Common dietary flavonoids inhibit the growth of the intraerythrocytic malaria parasite

Lehane, Adele, M; Saliba, Kevin, J


Background Flavonoids are abundant plant phenolic compounds. More than 6000 have been identified to date, and some have been shown to possess antiparasitic activity. Here we investigate the effects of a range of common dietary flavonoids on the growth of two strains of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
