EFFECT OF BIOACTIVE FROM <i>Phyllathus niruri</i> ON BEFORE AND DURING INFECTION OF <i>Plasmodium berghei</i> IN MICE


Malaria is a health problem in many countries, including Indonesia. The problem is diffi­cult to be solved due to resistance on many antimalarial drugs. Therefore, alternative treat­ment is needed to be developed. Phyllanthus niruri before infection can increase the activ­ity of macrophages in mice were infected by Plasmodium berghei but there has been no research after infection. This study aims to compare the effect of P. niruri between before and after infection with malaria.
