Artesunate 50 mg

Artesunate is a water-soluble hemisuccinate derivative of artemisinin. It is unstable in neutral solution and the injectable formulation must be prepared immediately before use in 5% (w/v) sodium bicarbonate solution to produce the salt sodium artesunate. After parenteral administration, it is rapidly hydrolysed to the active metabolite dihydroartemisinin. The oral formulation is probably hydrolysed completely before entering the systemic circulation. Artesunate has been reported to clear fever in patients with severe falciparum malaria 16-25 hours after parenteral administration.

Uses

Artesunate is used to treat chloroquine resistant malaria and complicated malaria like cerebral malaria.

• orally: treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria in areas where there is evidence of chloroquine, pyrimethamine/sulfadoxine, mefloquine and quinine resistance. It should always be administered together with mefloquine in full therapeutic dose.

• parenterally: treatment of severe falciparum malaria in areas where there is evidence of quinine resistance. Radical cure is then effected with a full course of an effective oral antimalarial.

How it works

Artesunate belongs to class of medications called anti-malarial. It acts by producing free radicals which kills the malarial parasite (plasmodium).
