Biological Activity for Artemether

Artemether is an antimalarial. Prevents cerebral malaria in Plasmodium berghei infected mice. Exhibits synergistic effects with Methylene Blue (Cat. No. 3213) against P. falciparum in vitro. Inhibits neuroinflammation in neuronal/microglial cell co-cultures via induction of Nrf2 expression.
