Author(s): Khomdram Niren Singh, Khomdram Bijoya Devi
Abstract: Development of new alternative antimalarial drugs is need of the hour since plasmodium becomes drug resistant and because drugs using nowadays have side effects. This need initiated intensive efforts for developing antimalarial drugs from indigenous medicinal plants. A survey was carried out in Jiribam sub-division, Manipur from November 2014 to September 2015 to explore the medicinal plants normally used by local people for treatment of malaria and its associated symptoms. A total of 21 different species of medicinal plants belonging to 15 families were found to use by local herbal healers and villagers to treat malaria and its associated symptoms. The present study is first of its kind in exploring medicinal plants of this region and an effort to assess the folk medicinal knowledge and practices of local people of Jiribam, Manipur towards treatment of malaria and associated symptoms.
