Berberine, extracted from Arcangelisia flava dose-dependently inhibited telomerase activity in erythrocytic cycle of Plasmodium flaciparum suggested P. Study was done to determine whether the pharmacologic effects of A. Berberine as the chloride has been found to be active against a number of gram-positive as well as gram-negative bacteria, such as Diplococcus pneumoniaeEscherichia coliNeisseria gonorrhoeaeSalmonella typhosaShigella dysenteriaeStaphylococcus aureusS.
