Emerging evidence in immunology

Artemisinin and its derivatives possess an immunomodulatory effect during either innate or adaptive immune responses in diverse cell types. Relevant scientific publications have shown that artemisinin compounds can modulate the immune response by regulating cell proliferation and reducing the production of proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines that will directly benefit the host.

New therapeutic and prophylactic approaches

Artemisinin could be used as a new candidate adjuvant, and act as pharmacological curative or preventive treatments. Therefore, artemisinin and its derivatives arise as a promising alternative to enhance cellular immune responses under non-pathological or pathological conditions due to their anti-inflammatory and immunoregulatory properties.
