Percentage of parasitaemia of Plasmodium berghei strain ANKA in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice at day 4 of infection, after 4 days of treatment with: artesunate (5 mg/kg), solvent (H20 containing 10% DMSO, 5% Tween 80), unripe (150 mg/kg) and ripe (150 mg/kg) fruit kernel extracts. a Individual parasitaemia values for BALB/c mice, according to treatment group. 1)Data point outside axis limit. b Individual parasitaemia values for C57BL/6 mice, according to treatment group. In a, b means and SD values are depicted as horizontal and vertical bars respectively. The horizontal square bracket in b indicates significant difference (p = 0.024) between solvent control and unripe fruit kernel treatment. The artesunate treated group consistently showed parasitaemia levels lower than those of the other groups
