High solubility and stability of artemisinin in aqueous infusions

L'artemisinine est soluble et stable dans l'eau

For 30 years, it was claimed that Artemisia annua tea infusions could not be used as remedy because artemisinin was barely soluble in water. The “WHO Position Statement on Effectiveness of Non-tablet Forms of Artemisia annua L against Malaria “, present for long years on the WHO site, not dated, not signed, not refenced, bluntly states: “it is virtually impossible for a tea bag to contain the amount of substance required to cure malaria.

Most of the assessments on the antimalarial efficacy of a molecule are made in vitro. In the case of plant material, the first step is generally the extraction with an organic solvent. The extract is then lyophilized, frozen and stored for subsequent trials. A recent research paper from the University of Al Quds Akkawi M, Jaber S, Abu-Remeleh Q, Engeu OP, Lutgen P (2014) .

And actually, wild Artemisia has been used for millenniums in several regions of...
