Malaria is caused by the bite of female virus-carrier mosquito. It affects the large majority of local population. In 2011, 4.3 million Pakistanis succumbed to malaria while 26 million are at a risk of developing the infection. Fantar is effective against both species of malaria causing viruses, i.e., P.falciparum and P.vivax.
- Artemether – It kills the malaria-causing parasite known as Plasmodium and its species.
- Lumefantrine – It is also an anti-malarial drug effective against Plasmodium in its erythrocytic stage.
Fantar® kills the plasmodium by inhibiting nucleic acid and protein formation processes and preventing the growth of malarial parasites in the blood.
