Artemisinin[edit]

Can Artemisinin also be created form the plant at home ? Also read that it can be made syntheticly since recently ? perhaps include in article if this substance (pure artemisinin) can be made at home —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.246.144.106 (talk) 15:46, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Warburg's Tincture[edit]

I have added Warburg's Tincture to this article page. I hope my addition is satisfactory. I have stated this drug is no longer used as antimalarial. I had added the internal link code for ease of readers to access the article on Warburg's Tincture.--Roland Sparkes (talk) 02:43, 5 January 2010 (UTC)

Hydrangea[edit]

Dichroa febrifuga (Shang shan) was appearantly used as a medicine aswell.

Create new article specifically for antimalarial resistance[edit]

Dear All

I propose the creation of an article specifically on Antimalarial drug resistance. To do this there would need to be a consensus in favour, so please let me know what your views are.

I am confident that this article is needed because antimalarial resistance is a large and important subject in its own right, constituting a global threat to efforts to control malaria. In an analogous way I note there is an article on Antibiotic resistance in addition to the one on Antibacterials, and to my knowledge antimalarial resistance is generally regarded as being as important as antibiotic resistance.

Currently the section on antimalarial resistance is limited to three shortish segments within what is already a large article on antimalarials (and to which more detail is likely to be added). In my view both Antimalarials and the material on Resistance would benefit from revision, but I (and presumably others) are disinclined to do this if an article feels cramped and poorly structured. I also observed that the current resistance section has only one reference (for the statement that resistance is common). I think we can do better.

The proposal would be to separate this into two articles, with one obviously linked to the other. I could create the new article with several sections and 10-20 references to get it going. Relevant content from Antimalarials could easily be transferred to the new article.

I am very grateful for any feedback on this. I will also post a similar section on WikiProject_Pharmacology.
