  Humoral response exhibited by a fraction of Plasmodium berghei is evaluated in the present study. Immunization of mice with S fraction (supernatant of 20,000 rpm centrifugation) of Plasmodium berghei exhibited high humoral immune response. S fraction contained proteins of molecular weight ranging from 23.15-205.00 kDa. The humoral response was serodiagnostically analyzed employing ELISA, IFA and in vitro invasion inhibition assays. Antimalarial antibodies significantly inhibited invasion of Plasmodium berghei in short-term invasion assay. From the in vitro culture study it was found that S fraction exhibits a high humoral response and sera of five out of ten immunized mice inhibited more than 50% of invasion of erythrocytes by P. berghei.

  Extracts of tuber, leaves and fruits from Arisaema jacquemontii Bl. (Himalayan or Jacquemont’s cobra lily) were evaluated for their antimalarial properties against Plasmodium berghei (NK-65) maintained in white Swiss mice, Mus musculus (BALB/c). Peter’s 4 day test was employed and animals were administered to ethanol prepared extracts of plant parts orally. Extracts significantly inhibited multiplication of Plasmodium berghei. Tuber extract inhibited about 70% propagation of parasite followed by leaves and fruit while no parasite was seen in the smears of chloroquine treated mice.
