Natural products and Chagas' disease: a review of plant compounds studied for activity against Trypanosoma cruzi

Author affiliations

Abstract

Covering: 1995 to 2010

Here, we review studies that have investigated the activity of plant-derived compounds against Trypanosoma cruzi, the etiologic agent of Chagas' disease. In the last decade, more than 300 species belonging to almost 100 families have been evaluated for activity, and here we describe the compounds isolated; 85 references are cited.
