Therapeutic activity of medicinal plants and their derivatives in controlling mosquito vector-borne diseases in north-east India

Author(s): Arunima Choudhury and Innifa Hasan
Abstract:
North-east India is one of the highly affected region by mosquito-borne diseases. MBDs cause major hindrance in the lives as well as survivability of people here. The most reported mosquito vector-borne diseases here are Malaria, Dengue, Japanese encaphalities, Lymphatic filariasis and Chikungunya to name a few. While the hot and humid climate is one of the factor for widespread distribution of mosquito species in North-eastern states, it is also bestowed with abundant medicinal plants which can be used for the treatment of MBDs. The long-standing innate connection between the ethnic groups and the environment, particularly with plants, has given contemporary civilization access to a wide range of herbal treatments. This study mainly focuses on the present scenario of MBD in north-eastern states of India and the therapeutic uses of plants endemic to this region which have medicinal properties to cure or prevent such diseases.
