what i meant those with malaria should use artesunate instead of chlorquine or a mix of the two drugs so they may attack both malaria and hbsag.but this is in vitro only so everything needs to be confirmed in vivo
no, do not get malaria, it attacks liver too.this is crazy you may use artesunate and see if it lowers hbsag no need to get malaria.do check liver function while you use antimalaria drugs they all have some liver toxicity although very mild
So.... perhaps I should try to get myself infected with malaria, which will get me hospitalized so that I'm treated with artesunate, thereby possibly seroconverting? Hmm. Definitely something to keep in mind.
Effect of artemisinin/artesunate as inhibitors of hepatitis B virus production in an "in vitro" replicative system.
since artesunate is also the most potent malaria drug it is best to use this one, please let us know if you can do also hbsag quantity in iu/ml test while on artesunate
some years ago a doctor cronic carrier of hbv wrote me an email and he also methioned that his mother cleared hbv after malaria treatment after a lifetime of cronic carrier, so malaria drug may have an hbv effec too and that would be good to try
