Artemether injection is an anti-malarial product manufactured and used for the treatment of drug resistant strains of malaria p. falciparum and p. vivax. It can be used both on its own, and in combination (often with lumefantrine) for the treatment of malaria in both adults and children. Its active ingredient is artemether, which is a highly effective anti-malarial which has been shown to clear fever within 30-48 hours. For injections it comes as a solution, which should only be administered by your doctor or healthcare provider into a large muscle.
Artemether is a lipid soluble methylether of dihydroartemisinin. Artemisinin is a novel sesquiterpene lactone, extracted from the leaves of the shrub Artemesia annua and possesses an endoperoxide bridge which is a rare feature in natural products. The endoperoxide bridge is essential for its antimalarial activity.
