Brand : sami pharm (pvt) ltd.
How it works
Both components Artemether/ Lumefantrine have their own action site in the malarial parasite. The presence of the endoperoxide bridge in Artemether (generating single oxygen and free radicals, those are very cytotoxic to the plasmodia) appears to be essential for antimalarial activity.
