Abstract
Background: Malaria is endemic in all tropical regions of the world. Children are the most vulnerable to the infection of malaria due to their weak resistance because of age and inability to express themselves and to drive away the mosquitoes which are the vectors of the disease, although they are supposed to be more protected because of the very high volume of erythrocytes since malaria parasites actually destroy the erythrocytes. Also, the high cost of anti-malaria drugs due to high exchange rate of local currencies to the foreign currencies makes the purchase of anti-malaria drugs almost impossible to the people in this region who are worse hit by the malaria infection. Methods: Two hundred (200) patients suspected of suffering from malaria were randomly recruited into the study, their consent was obtained verbally and were assured of strict confidentiality before the study commenced. The plant Phyllantus amarus was aseptically collected from some field in Benin City, identified in the Pharmacognosy Department of University of Benin, Benin city, Nigeria. They were brought to boil in about 100 ml of sterile distilled water. The patients were given after every meal a full cup of it to drink trice daily (TDS) carried out for a period of six months. Results: Satisfactory clinical response was achieved at the end of treatment as symptoms of malaria disappeared and malaria parasites were not found in blood sample of the patients during laboratory diagnosis. Conclusion: From this study, it can be concluded that plant Phyllanthus amarus is useful in the treatment of malaria.
