxicological studies and development of commercial antimalarial phytotherapy products. Biography Abyot Endale has completed his M.Sc. in Pharmacognosy in August 2012 from Addis Ababa University and his B.Pharm from University of Gondar in July, 2007. He is the head of Pharmacognosy Department, University of Gondar. Currently, he is PI of the research ?antimalarial evaluation of endogenous Aloe species? and main coordinator of the project ?Capacity building of Traditional Health Practitioners in Gondar town ?and he has published his finding in reputed journals.
