Mechanism Of Action: Dihydroartemisin is the active metabolite of all artemisin compounds. It is a synthetic derivative of artemisin, and it’s widely used as an intermediate in the preparation of other artemisin derived drugs. The mechanism of action involves cleavage of endoperoxide bridges by iron, producing free radicals which damage biological macromolecules causing oxidative stress in the cells of the parasite. Piperaquine is an antiparasitic drug used to treat malaria. It kills parasites by disrupting the detoxification of host heme. It functions by accumulating in the parasite digestive vacoule.
